    My Story Briefly

    I grew up in a fairly normal childhood. I had two parents who loved me. Ever since I was little I loved to dress up as a girl. I would wear my mother's clothing any time I could. I just liked looking and acting like a girl. I secretly wished I could be a girl, but I never...

    I Am

    My being transsexual was never often questioned. I knew it. My father knew it. My mother should know it, just as well as he did, but she still doesn't accept it. Others have been told, at different times in my life. Many try to convince me that I'm not, that I just see myself...

    Am I Too Old?

    I’ve been asking myself, am I too old to transition?  I think it’s a fair and honest question.  There are certain realities to which I must admit.  First, I am sixty-one years old.  I don’t feel it and I hope I don’t look it.  I know I don’t act it.  I take care...
