Kathy's Favorite Photo (of Kathy!)

Hallo Stana,

At first I'd like to thank you for your blog. It's so inspiring and motivational for  I guess  a lot of people (including me).

My real name is Karsten (I haven't really decided on a "real" feminine name  online I mostly go by Kathy so that's fine :D ). I come from Germany.

Always in my life I knew I was different. I also accepted that in a way, but I thought I could just live out those desires in private, for myself. I also have gone out en femme for a couple of years. But I never told anyone except my last girlfriend. She seemed OK at first, but I was still uncertain with my situation, so we eventually broke up.

Anyway, I still tried to keep things private, but in the recent months the pressure was getting worse and I finally decided to seek help. I outed myself to my sister, which was super positive and is now my biggest supporter (love u sis!). We still didn't tell our parents, but will eventually at the end of the year (so I can have the new year as the start of my long journey).

I also recently started to take pictures of me (something that I before avoided), but I never really was satisfied with it until That picture!

It feels like for the very first time, I really caught a glimpse of the beauty that is inside of me. I even started to cry a little when I first saw it on my computer screen :')

That picture moved something in me. I guess for the first time I realized who I really was. I am that girl! I will become that girl inside and outside. I will fight for being that girl  for being me.

It will be a long journey  but I'm finally on my way.

Wish you all the best in the world!

Love Kathy

Boys are girls in Brazil, too.


  1. I wish you would live a happy life along the way. Sometimes people don't cooperate, but your confidence is really appreciable. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for sharing your story, Kathy. And by the way, I think that your femme name suits you well.
    Stana - Do you have any info about where the "Boys are girls in Brazil too" picture came from?
    Happy New year from Davina (in Brazil)

    1. I think it is "Homo Sapiens" night club, a famous house of São Paulo in the Seventies...
