"Hi, I'm the guy on the right in this picture. Some of you might notice there's not really anything dangling between my legs. The simple explanation to this is that I'm trans - I was designated female at birth, but my gender has always been male. When I was old enough to do something about it, I did. This included taking testosterone, aka "T". T is powerful - it changes your voice, your hairline and jawline, increases your body hair, and even redistributes body fat. What it doesn't do is help you grow a full size penis. I've found, to me at least, that's really just not relevant to my every day life. What is relevant is how at home I feel in my body now, how much easier it is to look in the mirror and be happy with what I see, how I've learned to accept and even love my body now in a way I never could before. My manhood isn't defined by what's between my legs, but how I live my life."

From the Photographer:
Each year I photograph fat people with their partners for The Adipositivity Project's Valentine Series. 'Cause ain't love grand? Some of these images are a bit more NSFW than the standard fare here, so be warned. To purchase this and other Adipositivity prints, go to http://theadipositivityproject.zenfolio.com/prints
