Pride Month: A letter to myself

12 June 2023

To celebrate Pride Month, we asked USTA alum Roland Bailey to talk about his experience as a trans man living in Austria. Roland's contribution has taken the form of a letter written to a past version of himself in which he reflects on the last couple of years.

By Roland Bailey

1. Don’t beat yourself up for not figuring it out sooner.

2. Anyone you give two shits about loves you.

3. Vienna is a pretty great place to be trans in, all things considered.

4. Embrace becoming just some guy.

5. Don’t get involved with him.

6. Be prepared for the rage.

7. It all gets easier.
