Raquel Velasquez, about 6 months into my transition, pre everything.
I was in a fashion show a few months ago, and it was the first time I truly believed that I could be beautiful. I hadn’t looked through the pictures till just now. I hope to bring myself to that mental place more often.
It was my wonderful friend’s project, meant to incorporate environmental and social justice issues into fashion design.
