We’ve been taking a little breather from posting on the blog this season while we focused on events, but we’ve been secretly working hard on it behind the scenes!
We’re excited to share some fun stuff we’ve been working on soon, but until then...Have you seen our feature on an unorthodox Vancouver based couple, Chandler and Lena?
We're getting into the #transgender relationship experience, recovering from divorce, incorporating instinct and growth and knowing pure love.
We had a great time chatting with them while they went about their day-off-morning-routine.
Getting scrumpets and coffee at Granville Island, a stop at the dog beach (and laughing about our crazy dogs) and getting to know their story.
Here's an excerpt: "RP: So, how would you say transition has affected your relationship?
C: I can be more myself, I guess. Any relationship I've been in, in the past, I wasn't really myself, you know? I never really knew how to love myself. The transition has really allowed me physically, with my body, open up in a relationship and also emotionally. I feel like I was really emotionally stunted in prior relationships, friendships and romance, and now I can be me and have no barriers.
RP: How did it affect you Lena?
L: It doesn't. I think the only times the transition comes up is on Tuesdays when your super space-y after your T-Shot [Testosterone Shot]. [laughs] It has had a positive effect, to be this close and get a first had experience of seeing someone blossom into who they are, it's very inspiring and it's great to watch him come into his own and stand up for himself where he needs to. You know? Spread his chest proudly. It makes me appreciate life a lot more, spending it next to him."
—How amazing is that?
Visit the blog to peep the whole article, it's definitely worth the read.
