My name is Dani. I’ve been on hormones since January 2012, when I was 24 1/2 years old. I haven’t gone out and publicly said I’m transitioning to a lot of people, because I’m a bit on the reserved side (until I find a collection of really bad jokes to share). I quietly changed the gender on my FB a few months ago, and just changed my profile picture from one of my faceless costumes to this photo.
It’s raised a lot of questions I haven’t answered and a lot of support I still have to acknowledge. I’ve served in Iraq and West Africa, punched Hercules, and kidnapped Stan Lee. This is the hardest thing I have ever done, but it’s okay because I have the best friends in the world to help me through it.
