About two months ago, I came out of the closet as a transgender woman. There has been a lot of discussion about all of this, both in closed arenas and open areas, but curiously I have stayed very quiet here. I didn’t even update the main header until just now, and the site URL still bears my old name. As soon as I can, I’m probably going to have to get that changed. But here we are, all about to embark on a new journey.
So to sum up: Yes, I am changing everything over to read “Phoebe” instead of “John”. This has been a couple of years in the making, and while outwardly it seems sudden, behind the scenes it’s been agonizing. I am planning on opening up 2015 with a full discussion of the whole process, but for the time being, please look forward to it.
