This reflection on trans embodiment is one of many passages in the diaries of Lou Sullivan which seemed to call out for printing. Lou Sullivan, just fifteen years old when he wrote these particular lines, was also a printer whose shop helped circulate pamphlets and books about trans and queer identity in a time where information and community weren't readily available online. Lou was one of the first trans men to live an openly gay life, and spent his life fighting to prevent the medical establishment from denying care to non-heterosexual trans people. Tragically, he died of AIDS at age 40.
