Hi everyone and nice to meet you all! I am a 65 year old M2F that transitioned in the dark ages (1992). I have been married for 21 years, and my wife is very supportive of the LGBTQ+ community. Ask me any question you would like. I’m an open book.

Hello LauraMarie and welcome.  1992 was certainly a while ago.  I'm sure you have stories you can tell about those times.  Anyway, join in the conversation.  I'm sure you can add quite a bit.


Cheers, Jani

Welcome Laura Marie! Glad you're here. I stopped to think what my life was like in 1992. It wasn't transitioning, I was deep in the corner of a dark closet, with a lot of self hate & denial. How did you come to accept you as you? Was there any support?

Welcome to Trans Pulse, LauraMarie.  I'm sure we can learn as much from you as you can from any of us.  You are a pioneer!  Congrats on your long marriage, too.  We welcome your contributions to these forums.

Welcome @LauraMarie!  Thank you for joining this Forum!  I am sure your experience will be helpful for myself and many here.


I am originally a West-coaster also, and currently living in Japan.  But hope we have an opportunity to meet someday when I return. 


Looking forward to your future posts❣️

Welcome to TransgenderPulseForums @LauraMarie

Thank you for making yourself and life experiences available here. I'm late to the transition process, as I waited until my mid 60's to start.

There was a in person support group that I went to back then, but most members were crossdressers with no real intention to transition. Out if 50 or so members in our group only 3 or 4 were in active transition. Most were afraid because of loosing their friends and family. There was no protections back then, and little support. I was so focused that nothing detoured me from transitioning.

Welcome @LauraMarie, I missed this introduction but better late than never. It’s a genuine pleasure to have a new member with as much experience as yourself.  I would enjoy reading more about the trials and tribulations you’ve experienced over the years. I wonder how the changes in societal acceptance of the transgender community has impacted you. Have you recently become even more advocating or more ‘open book’ or have you always been this way from the beginning of your earliest years of transition?


Warmest Regards,

Susan R🌷

@LauraMarie Thank you for your focus & determination! You and others surely made it easier for those like me following after you broke the trail.
