Pride Series - April Paige

Pride Series Day 17 we talk to April Paige a 21 year old Trans Woman from Texas. April Paige is a 21 year old trans woman who has been on hormone replacement therapy for 4 and a half months. She spends most of her time online helping trans people who are just coming out to themselves with what possibilities lie ahead and the options available to them. In her day job she works building computers and as a tech worker. For fun April likes to race cars, ride dirt bikes and loves nerdy things like anime and gunpla.

Introduction

 

Living your authentic life is exactly what every trans person in this world is doing, despite some of the hurdles we encounter along our journey. Living authentic is something that many of us have waited a lifetime for it to happen and many of us are eagerly trying to make up time that was lost. Choosing to live your authentic life is not an easy decision and never an easy process. Each day we get closer to being able to live authentically without any hurdles to overcome. Stay true to yourself and live authentically.
