    Coming out can be a difficult process.

    I worried about how other people will react and how they'll treat me when I started to live openly as a woman. The first stage of coming my coming out was acknowledging to myself how I feel about my gender. And this hasn't always been straightforward. For most of my life 50...

    I’m taking liberty in saying that

    for some trans women, getting a vagina is like climbing Mt. Everest. It can be a long, grueling, and expensive climb to the top, but in the end you feel like you can conquer the world. Others know they can climb if they want, but choose not to. Still others unfortunately can’t...

    Why is it so hard to come out?

    Why can't I just say the words to my family "I'm a woman and always have been."? Why do I even have to? It shouldn't be like that. A cisgendered person doesn't have to come out and say they're cis. So why should I have to say I'm trans? I wish I could just walk through my Dad's...

    since I've posted on here. So I figured I would give an update. Back in February I had my first visit with a gender therapist. She's great! I had contacted her a few times by email before I went to see her. She was so supportive and caring, that I knew she would be good for me...

    It Started When I Was 5

    My journey started when I was 5.  Most of the time I was always hanging out with what I thought was girl friends.  It took a turn for the dark side when I was abused by a guy that told me that I was a girl.  I even had a teen aged girl help me dress up for him...

    So I Am A Girl Now.....so What? ......a Question Recently Asked

    Recently, I was asked this question....How did it feel to be growing up with a boy's body and feeling like you were a girl? It is a good question. The easiest answer is to say MISERABLE! But, there is a lot more to it than just feeling miserable. Since, I have felt for a long...

    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...

    On Day One it was deigned

    that I was transgender. A mistake was made in the hospital's nursery and I was put in a bassinette with pink bows on it and the name card introduced "Baby Girl . . .". And by some "act of God"(?) the nurse wrote my name as Joanne. I know it sounds bizarre but that's how it all...

    It's been a while. I've upped my daily estrogen a bit and that seems to be moving things along better. I'm starting to finally get a bit of a butt. It's a little harder to tug the jeans over it, but when they are snugged up nicely my *** looks better. I'm seeing some growth...
