    I came out to my step dad this morning.

    While he admits being out of his element, he told me how touched he is I trust him enough to tell him. How proud he is of me for figuring out who I am because it takes courage to look inside and find yourself whether it's gender exploration or other personal exploration. He has...

    For those who don't seem to realize,

    being born female biologically but identifying as male is still being transgender. There is not only one way to be trans. I really don't understand why people are telling me I'm not trans.

    So I am on day 11 of wearing nothing

    but women's clothes. Even though no one knows I am wearing women's clothes, as clothing is very gender neutral looking, It still has me feeling so wonderful, better than I ever have. But I am very fearful of how my wife will feel, not as good as I do needless to say!!

    I am a boy becoming girl.

    In my case I was sexually abused as a little boy. I learnt about the adult penis aged 8. I kept it quiet for 50 years. I was afraid of men all my life. Then I had to say. You may want to know why I had to say. But I won't dwell on it now. But I know I don't want to be male and...

    as transgender for the first time, to someone other than my wife, therapist, or other professional. If was actually a friend. An old friend from where we used to live. Also it was a guy which was really hard for me as I don't like men I don't trust them( yes lots of baggage...

    I started watching a show on Amazon called

    "Transparent" There was a really great line which something's up very well at least for me. Ex-wife "does this mean you're going to dress up like a woman all the time" Transgender woman " no until now I've been dressing up as a man my whole life" Lines may not be exactly...

    Sometimes it's hard for me to remember

    that a lot of people don't consider being trans as good news. When I realized I was actually male I found a new sense of confidence and self worth that I just didn't have before. How is that any kind of bad? Why does it have to be negative to realize who you are and take steps...

    I used to be transgender

    when I was in my teens. Some years ago, I started going through surgeries and procedures, including gender reassignment, to become a girl. And ever since, I feel more alive. ♥

    so well. I haven't posted in a while because my mom removed EP and other apps from my phone, because she doesn't want me to 'be influenced by those kinds of people'. I guessed the passcode right after about 15 attempts, and have now hidden this app on my phone. I'm feeling lost...

    For the longest time, I have been confused about who and what I am. I have tried fitting into so many molds and tried so many different things, all to no avail, but after what felt like a lifetime, I finally know myself. I am Brooke. I was born biologically a boy, but mentally...

    I came out to one of my closest friends

    that actually goes to school with me and she actually took it really good, she's supportive of LGBT rights and I'm glad she accepts me for who I really am. Even though I still have to wait to buy girls clothes I hope we can come to an agreement and she can lend me some clothes!

    because I felt a natural attraction towards girls, but at the same time I myself was not feeling like a girl, if that makes any sense. When I finally did have the courage to tell my parents I was a lez, they weren't happy, and my mom would tell me to still dress like a girl and...

    Is it worth it to tell your parents your trans

    even if you know they wont accept you? Or is it just better to wait until you have your own place?

    for a while now, to no avail. So, when asked what I consider to be the worst thing about being transgender, and if I'm being serious, I tend to reply that, for me, it i my inability to produce offspring, and that it occasionally stings me to see mothers in public. This...

    There was a bit of confusion with myself about whether I am bigender between male and femandrogyne or simply a femandrogynous male. I am sometimes mixed up between what I feel like and what I act like, but I think I’ve figured it out… possibly. Although my dysphoria towards...
