Barnum and Bailey.

Blows my mind how

On the internet

There are soooo many

Perfectly gorgeous trans people

And in real life

There are lots of

Angry, sad, fat, sick

Happy, glad, mad, queer

Pregnant, barren, botched

Beautiful people who’ve all had

A diversity of experiences on

Different prescriptions of hormones and

A wide variety of medical services

And yet

Overwhelmingly, what we see

Is a curated group

That the “higher ups” (cis folk?) decided

Were “positive trans representation”

Because, I guess, you know–

Nobody wants to see the

Half-and-half freaks

That aren’t instagrammable.

That shit died with

Barnum and Bailey.
