The Unicorn, for transwomen, is a man who loves them genuinely, openly and deeply as the person they are. Like the fantasy animal these men rare. An illusion. Do they even exist? We not only think they exist, they are easy to find when you get your story straight.
What makes Jaycee so freaking awesome? We think we know. So will you when you listen to our funny romp across her daily life, her recent romantic experiences, what she wants to be when she grows up and how the powers that be are helping make that happen. It gets real in this episode as the sordid details come-a-flying.
Last week we posted a blog post about the future that is coming where Transamorous Men would stand up, come out, own what they are and, as a result shift society from their own powerful point of desire (desire is what makes reality). This shift would radically transform society in much the same way transpeople radically transform themselves to align what they are physically, with what they know themselves to be.
Of course, Transamorous Men are everywhere. And they are good, kind, upstanding, men of all economic backgrounds and ethnicities. If you’re not meeting one, you’re looking in the wrong places.
In that prior post we said “we will be eager to see the day when..” Transamorous Men take their place in mainstream life, showing that loving transpeople is as normal as breathing. That’s powerful desire. We actually wrote that post before we launched The Transamorous Network (we had written 25 posts in advance). Here’s what’s happened since we scheduled the post to go live.
We launched this website and immediately began getting readers and comments about the content, about how much potential there was for the Network.
We spoke of launching the podcast, which then manifested Remy, and then Shannon in an effortless way. No searching, no struggle, they showed up and it’s a perfect match of personalities. We’re still smiling with every episode we produce. Our co-hosts are amazing.
Then, we met a man who was interested in being on the show, but for all the wrong reasons. We had him on the show, but the Skype connection was so bad, we couldn’t do the show. Thank goodness! We didn’t let that deter us. We knew he was an indicator of something better on the way!
We’ve had six or so lovely interviews with Transwomen, all of these women have thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the show. We enjoyed them too!
Meanwhile, we’ve been reaching out to the transcommunity, letting them know about the show on YouTube, Craigslist, and OKCupid.
As all this momentum has increased, it was not surprising then that we would meet Micah. You’re going to hear about Micah shortly. Micah is an unassuming man. He’s an executive chef from Hawaii who grew up Mormon and now lives in Spokane, Washington. We’re not going to ruin the show for you, but what’s interesting about Micah is he is out and proud about his eight-year relationship with his transpartner.
We’re looking forward to having Micah on the show. We think our audience is going to love him. We already do. That’s because he represents to us our desires being fulfilled. As we knew it would.
In my earlier post, I defined Transamory, a word coined by “Piper”. In writing that piece, I came across a shortened version: TransAm. I’m gonna get it for riffing off the Pontiac brand. But there you go. Fuck, I’d love to steal that Phoenix-rising motif. It’s bitchin’.
And kind of like that bird, we Transamorous guys are emerging from the cesspool that is social criticism, ostracism and shrinking before social claims that our love is taboo, to claim that part of our identity making us uniquely us….among other things.
So get over it. I’m trans-am.
Just checked to see if someone has TransAm.com already. Of course, they do. Bummer.

So I’m sitting here thinking about all the directions I can take this blog. Yesterday, out with my wife, I was thinking about it too. Seems to me the area that may be best is focusing on facilitating positive relationships between transpeople and cis-people, primarily cis-men and transwomen, but including other combinations.
I’m liking that approach. As a cis-guy who has had extensive experience dating transwomen, I have a thing or two to share with transamorous men that I learned listening to these women bitch about us. And, I have some ideas on how men like me can easily and quickly find happiness – joy even – in our search for the perfect transgender partner.
I also know from sharing my thoughts with transgender people I know that what I have to offer can also HUGELY benefit transwomen. One transwoman who reviewed what I will be offering on this site said she benefitted tremendously from reading it. Her life has transformed. Great things are happening for her all the time now. I’ll write more about that later.
I intend The Transamorous Network to offer something for families with transgender members in them and transgender women and men as well. I consider this my contribution to the community. You may not agree with my feeling on this, but the transcommunity, broadly speaking, includes people who aren’t trans.
I can’t provide everything to everyone immediately. I gotta start somewhere. Sooner than later though, I’ll include information for more than just guys who are romantically attracted to transwomen, and transwomen who know guys like that.
For now, I’m just glad to have gotten this thing started. I’ll continue to ponder the approach for this blog and for the Network. And I’ll encourage all of you who are visiting early on to come back as I chart this journey.
