I have been sick most of the week. Rather than a nice extended vacation after my Vegas trip, I have been taking care of both of my kids and myself and sleeping as much as I can (all of us got sick). I also had to take my car in for emergency repairs yesterday. I had a brake hose fail and a stuck caliper which was locking up my front brakes that I had just paid to replace before my vacation šŸ˜„. The front left side brake pads completely melted! At least that part was under warranty but it still cost a ton to fix the rest. All together.. this has been a sucky week! I wish I could go back to the moment depicted in this photo. I was at a table at the Rock House surrounded by friends and celebrating 3 birthdays (one of which was my own). Regardless, I am finally feeling a little better and it is summer here finally. Time to pick myself up and start enjoying everything the Chicago area and its suburbs has during the summer! #clubwear #clubbing #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbt #happypridemonth #happypride #TransIsBeautiful #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

Ah bikini, bikini, bikini! I want to go back to last week! I’m at home sick. Just after flying home Monday, I was exposed to a nose and throat infection that is going around and my weakened immune system after traveling was beaten by it šŸ˜„ I should be getting a prescription later today to battle it. There are pool parties to attend! There is streaming to do! I am still on vacation from work, this is not how I am supposed to spend it šŸ˜£ #vegasimissyou #transvengers #cantkeepthisgirldown #girlslikeus #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #lgbt #pridemonth #happypridemonth #happypride #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana

I have noticed in some comments and even mentions in posts on Insta from other people that there may be questions as to how we all were included in this trip. Let’s talk about how this group formed and what the transvengers hashtag that Mika made so popular is all about.Ā 
We’re like any otherĀ group of friends that came together organically. I can only tell you from my perspective as to how the group unfolded. I interacted with @suddenlysamantha and @mikaelavilleĀ first.Ā We connected over the fact that we three are #transparents. In a very shortĀ time, we were offering support to one another and also just chatted about things friends chat about. Sam and IĀ became Facebook friends and eventually she also asked to interview me on one of her Instagram Live sessions.Ā Mika and I conversed mostly through Instagram but then were also texting andĀ joking around with each other a lot on other media. Mika often would stop by on my twitch streams and harass me and try to make me blush on camerašŸ˜Š The other instagrammersĀ in the group (@thecaseyblake andĀ @itsemily247) became friends with either Mika or Sam and again over time got to know each other enough to want to get together.Ā We’re not some exclusive club that was invited to Vegas based on some sort of ranking. We are a group of friends that found connections and support and those connections spilled into further connections until we all now consider each other friends. How else do you think we were comfortable sharing hotel rooms with each other? I for one do not share hotel rooms with strangers. My point is, we became long distance friends over time and wanted to meet each other & the results were great. I consider all of these amazing women close friends now and they know I’ve got their back and I know I can count on them.Ā 
I encourage all of you to start your own groups and once you feel comfortableĀ  and want to meet face to face in some city anywhere on the globe, set it up! Mika has said many times that theĀ #transvengers hashtag is for all trans people, not just transwomen. Have a gathering! Use the hastag for your posts! This is not an exclusive club! Love you all! Transvengers Assemble! #whosnext #transvengersassemble
