Transgender Teenage Couple Transition Together (via The Huffington Post)

A pair of teenagers from Oklahoma might seem like your typical young couple, but their love story is unlike many others. The transgender couple actually transitioned together.

Just two years ago, Arin Andrews and Katie Hill hadn’t transitioned yet. The two had struggled with their identities throughout childhood; Hill had struggled with bullying. Then one day they met at a trans support group, after each had begun the transitioning process, and they fell in love.

Found this ridiculously sweet story today and wanted to share it with my followers.

SCREAMS LOUD ENOUGH TO BREAK WINDOWS

I am super surprised that this story blew up on Facebook.

i think this was the first time i ever saw trans people being happy, fulfilled and in love. 

the context indeed was a sensationalist omg-u-cant-guess-their-biggest-secret facebook bullshit, but it stayed with me as something eye-opening and frankly shocking. i was so deep in the closet it was laughable back then.

seeing this again struck a chord id forgotten it existed
