I´m Rowan. In my day-to-day life, I combine the struggles of being transgender (FTM) with my passion of flying, little felines, and writing.
When I came out of the closet in 2015, after a long while of questioning myself, I never expected my life to change as much as it has. Although there are still obstacles to be overcome, I am gradually becoming myself – commanding the cockpit and heading for the endless possibilities that still await beyond the horizon.
In just one short year, transition has proven to be yet another indicator of my strength and my resilience. It has taught me to speak up, to fight for the things that are close to my heart, and not to take “no” for an answer. It has mirrored most of the toxic issues that I dealt with in my childhood, and given me a chance to redefine those.
Rather than keeping these experiences for myself, I´ve found it helpful to roam around on WordPress, read adventures written by others, and in return write about my own experiences, heartaches and victories. The keyboard and screen have proven helpful in translating my chaotic thoughts into somewhat comprehensible chunks of text.
I hope you will have a blast reading some of the topics I´ve written about, such as transitioning, transgender healthcare, mental health, relationships, (a)sexuality and non-monogamy. With you as my readers and a source of inspiration, I expect coming up with future material will be as helpful for me as it will be for the visitors of my blog.
If you have any questions for me as an author, or would just like to participate actively in a discussion about the things I write, don´t hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below any of my posts.
Until then, have a good time on Androgendernaut.
See you around!
