Kelly Denithorne is an educator, transgender advocate, and the blogger behind “Unordinary Style.” Kelly started her blog in 2010, and began it as a place to explore with her love of style while she was exploring women’s fashion. Born as a male, Kelly tried on several different titles for herself, from transvestite, to cross dresser, and then to transgender non-binary. In the last year, Kelly has begun teaching in her middle school as a woman, and has started the process of transitioning.

In this episode, Kelly Denithorne and I talk about:

  • Her earliest sparks of joy, hanging out with her sister
  • Her experience of growing up as a male, and the confusion that she experienced around having unidentified gender variance
  • Being a teacher, and transitioning from dressing as a male to dressing female this school year
  • Seeking therapy with someone who specializes in gender variance
  • The reactions of her students and parents to her presenting as a woman
  • Her path to discovering her true self
  • The role being a fashion blogger played in her journey
  • Her inspiration in starting to take on speaking opportunities
  • How to jumpstart your joy: learn to accept who you are and how you work with it, sharing your story, and always be humble enough to learn
