My breasts were growing, and I was not "passing." In the midst of all that, we traveled to this incredibly conservative Southern beach destination, and I only got through it by drinking copiously, hiding behind my family, and when all else failed, staying behind in the hotel room.

The second time, I went to a very different beach: Jacob Riis Park in Far Rockaway, Queens.

Riis has long been known as a safe haven for NYC’s LGBTQ community, and instead of hiding (or drinking my anxieties away), I swam topless, wearing boy shorts and a snapback hat.

I didn’t need to focus on performing as female, didn’t feel that I needed to "pass" to survive.

I definitely practice body positivity and body acceptance, and it's easy for me to want to radiate that for other people, especially after having been on a difficult journey with my own body.

But there is a physical residue of trauma and self-hate that a lot of us are constantly cleansing from our bodies."As trans and gender non-conforming people, every interaction we have with the world can become infinitely complicated when we realize that our bodies and spirits, and the way we've manifested in them, have no role in our majority culture, so we have to make those roles for ourselves.

It’s unequal and unfair, but as a white person I experience a certain level of safety that trans people of color don’t.

I have a valid voice that can speak about my own experience, and to some extent speak for the trans community, but I never want my narrative as a white trans woman to come before that of a person of color."My happiest memories as a kid are swimming or being in nature near a body of water.

Are we "passing" in a way that fits the cisnormative ideal that is forced on most trans individuals?
