Hey Jude! Welcome to the forums and hello from your neighbor here in NYC. It's nice to meet you and I'm hopeful you'll find the community here warm and friendly.

(Now I have a certain Beatles song stuck in my head...)

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Hi Jude, Nice to meet you. If you have a minute and are open to the idea, why not tell us alittle more about your journey thus far? I’m sure like many others here, you have much to share. I’m sure your story might be of help to others who have had similar backgrounds and experiences.

 

Warmest Regards,

Nice to meet you all too. Here's a little of my background: I found out that trans people existed in college and thought that was really cool. The first transgender person I met was a transman who passed very well. I thought he was cis before he explained that he was trans and even showed me a picture of what he looked like pre-physical transition (unprompted).  I was very out as a pansexual polyamorous person and even lived in the first gender inclusive housing on campus at my school for my last 2 years of undergrad. I helped to keep this housing open and available to students on campus since my 2 out transgender roommates didn't have any spoons for advocacy in addition to simply being out and trans at the same time (in addition to dealing with 2 different kinds of mental illnesses respectively). This housing has expanded since I've been there and now includes 2 suites in freshman housing in addition to 2 suites in upperclassmen housing (although I imagine this may fluctuate on the need for gender-inclusive housing based on the amount of people interested per semester). I went to many gender discussion groups hosted by a nonbinary person in my area after undergrad and came out as nonbinary around 2017-2018. I use They/Them pronouns exclusively and have issues with gendered restrooms whenever I am in a building that doesn't have a gender neutral option. If I have to choose I will typically use the women's but I hate it. I wish all buildings had gender neutral restrooms available. I lived in San Francisco for about a year and was able to get an "X" on my drivers license, which was awesome! Then I moved to NYC and got my name changed with the help of some lawyers who took on my case pro bono (in connection with the NYC LGBT Center). Then I moved back to CT and had to choose between "M" or "F" on my new license and was sad, but at least the name was right this time! Last January (2020) Connecticut updated their requirements for changing a gender marker on licenses and I was able to change mine to "X" again so I'm pretty psyched about that. :) Currently I'm taking classes to get my masters at a local state school and working full time from home with my girlfriend (she's trans too). I've had to advocate for myself a lot this past semester since Connecticut's state schools haven't updated their systems to allow "X" as an option yet. It's slow going but my estimated graduation date is Spring of 2022 so I've got time to make some noise before I graduate.

      I switched from boxers to boxer briefs for packing purposes several months ago. I found that i prefer the fit of the latter, and I now pack on a somewhat regular basis, but I've had some "slippage." It's been more annoying than I huge issue, but I want to avoid it if possible when my college starts back next week (Jan. 26th) . (I tried trunks, but I don't like the short legs). I know that getting an actual harness is the best option, but I don't have the time to wait on one to arrive in the mail. That's why I'm thinking of trying a jock strap under my boxer briefs because I can buy them locally. I was wondering if anyone has used them for this purpose before, and if y'all think this might be a possible solution.

      That's really a wonderful story to read; not the attack, of course, but the community response.  Hopefully the victim will take heart knowing that she has friends in the community.  The attackers need to be punished, for sure.   Carolyn Marie

      I always just call but sometime I have to call a couple of times to get through. My last few appointments have been done tele-health and I was able to get blood work done out by me. They're over an hour from me so I do understand the drive to get there. When I made my first appointment they did ask if I had a preferred name, that's when the name Elizabeth chose me. They're good people there. No one has ever questioned or looked at me strange. Just made me feel normal.

      A bad situation that has a hopeful end.   https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/vehicle-parade-in-mission-draws-strong-support-for-student-attacked-and-beaten-by-peers-1.5877139?fbclid=IwAR0ys3klQAqGXIYfpoRbfniW3wJ7RLvgrFpZKAZsx9u9TswL-BFLkUQ1cDk

      I really wish I wasn't so lonely all the time but, I am to scared to leave this darkness that hides my shadow from me. 😭
    • Jamie68
      I'm guessing Howard Brown is about 1-1/2 hrs. away. I sent them a message once to get an appointment, they didn't respond. It's worth another try. I live about an hour south of the intersection of I-80 and I-55. Thanks

      I wish I could do my own nails. I live with some one right now. That dosn't like my woman side. On top of me working all the time. I just don't have the freedom, and time to do it. So the queen likes to get pampered.   The ladies were loving it this weekend. I was getting a pedicure, and my nails done at the same time, and I must have just had that look. Like I was just super relaxed. As they were doing their work.    Once I'm out on my own. I'll probably pick some stuff up, and figure out how to do them. As I'll have more free time then to. I'm also going to school for nails in the fall or next spring. So I would like to know somewhat how to do them before I start.

      I guess that I am hopelessly romantic. I keep listening to Christina Perri A Thousand Years.

      @AudreyCan't wait to see it, assuming all goes well.   My dumb ass (can I say that here?) inadvertently maybe outed myself to a customer today. We were talking about the service history on his account when I just had to say "Yeah, I remember from the last time I was there". Grant it, it was a few years ago but pre-HRT. I did manage kept moving through the conversation without missing a beat and side-stepped it when he mentioned me by my dead name as being his favorite tech. He's probably scratching his head right now trying to figure out when a woman came out and serviced his account.

      @VickySGV I understand exactly what you mean by the dominant personally of the father. Mine dominated me, and my mother, even though she gave as good as she got from him. Talk about a totally dysfunctional parental relationship growing up. I could never talk about how I felt to them at all. I know that it would have meant either conversion therapy in our church, or a beating within an inch of my life. All they understood was male, female, and straight. Gay, lesbian, was not in their vocabulary and to my knowledge transgender was not even a word yet where I grew up even though it might have been in other parts of the USA. They picked and chose what parts of the Bible to throw at me. From parts of the Old Testament to the New just to make me feel bad about being me. I truly believe this is why I had a really difficult time dating, making friends, and so on. They controlled how I felt to the point I just wanted to be alone all the time, and kids in school left me that way. Plus because they were also school teachers in the same district I went to school in didn't help with the friend situation at all. I never understood how they could act so different in public, and be such monsters in private. I guess that's why I didn't really cry when they died. The monsters were dead, and I could finally go on and heal my life and be me. I know I am not there yet, and it will take time.  Thank you for your wisdom, Gina

      @ElizabethStar Love the bunny slippers! @Jackie C. And the pretty work hat!   This thread is blowing up tonight, I was idle for a while and it said "show 15 new posts?" when I came back. Hope everyone is having a lovely evening. Pretty quiet here, which is good, but it's the calm before the storm I fear. I'm expecting a crazy busy workweek with five days worth of tasks crammed into four because of the holiday today.   Also - ultimately, I *did* splurge and buy the suit! In navy blue. I hope it fits, even though my body lacks the curves to really make it work. It's how I'll feel wearing it that I really want to know...   Love, ~Audrey.
