  1. I'm new here and trying to figure everything out. I've never done makeup before a couple weeks ago, so I don't really know what I'm doing. I'm not 100% happy with the results, so I need some advice from you legends. Thanks!
  2. The Oldest Problem Child

    I want some crossdressing help.

    I am not out to my parents about being genderfluid and so have no way to express myself "femininely" without feeling outed. I was just wondering if there were ways to express myself with out feeling outed at home. I already get made fun of at home for being Bi (thought it was a good idea to come out then), so I just wanna try and be me in secret.
  3. Hello! I am looking for advice if anyone has it on dealing with dysphoria around my hips and butt? I have a good chest binder and like to think i can pass fairly well, but I have a very shapely bottom that causes me a lot of discomfort... I tend to buy specific styles of pants that mask the shape better, but even still sometimes I'll walk by a floor length mirror and cringe ? I've seen stuff about compression shorts helping, but want to know if anyone has recommendations before I buy...most of the shorts i find advertise compression specifically in ways i DON'T want... go figure... A
  4. Greetings! I finally find myself at a point in my life where I can try to settle some of the gender issues that have caused so many issues over the years. I'm biologically male, but don't always feel that way. It seems language has finally caught up with what I've always felt. Genderfluid is the best descriptor I've been able to find for me. I have days where I feel very male. Other days very female and feminine. It has not proven to be predictable, which is currently my greatest source of anxiety. I've had days where I feel great. Perfectly at home in my skin. Other days when I

    What am I?

    Hello everyone. I have been exploring transgender for about two years now, and I've found many things that would suggest I may be transgender, such as my preference for playing as female characters in video games, among other things, though I have no signs of dysphoria; I don't dislike being a man, as it's just me. But I have always envied women as well as been attracted to them, so I don't know what I am. I am happy being male, but then, I may find being female to be better suited to me, as there is more room for personal expression as a female, or at least that is wha

    Needing help and support

    I am struggling a lot today. I am currently post-crisis after a issue back towards the end of Sept. I would go into details but I have a very good reason for not doing so. My suicidal ideology is moderate today. That means I would not act on any plans or thoughts. If it were to increase to severe I would call a crisis line and they might determine to drag me to the mental hospital if they made it in time to get me, which I have faith they would as great kind spirit loves me and has kept around this long I tried discord and the transhelp line but did not have any success
  7. I am in need of sincere consul. My son (until otherwise identifying, he has not yet explored his pronouns yet and I will fully embrace them when he has) has been recently requesting to wear dresses. I have absolutely no problem buying him the clothes that he will feel more comfortable in and will help him love himself for who he is.. But I do have a problem with wearing them out into public - however, not for reasons you might expect. We live in a considerably conservative city. My son has been in full bloom and expresses his love for all things pink/purple, covered in

    Embarrassed and Unsure

    Hello, Recently I started coming out as trans to my immediate family and friend circle. I have spent most of my life (25 yrs) wishing I were a boy, and being uncomfortable/sad being referred to as female. I am generally OK with my body, I'm pretty sure HRT is not for me, but I bought a chest binder and have been feeling loads better because of it. Just trying at this point to accept myself as a boy, trying to undo the years of seeing myself as female. If I could press a button to become male, I would -- I just want to FEEL like a boy, if that makes sense. And, sometimes I do, and i
  9. Hi guys! so a little while ago I made a post asking about whether or not a therapist that isn't a gender therapist could write me a letter of recommendation. Well I asked her about it and she said it feels "unethical" and that she would have to do some research . I want her to be aware of Informed Consent but I don't know how to take that route and would feel more comfortable with a rec letter. She just needs proof that it's fine to do is there anything in a WPATHS standard of care proving me point, that I could show her? Or is it truly unethical?

    A Predicament

    I go by Loren. I am 22 years old, I would say I'm bi, but when I'm in girl mode. The only thing that's on my mind is -penis-. Anyway I've been dressing for some time now going out and all that. Back in August I was seeing this girl for a while but we both decided to end it, and since then I've been feeling lonely. So I decided to go out en femme and I met a guy who is very interested in people who cross-dress and we've been going out together since. it's been casual so far and we have had sex but as of lately he's been hellbent on trying to convince me into living with him as a fem 24/7, a par
  11. So I am a female assigned at birth, 15 years old in a month. For the past month or even past half year, I don't know if even more(?) I've been questioning my gender identity a lot. I do feel like I'm not a female, but then I have so many thoughts about being trans maybe and what if not... Because all the trans people I've heard about always knew from a little age that they're not the gender they were born and all this stuff. But I'm not like this, I don't think so at least? I can say I'm pretty feminine and I've never questioned much anything but my sexuality. But from a

    Dark thoughts

    Just to start off no, im not about to kill myself here and now. Im just fine right now i havent even self harmed but this year ive been having thoughts. I guess i've allways been depressed and kinda hate myself and three years of isolation has not been good for mental state but i am getting concerned. I dont think i'd off and do it now but more and more suicide has been to me a feasable option. Like a kind of plan c and im scared that eventually it might go up to plan a if anything goes wrong. I've thought about nooses, even tested what it'd feel like by strangling myself with a pi

    Looking for a solid conclusion

    I'm 18 years old and currently living in Brazil. I've been thinking a lot lately about going to a therapist to talk about this, but I'm not sure if it's even worth since I'm not sure if I should (or want) to call myself transgender. I'm going to tell a little about my story. When I was a kid I liked to dress myself with my friend's wardrobe, which consisted of typical boy's underwear and clothing, I even gave myself a boy name and tried to pee while standing in some occasions, but me and my parents saw that as some sort of waggery. As I grew, I didn't really bother with "belonging" to a g
  14. For months, my first foster family sexually abuse me. I remember it vaguely, I was only two. After I got out of the foster home, I become trans. Don't be a victim.
  15. So like I stopped wearing my binder a week ago because I was starting to bruise and I couldn’t breathe but nothing has changed. Everyday since then it’s been getting worse and worse for me. Every day I’m hurting more and more and my breath is going away fast. I’m getting a lot more winded.
  16. I've been struggling with my gender identity for around six years now, and I think I'm finally ready to start transitioning to my preferred gender (female) The thing is, I really don't know where to start my transition. My family doesn't know about my gender dysphoria, and I don't feel too comfortable telling them my true feelings, seeing as they're all very religious Christians, and they're all very conservative as well. I've only been able to come out to two of my friends, who have been very supportive of me. I also am very tall (and not what you would call skinny). I
  17. Hello, my name is Kath and I... I don't want to say I have a problem, but I do. Just yesterday, my best friends for two years came out to me as transgender (mtf). As much I want to say that I took it lightly, it would be a lie. I started crying and shaking and I don't even know why. We both started crying, to be honest, since I'm the first person she's ever told about this. I don't have any issue with using her pronouns, or her preferred name, hell, I even suggested I could help her with whatever feminine stuff she might possibly need. But I'm still really confused, and I'm scared. I
  18. We were a heterosexual couple until a year ago. First came wearing female underwear, for sexual fantasies at first I thought. But then that became the norm. Then came dressing full on in woman's clothing, dresses etc. Then the stubble was replaced for make up, but not during the day, in standard life, all of this behind closed doors. Then came wigs, I helped in every way I could, to achieve the picture that my partner had in his mind, to help him become that person who seemed to be trapped inside him. As he walked and moved like a man, we practiced the female walk and actions, watching women a
  19. ok, so im self conscious as it is, but recently one of my only friends that im out to jokingly said that when i end up on hormones that im going to end up like a drag queen. they meant it harmlessly but it really got to me, am i really too masculine to actually look feminine with hormones? please be honest, any opinions are completely welcome, i just need to know thank you in advance <3 ^~^
  20. Dear Respected members of Laura's Playground, I am a Straight Girl, but my boyfriend has gender Dysphoria of MTF. I found this out 3 years ago when he came out to me (I will explain why I use He and not she soon). I love him more than life itself, and through my deepest saddest times, he was always there to support me. During the year of 2013, he was a she to me. My best friend, I called her by her preferred name, female pronouns, and we were as close as two people could be. She was my soul bestie, however, I completely crumbled and my heart broke in losing my friend, the male version of her
  21. So I only came out earlier this year and I only started researching everything more recently as well so I apologize if I don't understand everything correctly. My goals for myself and my body right now is to have top surgery and some sort of bottom surgery as well. I am pre everything and just started talking about getting on hormones, thing is I'm not really wanting to get on hormones for most of the effects like voice change, facial hair, etc I mainly want it for genital growth, which I didn't even know happened until a few months ago and when I did see that was possible I became ecstatic a
  22. So I am Now 29 Years old, and i have known all of my life that i am a woman. However upon being sabotaged and beaten over the head by everybody that i thought was my friend or loved one; i concluded that i needed to wait before i transitioned. That was over a decade ago and now i'm crazier than ever. My family is literally trying to kill me, via poisonings, and paying guys to try to infect me with various disease etcetera. I've lost jobs because my former boss, was my Ex-friend and my brother's close friend, so they both threw me under the bus and vilified me all around the town im from. I am
  23. Hello all, I live in the West Palm Beach area of Florida. I just came from our weekly support TBLG meeting. I have to say that the spectrum of T problems and solutions ran the gamut from twenty something's to septaganariums. The angst and fears we shared were universal across our ages. I was reminded that while my personal gender issues are moving forward, I.E. I just petitioned the court for my name change. There are many who's life paths are not being fulfilled, or just not quickly enough. This world turns slowly and we all want it right now. I was buoyed by the good spirits and the fears
  24. I spoke to a doctor sometime in March about being transgender (he's referred me to the mental health services for this and other things) and my parents asked about binders because they said they'd allow me to buy one if they were safe, but my doctor said that it's not recommended and he thinks I should wait because I'm "still developing and it could cause damage" and I don't know what to do. I'm also not allowed to change my name because my parents think they're protecting me (as mentioned in my previous post) but I think it's stupid. They might be protecting me from others' hate but not my o
