Necítili sa ako vo vlastnej koži: Príbehy 9-tich mužov, ktorí raz boli ženami

V roku 2015 sa víťazkou šou Holandsko hľadá topmodelku stala Loiza Lamers, ktorá sa tak stala prvou transrodovou víťazkou tejto šou. Toto víťazstvo tak zanechalo stopu a zapísalo sa do histórie módy. Úplne to zmenilo pohľad na krásu ako takú a teraz môžete transrodové ženy či mužov vidieť na titulných stranách módnych magazínov či svetových mól. V tomto článku Vám predstavíme príbehy 9-tich mužov, ktorí boli raz ženami.

 

# 1  Balian Buschbaum

V roku 2007 Yvonne Buschbaum, nemecká olympijska skokanka o žrdi, oznámila odchod do športového dôchodku kvôli operácii na zmenu pohlavia. Podľa Baliana to bolo dobre premyslené rozhodnutie. Sám v relácii National Geographic priznal, že už od detstva cítil, že sa narodil v zlom tela a chcel to zmeniť. V roku 2013 už ako Balian Buschbaum vystúpil v nemeckej verzii Dancing With the Stars (podobná šou ako Let’s Dance). Momentálne sa zaoberá koučingom života a často sa objavuje aj na stránkach módnych časopisov.

# 2  Chaz Bono

Bono, to znie veľmi povedome. To preto, lebo Chaz Bono je jediné dieťa slávnej dvojky – Sonny Bono a Cher! Narodil sa v roku 1969 ako Chastity Bono a ako malé dievča vystupovala v komediálnej šou svojich rodičov. Až do roku 2000 pracoval ako herec, spisovateľ a riaditeľ médii pre Alianciu gayov a lesbičiek proti hanobeniu (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation – GLAAD). V roku 2008 začal s fyzickou premenou zo ženy na muža a o svojich skúsenostiach sa rozhovoril vo filme Becoming Chaz.

# 3  Buck Angel

Buck Angel je žijúca legenda a ikona LGBT komunity. Narodil sa ako Susan a pracoval ako profesionálna modelka a svoje tajomstvo tak skrýval roky.

K začatiu nového života mu dopomohla operácia na zmenu pohlavia. V roku 2007 bol ocenený titulom Transsexuálny herec roka v Cenách filmov pre dospelých (Adult Video News Award).

Aging. Man. Transsexual. Does this make me wiser? Do I use my life experience to help show a younger generation that there is a future? I want to. I want to be a tranpa. I want to be a safe space for youngsters who feel lost. Youngsters who do not feel connected to a community that has redefined itself. I believe in the future of us. What I fear is that many youth who feel as I will be thrown under the bus because they are not following a new guideline that has removed what it feels is a threat. I fear that the youth who just want what I wanted will be told that it is not valid to feel like a man. That gender is not real. That making the choice I made is now derogatory and antiquated. That gender dysphoria is not real. This I fear. I once again will say my sex change saved my life and I feel a sense of obligation to be there for you. The ones who feel lost and are being told untruths. My story is truth. My story is fact. My heart is full of love and compassion. Every single one of us is valid. There is no one way to be and that is a fact. Learn this and grow. Stay focused on you. The universe will give you what you need. Love ❤️Tranpa photo: @allanamato

# 4  Lucas Silveira

Lucas Silviera je kanadský rockový spevák a skladateľ, ktorý sa narodil ako dievča – Lilia Silviera. V roku 2004 sa Lucas rodine priznal, že je transsexuál. Momentálne je frontmanom rockovej kapely the Cliks a je taktiež aktivistom LGBT komunity. V roku 2010 sa Silviera stal prvým transsexuálnym mužom, ktorý získal ocenenie Najsexi muž Kanady.

Last night I went to visit a special human being who I hadn’t seen in 15 years. My best friend throughout all of high school, Lisa. I spent 4 years doing everything with her. I met her in Mr. Lee’s science class and told her she looked like @madonna and that stamped it for life. The last year of high school for us was 1991. Things were so different and hard back then for LGBTQ folks but Lisa was brave and unlike anyone I’d ever met. She decided to start living her truth and came out to me. I wasn’t even close to ready at that time and was so afraid of myself that I emotionally distanced myself from her. A few months later of us not hanging out too much, she invited me to go with her to a lesbian club so I could see her new life. I did. I proceeded to get extremely drunk and ended up coming out to her as a lesbian that night as well. We’ve always stayed friends and in touch but as life happened, 15 years passed with us not seeing one another. She got married to her partner Joanne and had a beautiful son who I met last night for the first time who is an angel of a young man. It was Lisa’s first time seeing me in person in my presentation post transition. We talked and laughed for hours and it fed my soul in a way that I didn’t know I needed with an old friend. Lisa and I are very different people in many ways but when we’re together, we’re very much the same. Focused on love, friendship, and mutual respect for one another and man do we ever love to laugh together. We took a best friends photo when we graduated and this is our attempt over 20 years later to redo that white mock turtle neck moment. I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard in years. Here’s to high school best friends, to focusing on the amazing memories and to leaving the trauma of adolescence behind. I love this woman. It won’t be 15 years again. That is a promise. Tell the ones around you that you love them. You never know how long we have here. I love you all. I love you Lisa. Thank you for welcoming me into your home and family. #bestfriends #reunion

The only part of the woman I was that still resides inside this body today is the part that taught this body that it needs to fight to be seen, heard, and loved exactly for who I am authentically. Every root of my strength comes from my feminine side and although my particular femininity never resided in a female form in peace, it does now. I always find such irony in that but it is a beautiful piece of myself that I hold dearly and will never let go. Identified as one of you for 32 years, was read as one of you for 37, will never forget how hard and beautiful it was to be one of you and will honour, fight, respect, throw down for all of you till the day I die. Woman is the genesis of my being and I hold them with the deepest of respect and love. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I’m a better man for having been a woman. I’m late in the day but better late than never. Happy International Women’s Day. I love you all. #internationalwomensday

#transformationtuesday almost 19 years separate these pictures. It’s hard to keep perspective on your own journey. It’s way easier to compare yourself to other people’s pictures on social media, even though it has nothing to do with you. I do it. Maybe someone is doing it right now with my picture. 🤷🏻‍♂️ stay focused on your own progress! Your body, your life, your passions. . On the left, I was 20 years old and just about to start T. I was drinking and drugging nightly. Didn’t move my body, didn’t meditate, didn’t give af about a future. Couldn’t imagine being alive past 21, let alone almost 40. . On the right, sober for almost a decade, almost 40 years old, almost 20 years on T and in love with my life. . Aesthetics aren’t the point of this post, the investment in my well being is what it’s about. I can’t believe how good my life is because I literally couldn’t imagine I’d have a life that lasted this long. Finally at an age and stage that I can truly say I’m proud of myself for all that I’ve overcome and all I’ve accomplished. . . . . #Transmen #transgenderman #manoftransexperience #transman #ftm #ftmtransgender #transgender #f2m #transguy #transmasculine #trans #thisiswhattranslookslike #transandproud #translivesmatter #transvisibility #manoftransexperience

One of my favorite shirts. Created by @gottesss „RIP Patriarchy Your Time Has Come“ — We are all trapped by patriarchy, men included. What a time to start dismantling the patriarchy within ourselves. Men and masc folks, we gotta do the work. – Let’s acknowledge that masculinity is in crisis now and has basically always been in crisis. Ours is nothing new. – What is new is the language, the tools and the platforms we can access on a minute-to-minute basis to send out signals the world over and sound the alarm about how shit men are. That they are toxic. Another essential, nameable difference of this current movement versus those of the past is that we no longer give men the room to fail. If you fuck up, that’s a wrap. We tell men they are broken without offering any solutions for how to fix themselves. We tell them they are obsolete trash. We cancel them. Truly, this cancel culture does a poor job of allowing people who make mistakes to learn from them. I want to help. I want men to do the work to be better and do better and send out ripples into their communities. I want men to lean on each other to lead the way, instead of expecting women and non-binary people to „teach“ them how to engage in solidarity work. – Men are not the trash that needs disposing, the patriarchy is. Men need to grab some bags and take them to the curb. – #mindfulmasculinityworkbook is a solution oriented offering.

# 6  Jamie Wilson

Jamie Wilson je 22-ročný country spevák, ktorý žil ako žena 18 rokov až kým neprešiel operáciou na zmenu pohlavia. Po dvoch rokoch hormonálnej liečby sa zmenil Jamie na nepoznanie. Teraz je z neho aj nádejný model, ktorý sa objavil aj na titulke magazínu Candy a v reklamách rôznych značiek špecializujúcich sa na mužské spodné prádlo.

Un corpo scolpito, una passione sfrenata per la musica e due affascinanti occhi lagunari: ecco come si presenta oggi Jaimie Wilson, 21 anni, giovane musicista che sta spopolando non poco su Instagram. Ma cosa caratterizza davvero questo ragazzo non è il suo bell’aspetto di oggi quanto la sua storia precedente: Jaimie è infatti uno fra le milioni di persone transgender che vivono oggi negli Stati Uniti. Nel 2005, all’età di 18 anni, Jamie ha infatti deciso di intraprendere la delicata strada della transazione, conscio del fatto che finalmente avrebbe potuto incarnare ciò che realmente sentiva di essere: un uomo. In un primo momento non volevo fare coming out come transgender perché non ho mai mostrato alcun „segno“, come li definisce la gente. Ha spiegato il ragazzo in numerosi post presenti sul suo profilo Instagram ufficiale, tutt’oggi seguito da più di 400mila persone. #jamiewilson #trasformation #transgender #news #gossip #unavitadagossip

# 8  Aydian Dowling

Síce je ťažké tomu uveriť no tento nabúchaný, bradatý a potetovaný chlap bol kedysi ženou. Ako muž žije 8 rokov a kvôli tomu aby ľuďom priblížil jeho obdobie “prechodu” si založil Youtube kanál, kde okrem iného hovorí aj o bodybuildingu. Celosvetové uznanie získal v roku 2015, keď bol jedným z piatich semifinalistov v súťaži Ultimátny chlap magazínu Men’s Health. Aj keď nebol prvým transrodovým mužom na titulke magazínu Men’s Health, bol to dobrý začiatok jeho úspešnej modelingovej kariéry.

#My10yrsonT Oddly enough when I first came out as Trans I had NO intention of starting hormones, or getting any kind of surgery. I was scared to do anything medical to my body because there was not enough research and information on the long term effects of HRT or surgeries on Transgender Bodies. Which is still very limited to this day. * My plan was to try to ‚Naturally Transition‘ as they called it back then. I would use working out, supplements, and other things like voice lessons to help me feel more comfortable in the body I was born into. This didn’t last long. After doing my underground research I found the up keep of this kind of transition would cost hundreds of dollars a month. The supplements I was told that would help me, were not only expensive but also extremely dangerous- None of these supplements were FDA approved or had any regulations on them. Which meant I would be altering my body unaware of what could really be happening inside of me. These supplements could lead to Liver damage, heart disease, and some of them were literally over the counter steroids that have since been pulled off of the shelves. * When you’re Transgender and you don’t have professional, reliable, and knowledgeable Transgender friendly support on how to align yourself with your body- You put yourself at risk. * That’s why it’s IMPORTANT we as Trans people continue to advocate for ourselves within the healthcare system. We also desperately need our Cis-Allies to also step up and begin to request this kind of research, studies and information as well. * I’m happy I knew internally that doing things like getting T off the black market was an unsafe and risky thing to do. But many Transgender people feel too lost, too broke, and too broken to find the services (if any) available to them. * If you’re a Transgender body that needs to change to feel more empowered in your body- I hope this post reaches you. You are deserving of the medical assistance you need. You are worthy of the money and time it will take to have these changes made. Your voice is powerful enough to join us in the advocacy of our health care needs. You do not need to put yourself in danger. * * *

What do you want? I mean like, really want out of life? Most people answer „I want to be happy“- Which is great! But what are you doing right now to get closer to that happiness goal?? * Too often I personally find myself envisioning what I want out of life, yet I also have these self doubts of ‚that could never happen for me.‘ * Somewhere along the way, we lost our ability to believe in ourselves. I’ve been working over 10 years to break this belief. I’ve gotten much more confident in myself and I’ve felt more happy times in my life than ever before. * Don’t give up on yourself. Be the person you can count on when it comes to you and your dreams of what this life can give you. Keep going, Never give up, and remember that You are Enough! * * Learning to believe that what you want in life can actually happen? Drop a 🙌🏼 below to give your damn self a high five and keep going! * * * * #selfmotivation #selfawareness #happy #mylife #believeinyourself #nevergiveup #selfdevelopment #aydiandowling #masculinity #ftm #trans #transmasculine #dad #father #truth
