redefiningrealness:

I’m a 26-year-old MTF and, more importantly, I’m a human being.
I value authenticity and connectivity. I believe in tearing down the confined and restricted walls of hatred and fear of what we don’t understand and hope for a world where people grow closer together.
I’m an adventurer at heart and thrive for excitement and new challenges. When I’m not at work, you can find me on my road bike or mountain bike or at home cuddling with my dog. I’m no chef, but I love to cook!
I believe there aren’t many finer things in life than connecting with loved ones and people over great food. I’m also a team leader at work and a leader in life, with a shirt off my back mentality.
P.S. I’m also addicted to tattoos! You can follow me on YouTube. 
I am Bailey: adventurer, loving, giving, motivator, and loyal.
I Am #RedefiningRealness.

These stories and faces continue to give me all my life.

I am a woman…I have never asked for any special consideration. I only wanted to compete. I do not want any other woman to suffer the discrimination I have endured.
The mission is not impossible if we can move past our own insecurities to work together. We need not settle for crumbs. We need no longer hide for fear of the discrimination Jenna experienced. We can say no more. We can say being transgender is beautiful, and we have the right to dream. The revolution doesn’t happen alone.
Trans women exponentially add to the physical and spiritual evolution of womanhood.

Taking the stage at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York.

1500 people in the audience, two trans sisters in solidarity on stage. This was the moment that validated all the good and bad decisions I made in my short life. Laverne Cox is a woman I’m proud to call a friend and sister.

Chaz’s experience with his body is not inherently wrong for not being the same as my experience. When advocates of our community teach about trans* folks as if we all take part in this singular narrative, however, we set up a dichotomy within our own community: those who are trans* enough for following this narrative and those who are not for being different.

My Huffington Post conversation with journalist Clay Cane, a video interview shot and edited by my Aaron Tredwell.

My dear friend Mila Jam just released her music video for her single “Warrior.”

The message of the song is beyond empowering and the lyrics are even more inspirational - especially when you take into account the fact that Mila is an artist who just so happens to be trans.

Her perseverance, drive and talent can be an inspiration to us all. So proud to know her!
