For a month I have been secretly waiting to buy the follow up issue of Marie Claire. I was hoping for a little corner comment in the magazine’s ‘In our inbox’ section. I am in luck. A paragraph of the current issue, on page 54, is titled ‘A subject we should think about’, and it reads;
‘I hope your feature on transgender relationships open’s peoples eyes on the subject. I am friends with a transgender couple and they are the same as any other. Why can’t people grasp that some couples are just happier this way.’
I feel a knot in my chest, and a lump in my throat, I think they call pride. I think also perhaps a side dish of honor.
I thank Nicci here for her support and love, full stop, but also that she is so willing to share her a part of herself in order that others can learn.
You are an amazing partner baby.
