My first landlord would tell folks moving into the building that I was a tranny.
I was confused since he didn’t live in the building how he knew my house shoes were a three inch pair of black suede heels. I would also try on an wear my downstairs neighbors Melissa’s clothes. I think the piece I’m wearing in this photo she gave to me because it looked better on me.
Decades later after much fighting with a queer friend I accepted that I was a non-binary transgender person so I guess my landlord saw something I wasn’t yet able to accept.
