    I had let on to my best frind at the time and his wife and she seemed more responsive than he did obviously. Turns out they both were lying about accepting it. I told my wife one night by asking her to teach me about doing my makeup. We talked, I told her I had been feeling this...

    I told my boyfriend that I'm FtM after I found out he cross dresses (this was before we started dating).  After we got to know each other, we started dating, and now I'm going to be moving closer to him so we can develop our relationship further.  Yay!

    After many years of struggling with my gender

    identity I told both my wife and eldest son that I'm TG today. They have both been amazingly supportive of the news and I couldn't be happier at the moment. I'm going to make an appointment to see my doctor as soon as possible

    I have been "in the closet" for many years and through EP and therapists, I have finally gathered the courage and knowledge to face what I am. This has given me the courage to tell my family, children and siblings. While I sometimes feel that my life has been a lie, also I think...

    I told my mom I'm a transguy a while ago and it didn't go as well as I'd hoped. She was furious with me for about a week and told me that I might as well be dead if I transition. She is now in the deepest denial I have ever seen her in. Just today we were talking about how some...

    As far back as I can remember, I've always felt very much like a woman. It took me years to accept who I am and all that time I hid my true feelings out of fear that the teasing I was getting would turn to physical violence, especially since I live in a small, backwoods southern...
