Just in case you found this post accidentally, or opened it because the title seemed a little shocking – wait. Don’t go.
I want you to meet someone. Please meet Dianne Nicole Joy. She is a transgender boy-to-girl doll with a very pensive expression and a [true] story to tell.
At the time, I had discovered that someone very close to me is transgender.
It is difficult for me to share this with you. Dianne Nicole Joy doesn’t follow my blog, and I hope that she doesn’t know I wrote this. It’s not that I’m hiding, or doing anything wrong. I think she is a beautiful person and I can only just begin to imagine what he is going through inside every single day. I just need my outlet. I need to share this with creative people like you.
‘Transgender’ is something that society has only began admitting in recent years. I am not sure if I am as accepting because of society today or because someone I love is “trans.” It may very well be my own first-hand experience. Ten years ago I would have thought it was ridiculous, and today I see how real and how serious it is. I only know one transgender person, and so I can only talk about this one experience. I am glad I have my art. I believe that dolls take on the feelings of the artist, and here is living proof.
Thank you for reading, and thank you for letting me share. Please leave a comment if you can find the time.
Have a dollightful day!
