YIKES GUYS—I can’t believe that I turn another year older tomorrow 😧! (If you want to know how old, scroll to the bottom 🤫).

I legit have no idea how this happened. What’s funny is that I have a distinct memory of being a child and knowing that my mom was 36 at the time, and thinking to myself how I would NEVER be that old. And yet, here we are at the precipice of that impossibility 🤯.

Witnessing just how fast life moves is both humbling and scary at the same time (is there a word for this? If so pls let me know in the comments 👇🏼).

Recently, I’ve been attempting to take a step back from most things that formerly consumed a ton of my time in order to reflect and figure out what I value — and one of the things I realize I value most is connecting with other humans face-to-face.

With that said, I’ve been hard at work the past few months rethinking and tweaking my website in order to make the process of booking me a simpler and more enjoyable process 😌.

For my (36th!) birthday, pls help me celebrate by spreading the word that— like a recently hatched baby pidgeon 👶🏻🐦 — I’m ready and available for spring & summer virtual (and in-person!!) consultations and presentations, film-screenings, workshops, keynotes, & panels for your university, medical school, conference and/or company 👩🏻‍🏫.

Please click the link in my bio to inquire about booking me 🤲🏼.

(And if you didn’t know my age before reading this post, please let me know how old you thought I was in the comments below 😬⬇️ [comments will also hopefully boost this post 🙏🏼])

p.s. every time someone shares this, a baby pidgeon gets their flight feathers 🪶🐦 😇

p.s. thank you to my dear friend Shira Hassan for helping me come up with the concept for the flyer and shoutout & cadence for gifting me a new book about pigeons which I was able to reference for this baby pigeon drawing ✍️🎨😌)

Want to pass this along from my inbox. Seems like a great study to participate in for 30 minutes, and you’ll make $30 for your time and effort.

Please share!

“ Hi Pidgeon,

I hope this finds you well! I am reaching out to follow up about the Maximally Affirming Gender/Sex in Clinical Communications (MAGICC) Study, a research study that I’m conducting as part of a team at the UCSF School of Medicine.

The goal of this study is to generate best practices for communicating relevant information around gender and s*x in clinical one-liners for adult patients in a way that is efficient, precise, and affirming of all patients. A one-liner is a brief and focused summary of a patient’s identity, current condition, relevant medical history, and notable clinical findings, often used in oral and written communications among medical professionals and trainees.

In this study, we hope to center the perspectives of individuals who are transgender, non-binary, gender-expansive, and/or inters*x (TGE/I), as well as the perspectives of the clinicians involved in their care. Our team intentionally includes researchers who identify as TGE/I, and we have consulted the expertise of other TGE/I subject matter experts throughout our survey development process.

Individuals who meet the following criteria may be eligible to participate in the MAGICC Study:

Able to read and write in English
Age 18+
One or more of the following experiences:
Lived experience as a transgender, non-binary, gender-expansive, and/or inters*x (TGE/I) person
Clinical experience providing care for TGE/I patients

Individuals will be selected to receive the MAGICC Study survey after completing an eligibility screening survey to determine whether they meet the study criteria. If you are interested in participating, please fill out our online eligibility screening survey at the following link: https://ucsf.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6LG1v6oDJM3GDZ4

Individuals who are selected to participate will be asked to take a Qualtrics survey, in which they will be asked to rate a number of sample one-liners based on appropriateness for clinical communication. The estimated time commitment is about 30 minutes. All participants who complete the MAGICC Study survey will receive a $30 gift card for their time.

We would also like to ask you to share this information widely with any loved ones, friends, colleagues, and/or patients who you think may be interested in participating. If you do share this information, the UCSF Institutional Review Board (IRB) has asked to provide you with the following statement: The colleague who provides potential referrals must make every effort to present an unbiased description of the study to the prospective recruit. Potential benefits or reimbursements should not be overstated, and detailed questions about the study should be referred to the study team.”

📖 + 🎧: currently listening to The Empaths Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People and I’m learning that I have many traits of what the author describes as an empath.

Empath traits I identify with:

✅ - lower threshold for stress & stimulation

✅ - told that I was “overly sensitive”

✅ - frequently overwhelmed & anxious

✅ - tension / arguments / yelling make me ill

✅ - often feel like I don’t fit in

✅ - noise, odors, and non-stop talkers drain me

✅ - chemical sensitivities and low tolerance for scratchy clothes

✅ - startle easily

✅ - react strongly to caffeine / meds / drugs

✅ - low threshold for pain

✅ - overwhelmed by multitasking and prefer to do one thing at a time

✅ - need long time to recuperate after being with difficult people / energy vampires

✅ - afraid of becoming suffocated by intimate relationships

✅ - I absorb other peoples stress, emotions & symptoms

🐒🙋🏻Where are all my empaths at? 🙋🏻🐒

If you’re an empath, do you have suggestions for other resources? Do you have tips for coping?

⏩ What is the difference between having empathy and being an ? "Having means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain," says Dr. Judith Orloff. "But for it goes much further. We actually feel others' emotions, energy, and physical symptoms in our own bodies, without the usual defenses that most people have."

🙏🏽 Thank you Shira for the book recommendation.

i asked the director of this morning if they had any footage of Dani that they could share with me, and thankfully they did. Thank you so much Aubree for scrubbing through the footage so fast and uploading it to dropbox for me so I could make this edit.

This is footage of Miss Velvet at an *xjusticeproject *xSurgery protest at Lurie in chicago during the summer of 2017.

We lost Dani this weekend, but their legacy will live on creating ripples each passing moment.

🙏🏽 pls donate to Dani’s / ’s gofundme to help with the funeral expenses. The link to donate is a swipe up in my story. 🙏🏽

adjoa/dani/miss v - i am eternally grateful to your power, beauty, intellect, courage, compassion, vulnerability, and strength. you were one of our teachers, and now you’re one of our saints.

I wish I could go back in time and do everything I could to make sure you got that tee shirt you wanted to buy from me *bc u wanted to support tctbb* the last time we talked. i would also not let the pandemic have stopped me from shooting you for Physical Record. and most importantly, I would have made time to hang out and connect with you one on one. i wouldn’t have let my intimidation of you get in the way of us connecting on a deeper level like we talked about happening. truth is, people who are so free sometimes scare me, sometimes make me anxious and sad because in you i see my reflection, of someone who is not free but yearns to be, more clearly. 😔

i am always going to live with this regret, the regret of not getting to know you. the regret of not getting to know, if at all, how i could have been there for you.

i just watched one of your lives with two other SW’s a few weeks ago and it was revolutionary for me. i sent it to those in my life who i love and thought could also maybe benefit from your wisdom and truth telling.

you always told the truth, and i’m trying to accept that maybe this was your truth too—and find some solace in that.

i pray that your legacy, one laced with your tatted words , creates ripples in the world that make make you proud wherever you are now.

i wish i got to say all of this to you in person, instead of here and now in this way. i love you. the world was not capable of holding you while you were physically here with us, but hopefully your ripples will make it better tomorrow.

p.s. i’ll never forget running into you after that talk i did at ETHS and bewilderingly asking you if you were a HS student there. you were like “no boo, i work here.” 😆🥺

💛💜 ~ rest in power sweet 👼🏿 {inters*xy} angel 👼🏿~ 💜💛

now seems like a great time to share this inters*x flower I took a pic of last week to share the AMAZING news I just read: GERMANY JUST VOTED TO !! My love and admiration is going out to ALL the German inters*x activists who have been struggling to make this a reality for decades. I love you! 😘 🇩🇪

Clothing has no gender.

👗👞🥼👒👜

What are you excited to wear this summer?

🩱👖🧥🩳👠👓

What we wear doesn’t define our gender or s*xuality.

Your gender identity is your own. It doesn't matter if you're wear a suit or a dress, your identity is just as valid. ❤️

I learned something about anxiety last night while spiraling into sadness and anxiety. I decided to do a YouTube search for anxiety and found this really good Ted talk called “How to cope with anxiety” by Olivia Remes.

One of the main takeaways I had was that in order to help a person not live with so much anxiety, that person needs to have someone to live for, someone who they feel depends on their existence, depends on their love. That’s probably why I’ve always been obsessed with pets ever since I could string a sentence together. Pets give me a purpose, a reason to keep on keeping on.

These two right here cuddling in these photos exemplify the unique and beautiful bond humans can form with animal friends. I love these photos.

And while Jerry is definitely my son and I love every inch of his entire being, I find myself desiring a human baby. I dreamt I had one a few days ago and it felt so good to hold their chunky little self, and smell their head that smelled like fresh baby head.

I was on virtual baby shower yesterday for a friend and I was in tears at one point because I realized how bad I think I want a baby.

I think i don’t understand the purpose of living just for me.

It feels so empty. @ Los Angeles, California

inters*x ➕ trans = (necessary) solidarity
