Transgender and Physically Challenged

Being Trans and physically challenged I will share some of the joys and obstacles of being physically challenged while I am going through my journey of becoming the man I am today. I have struggled mentally and emotionally in my life I have been pushed harder because of the fact that I have a mild disability. Until I learned how to accommodate myself in order to teach others how to accommodate me.
