A transman creates timepieces with an eye on style and substance.

Just 27 years old, Samuel J. Rosenmayer is a recently transitioned transman and watchmaker. Bullied for most of his childhood for not being a “typical” girl, Rosenmayer felt extremely out of place during adolescence and was instructed by Christian therapists to constantly suppress his LGBT urges and identity. “As a result, I now have a linked struggle: removing the lies I grew up believing and replacing them with the truth of how God loves me and created me to be who I am—for a reason”, he says.

About Curve

As we greet a new season we also embrace new possibilities of expression. I was thrilled to welcome to our cover the beautiful Nafessa Williams, star of the CW show Black Lightning. 2018 is the year of the black superhero, and Williams is a breakout star, playing TV’s first black lesbian superhero. Season 1 was an overnight success, premiering as the network’s #1 new series. That’s great news for anyone who ever wondered if their authentic self would find representation and acceptance in the mainstream. We also take an in-depth look at the November midterm elections and the potential “Rainbow Wave” of out LGBT candidates. More diverse women than ever before are entering the political field hoping to enact necessary change, and that’s something worth celebrating. Enjoy our story on the Indigo Girls, who are trying something new musically, and meet other women from coast to coast who are pursuing their selfhood in the most delightful and inspiring ways. Hats off to Esther Newton and Casey Legler whose lifelong journeys made me proud to call this community my home.
