In this brief essay, the author explores what it has been like to transition as a transmasculine person in Chiapas, México, with all its contradictions and complexities. The author contends what it can mean to decolonize masculinity and what his role as a transmasculine and transfeminist person has been in an almost exclusively bio-woman feminist space. What does trans presence mean in fiercely antitrans spaces? What can the power of Audre Lorde's erotic do in transforming feminist communities toward transfeminist power?
