Most transgender people have attempted suicide at least once in their lives. If you have, please lend your support here to those who are having a bad time now. Suicide is never the answer. If you are suicidal, call the Trans Lifeline at (877) 565-8860 in the US or (877) 330-6366 in Canada, or log in to our live chat room and ask to speak with a crisis moderator.
This is a forum to discuss hate and violent crimes against transgender people. It is also a place for victims to talk about what happened to them and gain help and support. Nearly 95% of crimes against us are never reported. If you are a victim, please report it here.
You may post your transgender-related poetry here. Any poetry posted must be your own and any copyright held must be held by you. Copyright infringements will be removed as soon as a moderator becomes aware of it, without notice.
An intersex individual is a person (or individual of any unisex species) who is born with genitalia and/or secondary sexual characteristics of indeterminate sex, or which combine features of both sexes.
This forum is a place to discuss the various aches, pains, and other complaints we all have. Please avoid playing doctor or applying your diagnosis or treatment to other members' situations - only a visit to a qualified health care professional can determine the right course of treatment.
This is the place to discuss news topics that affect our community. Discussions related to politics and activism should be posted here as well. This is also the place to list upcoming conferences and other gatherings.

Ohhh, those crazy [extremist] christians. Don't they know they're giving Christianity a bad name??? If Jesus came back to today, I bet (I wouldn't dare to speak on God's behalf) he'd exclaim, " You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."
Hello Jan! Welcome to the forum. I was in the military at the very end of the conflict, staying stateside as well. I'm glad you found us and registered for an account. You seem to have had an interesting life. I look forward to hearing more from you.
Perhaps it is luck, or the political climate in California, or just that most people don't care one way or another as long as you pay your bill, but I've used printers and other professionals for my business needs, and had to out myself in the process, and never had a problem. Why some business person would put prejudice ahead of $$ is a mystery to me.
As a new person to the forum, I wanted to say hello to everyone. I have known since the age of 5 that I was different yet back in those days, different meant you could be put in a mental institution. I served honorably during the Vietnam war era, though I was fortunate to stay stateside and was attached to the 502nd MP Company at Fort Hood, TX.
My life has had its many up's and down's until finally in 1992 I started hormonal therapy, my coming of age. During my career I was a syndicated talk show host, started my own company and became a political advocate of transgender rights.
Finally I am also an author including my personal mini-autobiography, "Through the Fog: A Journey Into the Unknown".
Hello to everyone and may the spirit within guide you each and every day.
