I made the Spanish news again. I was on TV the other night and yesterday I found 4 newspapers with my picture. I attended a queer rally, that is supposedly international, though I have never heard of it happening in the US. It was the international day to fight homophobia and transphobia. We read for a manifesto, on TV, and in Spanish! It was a little nervous-making knowing that I just came out in Spain on TV and in the newspapers. No one there knew about my gendered history and everyone just assumed I was a gay man, which was interesting, but I wasn´t about to fully come out in a language I am still struggling with.
It was a really good time and afterwards the owners of the local queer bar bought me a drink and fed me some good food. The two owners kissed my cheeks and I gave them carnations. It was good to feel included in this small community that they have built here.
My mom is coming in a week. I am trying to plan out our trip. I´m thinking Almeria or Cadiz for four days and then back up to Barcelona. It is hard to believe all of this trip is coming to an end soon. So much to do, so much to do.
