    I started living openly female everywhere early

    in 2010. In mid-2013 I began the long complex process of legally changing my identity to a new name and gender. I chose the name Trisha Marie Roberts. I lost a great deal of weight with a much healthier diet, and began more regular exercise habits. I suddenly had a profound...

    I came out to my mom

    who then told my dad. This has happened in 24 hours. My mom told me, yeah we're upset but we support you. Now I'm told "you know we don't like this or condemn it". Oh awesome. I thought maybe id be accepted.

    I did it. As a 15 year old MtF this is possibly

    the scariest thing I've done but I came out to my parents. I could never do it via word of mouth so I wrote a note explaining everything and left it on the counter before I went upstairs. Tomorrow morning they'll read it and finally know everything. I hope all goes well.

    Transgender Is Not A Favorite Word

    I joined this group to meet other people with a similar background.  I almost didn't join it.  To me the word "transgender" is too wide.  It covers everyone from the panty fetishist to post-op, stealth, woman born transsexual.  I am not judging anyone, just...
