‘On Our Anniversary, We Signed A Contract Of Intimacy’

By Anonymous for Transmen Collective:

As a Transman, I was always attracted to women, until suddenly one day, I found myself being attracted to Transmasculine person.

For me, it was a moment of confusion. I started questioning myself, my sexual orientation and my gender identity.

In a conventional sense, I am a man, so I must be attracted to women. But I couldn’t help being attracted to this person. I knew that gender identity and sexual orientation were different things but I still found it difficult to accept this attraction. However, after a long thought, I accepted myself as bisexual.

Now I am in a relationship with that person. We share our happiness and sorrow with each other. We enjoying kissing, living together, going on dates, going to protests and meetings, having long political discussions, and doing household work together. We have fights, laugh like crazy, and so much more.

On our anniversary we signed a contract of intimacy.

Now it’s been almost two years, and I am very happy with my partner.

And I am proud to be Bisexual Trans Man.
