I Am A Transgender Person

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,305 People

    So I recently came out to my partner (they are

    nonbinary) as trans. I figured that, then being trans too and all, they'd be very receptive and supportive, which is outwardly true. But a few days later they kept saying how hard it was for them to accept this, and how hard change is for them, and basically it boiled down to my...

    Given that it was my birthday 2 days ago,

    and I have my first GIC appointment in 5 days, is it possible for this to be my last birthday as a man? I ask this because I really hope to be a legal woman by my 21st, so I can truly start my life.

    comfortable thing to do. It wasn't what I wanted, but it was a order from the army. Feeling overwhelmingly depressed. If I do not shut off my emotions now they are going to drive me to commit suicide. Singapore is such a bad place to openly be yourself. Being in the army is...

    I realized that I was trans in March.

    I'm lucky enough to go to a very progressive school in NYC, and our Queer Discussions group (a GSA or so) went to a conference in Connecticut. I'd known I wanted a penis, and that I would much rather be a boy for as long as I can remember. I thought they were normal "girl...
