The Stranger

I am a motorcycle riding butch lesbian who awoke to the fact that being an accountant does nothing to nourish my soul.  Writing and looking at the beauty of the world through a camera lens does.  In August of 2010 I decided to walk away from my job as an accountant and live a more authentic life.  Authentic and for me.  

The transition wasn't easy but I continuously put one foot in front of the other and slowly made progress.  This blog was created to tell the story of this transition.  The story of me waking up from the ideas of what the world thinks I should do and be and becoming me.

This blog is also the story of a butch woman becoming more and more comfortable with herself and sharing that with the next generation of butch lesbians.  You are not alone.  If you need someone to talk to or just want to ask me a question or send me a comment please do not hesitate to send me an email at wendikali(at)gmail(dot)com.

I challenge gender stereotypes on a daily basis simply by existing in this world.  I have grown comfortable and almost proud of the fact that I am called 'sir' on a daily basis.  On the outside I may look like a man but under these boots, jeans and t-shirts I am all woman.  Comfortable and confident in these clothes and in this skin.  I am me.
