If my hair were shorter…
I had my first clue that I was truly transgender when I was dressed for a lip sync performance (to Justin Timberlake, of course). I was feeling so great in my new outfit from Urban Outfitters and wearing a binder to strap down my 38C chest. I was in the downstairs bathroom of a gay nightclub in Boston and I remember saying out loud to myself, “if my hair was shorter, I would pass so well.” After that I cut my hair. Another five years passed. And here I am today.
