So my name is Cash Elijah Davis. But I when I was born my name was Cassidy Elizabeth Davis. My parents always knew I was different, a “tomboy” they said. But I always felt different. I remember being 8 years old trying to stand over the toilet and pee like my little brother.
I was always the only girl on the team. Until one day I hit an age where my dad told me I couldn’t play with the guys anymore bc I was going to get hurt. I always resented the fact I was different. In high school when I played softball the baseball team would workout across from us and I always wished I was on their side with their shirts off looking at themselves admiring all their muscles.
I hated being a girl. I hated hating breast almost ALWAYS thou.. Even when I came out as “lesbian” when I was 15 all my girlfriends knew I hated my breast well at least I hated how big they were. My parents were okay with me being gay. For the most part. My dad told he didn’t care if I was gay, just didn’t want me to look like a girl. Well joke was on him, because I cut all my hair off a year later and when I was 18 I started doing drag.
I LOVED doing drag. Docle’ DiArmani was my alter ego. When I finally learned what transgender was I felt like a piece of me was finally found. I knew this was the most confidence I had ever experienced before. And I haven’t that same exact way in a while. But I know once I finally have surgery I will. I am 23 years old now and I am 3 years and 4 months on Hormone Replacement Therapy.
I am the happiest I have ever been. But I have a long way to go. I work at Applebee’s as a manager and it hasn’t being easy getting where I am at now. Just being on a respect level with the people I work with and just being accepted. It’s hard living everyday with always being reminded that you are different.
Not only is cash an amazing role model, he is spreading awareness within the trans community with his clothing line.
All of the funds go towards his top surgery & we can’t wait to order ours!
