I was a guest speaker in an episode of Girlskill podcast with Anna Rova.
Some of the topics we discussed in the podcast are:
- “Living my truth became more important to me than obeying other people’s judgments about me.”
How did it feel growing up in the United Kingdom in the 60s being a boy but really feeling like a girl? How is the experience of holding a secret for more than 20 years and being afraid to “come out”? How and why did the transformation occur? How does transgender relate to sexuality? How and why one does one go through a name change? All these questions and more, Michaela Light, a “Male to Female” (or Mtf) transgender and bisexual shares with us on this episode.
- “But… you go back to 200 years in Europe, the men were all wearing face powder, high heels, and wigs, and some of them acted pretty feminine.”
The first time she had cross-dressed in public on her way to a meeting when her tire broke down, and she had to stop on a high… realizing that she would be now attracting men to help her out…
- “Femininity is about receptiveness; attracting versus chasing, being open to things; a gentle, loving quality to it; more beauty. We get to choose far more than men choose to do in our current society.”
Michaela is bisexual and had long-term relationships with mostly women. She was open about her transgender journey. Some girlfriends were supportive, some not so much.
She’s open to sexual experiments, talks openly about BDSM and all other kinds of subjects that are considered “tabu” in certain situations.
- “When someone is pointing at you to judge you, they have three fingers directed towards themselves. It always comes from them, not from you.”
