Merriam-Webster defines normalize as:

  • to bring or restore to a normal condition

I decided to register and start blogging again as a process of normalization. Through making writing a normal part of my life, I hope to normalize my life as a trans woman of color and trans activist. As more people enter my life, I find some are unsure of how to interact with me. I hope that by sharing my life and my thoughts on current events affecting my community, I can make my life and the life of my trans siblings normal rather than exotic. To normalize our existence in the world.
