today is my fifth anniversary of my top surgery- a day I’ll forever be thankful for. I still wish I could repay everyone and anyone who had helped me achieve this possibility. I love you all- srsly. this pic is from today- swipe for 2014 which was my one year top surgery anniversary, first time out in the sun at the beach 😊 Top surgery date: 2|5|13 Ignore my bald spot... I know I shaved that on accident πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #austin #goodvibes #transsexual #ftm #trans #transgender #transisbeautiful #atx #femaletomale #guyswithtattoos #selfmade #htr #vitamint #transandproud #tattoos #lgbtq #transguy #transtion #transmenofig #topsurgery #topsurgeryanniversary #drraphael #teamraphael #planotx #peterraphael #california #cali #ca #beach

Today as I try to battle the anxiety of giving myself my 153rd shot of testosterone, I look at myself in the mirror and try and remember that if it wasn’t for this magical hormone I wouldn’t be as happy with the way I look and feel as I am today. I remember battling eating disorder after cardio addiction to loose any curve on my body to appear more β€œmanly”. It doesn’t have to be that hard and torturous. It’s just a shot, once a week, for the rest of my life. I can do this πŸ’ͺ #thisiswhattranslookslike #transgender #trans #topsurgery #peterraphael #drraphael #teamraphael #transisbeautiful #shotday #tshot #testosterone #intramuscular #muscle #fitness #hormonereplacementtherapy #hrt

Edit: I’m on vacation and thought it was Tuesday but it’s Monday lol: #transformationtuesday left: 1 week post op, right: almost 2 years post op. β€’ A little glimmer of goodness after the memo sent out regarding trans people yesterday... when I walked around @aclfestival a couple weekends ago shirtless and scars out, I had several strangers approach me and tell me how much they supported me, that I was seen and loved. Little moments like that are a reminder that people can be kind and there is hope 🌈 β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #trans #transgender #ftm #femaletomale #transandproud #queer #lgbtq #prettyboy #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful #transsexual #transition #vitamint #selfmade #transmodel #guyswithtattoos #transmenofig #hrt #transman #transguy #itgetsbetter #topsurgery #drraphael #peterraphael #teamraphael

Read through the entirety of @andrewgibby’s β€œtake me with you” last night β€” which is excerpts from their other poems in a convenient pocket-sized book, accompanied by illustrations. I love this idea that I can take doses of their art, wisdom, and encouragement in my bag wherever I go. Thank you for all that you do, your words are inspiration, your words are a lifeline.

Every person is in transition around you, in some capacity. Sure, some of us from one gender to another, but who isn’t on the path from one place to the next, on a journey from one identity to another, going from one moment to the following? We are all moving, changing, evolving, growing, and becoming.

#throwbackthursday left I was the tiniest I’ve ever been as an adult, age 18 barely 120lbs, confused, unhealthy, full of destructive habits and a lot of self hate. On the right I’m 25, coming up on 3 years on T, 1 year post op, 155 lbs (probably the heaviest I’ve ever been but also healthier than ever), working on my body and the relationship I have with it every day. πŸ™Œ

A different kind of #transformationtuesday today to show the progression this chest of mine has made. Far left is the biggest I remember my chest ever being, I’m 19 and pre-t in that photo. Middle is age 24, the day before top surgery (January 3rd 2017), 1 year and 10 months on Tβ€” I was pretty small chested when I started T but this is pretty close to the smallest I ever got my pre-op chest to be (courtesy of lots of working out and testosterone). Far right is current (late October 2017), 2 years and 8 months on T, almost 10 months post op. It’s wild to see how many forms this body of mine has taken, this journey is pretty amazing.

Day four of recovery. Feeling better slowly. Have a couch which stinks but just resting. There is itching which is a good sign. Def a huge thank you to my wife @ohsweetwhit for taking care of me and handling my needy butt! Couldn't have done this with out you babe.

Day 1 vs Day 848 on testosterone. Sometimes I think I haven't changed at all, I can't see the progress as it happens day to day, and I get frustrated thinking I'll never get where I wanna be -- then I put two pictures like this together and am amazed at the strides I've made and the growth I've experienced. What a journey. 🌟 #transformationtuesday at Austin, Texas

Scars are just scars. They don't define us, they're reminders that we have survived, that we bleed and heal, and they can be beautiful, but we are so much more than our scars.

#flashbackfriday look back to remember where you've come from, and look forward as a reminder of where you're still headed. This life is a journey, enjoy the process, cherish the memories, be thankful for your progress and never stop pushing. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ #ftm #trans #transgender #femaletomale #transguy #transman #guyswithtattoos #prettyboy #queer #lgbtq #topsurgery #thisiswhattranslookslike #transisbeautiful #selfmade #testosterone #vitamint #transition #doubleincision #drraphael #peterraphael #teamraphael #transandshirtless #postop #transformation #comparison
