    Who We Were Isn’t Who We Are!

    One of the hardest things about being transgender is leaving who we were behind in order to live as who we are. It’s uncomfortable. It’s scary. It’s unknown. We have lived for years as someone people have come to know. We are expected to behave in a way that matches up...

    Who Am I!

    I do not take transgender tests any longer to find out whether I am or not transgender, or even what a phase of feminine I am. I have taken the Cogaiti (Combined Gender Identity And Transsexuality Inventory) on several occassions over the years and since the first time over 15...

    Having My Friends to See the Woman Inside.

    The most important part of my transition is growing more comfortable with living internally as a woman; as the years roll by, I feel female when I think about myself and the world around me. It disturbed me for how long I instinctively addressed myself by a male name in my...

    A story I shared with my Therapist at last

    week's session. It was during last week's session with her and we sat facing each other in her office and she asked me this question. "Have you ever regretted being a male...when you look back are there any regrets?" I told her "no, I never had any regrets presenting male." I...

    What My Transition Means To Me

    For me it is the journey that I've taken to where I've reawakened and discovered who I'm about and how I will handle things in my future. My transition is not all about the process of just my changing genders or taking the final step toward (SRS) my having corrective surgery...

    Alright, I figured this would be an appropriate

    thing to post on here. But it’s just a few basics of how to treat transgender people. Do: 1) Try not to make a big deal out of it. This is a generally good rule. If you find out someone’s trans, shrug and move on. If you slip up with someone’s pronouns, do what you...

    I think it's an apt description of me,

    there are so many questions I have about it though and so many things I am just uncertain of. I can't even come to a consensus on if I even want it. The feeling of wanting to be a girl is so fleeting it never stays, but it never goes away. When it does come it's an overwhelming...
