After yesterday some people wanted to see a more detailed comparison photoset of my transition. 2010: Pre-transition. 2012: Pre T & a few months on T. 2015: now ✌🏻️. (Started Testosterone June, 4th 2012. Top surgery May, 23rd 2013 with Dr. Garramone in Florida) #ftm #transman #transgender #hrt #testosterone #topsurgery #ftmfitness
First Day of Testosterone vs. Today 3+ Years. I don't think I've ever shown the first picture before. I think only the person who took it has seen it. I was smiling because I was just about to open this amazing new chapter in my life. But I was so skinny and depressed. That day was the turning point from the lowest point in my life. When I say medically transitioning saved my life I'm saying that literally. I wasn't eating. I hated my body. I seriously wanted to die. You can see it in the way I look. I was scared to show this picture because it is a physical embodiment of how badly I was struggling. People need to know that I didn't go from a beauty pageant contestant to a man. I hit rock bottom between then. I had to relearn to love my body. I did a lot of damage from way I treated my body. I'm still learning and I will never stop learning more about how to treat myself with love and dignity. People need to understand that transitioning isn't for anyone else. It's for you. It's your body. You don't have to be ripped to be a man. You don't have to lift weights. It is okay to have that goal. I have that goal. I want to be the strongest version of myself in all aspects of my life. But that means mental and emotional health too. Start there. It will impact every aspect of your life including your body. #extremelylong #but #important #liveauthentically #ftm #transgender #trans #topsurgery #testosterone #hrt #lgbtq #nofilter
En 2011, después de ser finalista de Miss Ohio, esta reina belleza tomó la decisión de convertirse en hombre.
Su nombre es Ashton Colby de 23 años y antes de tomar la decisión de ya no ser más una mujer, tuvo grandes posibilidades de convertirse en Miss América. Actualmente es un ejemplo para la comunidad transgénero.
En tan solo 4 años, cambió su físico, dejó de ser de una mujer rubia, para convertirse en un atractivo hombre.
Colby también expresó que la decisión de convertirse en un hombre transgénero fue sorpresiva, ya que la gente que le rodea no entendió que siendo una escultural mujer quisiera tomar esa decisión.
Sin embargo, a Ashton (nombre que usa por motivos de privacidad) nunca le gustó ir a ballet o usar vestidos, pero aceptaba las imposiciones de su familia para encajar.
