Here’s a few highlights from Willis’ broad-ranging interview: On transitioning during college: “I have no idea where that bravery came from. To think, that in this flagship institution in the south there’s probably about 8% black students there and the LGBTQ community is even smaller than that. All I can say is that I know finding community there…finding resources through the UGA LGBT resource center helped me, and having mentors who were open about their identities and open to helping students understand who they were.” “Being misgendered was one of the biggest offenses to me. So all of the focus that we have on passing and being able to blend in with mainstream culture, I think is a misstep.It’s really difficult when we have this idea that gender is so wrapped up in presentation, it’s so wrapped up in the aesthetic. As someone who benefits from conditional passing privilege, people refer to me as a woman and refer to me with feminine pronouns as they should.Miss Will also provides group therapy.""Kristin Will, LCSW has been in the field for over six years.

Depending on your situation, it can take months or even years to truly “get over it.” Sometimes, you never do. I thought my relationship was the one thing I was doing right in the midst of my funk and it got swept out from under me. Although I don’t know her, I experienced a surge of emotions when trans activist Janet Mock married her longtime love Aaron Treadwell. While some of us are running to the chapel to get married, there are folks picking up the pieces of another broken relationship or trying to figure out why someone has ghosted them.
When their wedding photos surfaced, Mock looked so relaxed and comfortable in her new husband’s embrace. I’ve finally dipped my toe back in the dating pool and it’s scary because it brings another set of questions.
I was extremely happy for her, but I couldn’t help but feel a pang of sadness.
