As I stare at his picture, I see a very handsome, fair-skinned man with a red beard, sporting a black baseball cap with a fish hook decorating the bill. Intently, he stares into the blue skies as though he’s studying the beauty all around him. Looking at this picture, I would have never known that only a few years ago, Matt went by the name of… Melanie. For a second, try to imagine being assigned a female body that didn’t match your inner male being. Now, imagine feeling this way and growing up in a small town in Texas, born into a conservative family, where religion played a big role in your life. These struggles were his reality. Slowly, he found outlets and along the way, finally found himself.  Having to overcome a lot of adversity and a battle with mental health, his triumph will leave you a fan of his lovely soul for life.  So, as we test the waters with Skype, we sit, headphones in/on our ears, both our laptops between us… this is his story.
