The Transition and the Journey

  See the picture above? That picture depicts a happy transwoman. I haven't always been this happy.
Why? Mainly because I felt that I was trapped in the wrong body. Trapped in an evil costume that caused me to act and be something that I knew I wasn't. This is called "Gender Dysphoria."
As I progress in my transition, I am proud to say that I am now enrolled into therapy to go further in my transition, mentally process things, and deal with the emotional trials that may come my way.  I must say that therapy is much needed.
 During my time away, I've become comfortable with myself and I took the time to clear other people's opinions on what Trans is supposed to look like. Trans comes in many shapes, sizes, styles, and shades.
Us trans people are often overlooked when we don't look like Laverne Cox or Even Caitlyn Jenner. But this is MY transition, MY Journey, and no one else's.  I am proud of where I am going.  With the new and improved Musique's Poetry, I will be covering this journey!!!

"Greenleaf" and the Black Church Part 2: Prostitution of the Blaqueer

  For those who have kept up with one of the two Gay Story Lines in Oprah's new show "Greenleaf"   , you know that I'm about to go the fuck OFF about the prostitution of the Blaqueer community and the bullshit we often go through in the Black Church.
  In the last couple episodes of Greenleaf a new praise and worship leader by the name of Carlton Cruise, played by actor Parnell Damone Marcano, is sought out by The Bishop's singing daughter, Charity, played by Deborah Joy Winans (yes she's Bebe and Cece's Sister). Now the shade is that Charity's husband Kevin Saterlee played by Tye White is on the Downlow but we'll hit that point later.

"Greenleaf" and the Black Church Part 1: Denial and Secrets

  Let's talk about the dynamic new show on the OWN Network, "Greenleaf." Many of you have tuned in to this riveting show that Chronicles the life of the Greenleaf and McCready Families. The drama includes sexual abuse, sexual identity, religion, homosexuality in the church, and the greed of Black Preachers aka Pimps in the pulpit.
  The show opens with the funeral of children's church teacher and minister Faith Greenleaf. The Prodigal Daughter , Grace better known as GiGi has returned home in order to avenge her sister's death.  It is revealed later in the first couple episodes that Faith was sexually abused by her Uncle Mac.  However this issue of Uncle Mac's pedophilia has been hidden and denied. This is one of many issues faced on the show.
  This got my mind to thinking as I sipped on my White Zinfandel.  Why does the Black Church shout, pray, and sing over common issues that affect the Black Community?  We all know that sexual abuse happens especially in the church.  Those in authorty often abuse their authority in order to get close and to victimize people especially those they seem more vunerable and less likely to pose a threat.
