It’s been two weeks since I started testosterone. Three days after my first shot, San Francisco hosted its first annual Mr. Transman SF. It was a not-so-subtle reminder of how lucky I am to be starting my transition in a city like San Francisco, on a day like this one; my city is accepting me with open arms. This past September, Anthem Blue Cross of California released its first transgender health plan benefits. Things are changing in California. I know how lucky I am.
