Here's a link to the movie's website. I totally cannot wait to see this!

http://www.boymeetsgirlmovie.com/

What's more is that I'm looking at this lovely lady, Michelle Hendley, (who is transgender, btw) and I'm seeing a young lady that I can finally identify with and relate to after all these years.

Also the website has trailers for the movie and some behind the scenes stuff, too.

Looks like a good Rom com. I hope all the good bits aren't just what's in the trailer though.

It's on Vimeo. Just watched last night. Overall it's the best trans movie I've ever seen. I highly recommend it. As much as I was dissatisfied with Transparent I loved this. It was so sweet.

I'm not much for romantic comedies, but I kind of want to see this just because they've actually cast a trans actor in a trans role! It's sad that alone makes me happy.

Ripely it really isn't a romantic comedy. Not in the sense that it's usually used. It's much more of a dramedy or just plain drama. There's plenty of funny lines but that's not the focus at all.

Just an fyi, this movie is now available to purchase and watch online or you can buy the dvd on amazon.

...and my copy is in the mail as we speak. I'm excited! I've heard really good things about this movie. Like, "it's a more positive depiction of us and our struggle than TransAmerica was" and "not just in the top 10 of must see movies with a transgender character, but the #1 movie of that list"

OMG! That was such a GREAT movie! It was so real and, by far, the best depiction of trans women and our struggles (and joys) that I've ever seen. On top of that, it was just a good movie all around.

Overall, a MUST WATCH!

I ordered the DVD yesterday, and it arrived in the mail today.

...too bad I'm not going to be home to watch it, but, mom is bringing it along for our get together in WI.

Speedy delivery at it's finest!

I watched it this weekend. It was great! Bring a box of tissues - you'll cry both happy and sad tears.

I just finished watching the movie and I have mixed reviews. I liked it in parts and I didn't like it in parts. The movie did a very good job at showing some of the struggles we face with acceptance. The cynic in me looked at a couple scenes in the movie and thought, "that wouldn't happen" but as a friend reminded me...it's a movie, so it's a bit of an exaggeration of the normal. Um, I wasn't expecting full-frontal in this movie so just be mindful of that. (I can't exactly have my mom watch it because she doesn't like that kind of thing) Then of course I cried at the end.

For the most part, though, the movie was definitely relate-able. Several times, Ricky said something that I would have said myself. :)

We watched it the other night with my father-in-law and sister-in-law visiting. We all enjoyed it and it speaks so many truths about being transgender.

I actually bought that movie (Boy meets Girl) because I loved it, and the cast and story. Another good movie to watch, I believe it's a made for TV movie, called Normal. Jessica Lange played the part amazingly.

While Boy meets Girl had a couple parts where I cried pretty hard, there were some parts in Normal where I fell completely apart. Both have happy endings and both are in my opinion, well made......

AWESOME Movie :)

 

FYI, if anyone didn't know, the trans star Michelle Hendley has her own Youtube channel.  I love it.  She posts sporadically, but it's always interesting and sometimes very funny.

Yes, I own the DVD.  I ordered it the minute it was available...

On a slightly funny note, I recommended the film to a cis-female co-worker.  She liked it, but her comment was,"Why didn't they cast a "real" transgender in the lead?"...  She thought Michelle was a cis-female made to look trans with "special effects" :)

      An interesting subject. Probably a lifetimes work there!   Tracy

      Yes I agree to staying online. At least you have friends you can relate to here which is good, epecially if things get tough.   Tracy

      Good luck! I don't know how well it will relate to your job but I have a general link here which gives a flavour of things in the NHS.  It, and the links from it, may be a help. https://www.nhsemployers.org/retention-and-staff-experience/diversity-and-inclusion/policy-and-guidance/sexual-orientation   Private companies do not usually publish their policies online (as far as I know) but NHS trust and probably local government documents are likely to be available. A quick look found this for Newcastle: http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/policies/Personnel/GenderTransitionatWorkPolicy201808.pdf   I had a little look and found some info which private companies give but it would take a bit of searching to find details specific to gender, but may exist although maybe only in large companies. I did come across a council document though:   https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s36286/Appendix - Transgender Guidance Notes.pdf   Tracy

      I'm sure as Carolyn Marie said, most of us had doubts.    Me personally, I had a lot of doubts the months before I got on hrt. But by the time I got it, I reasoned that I'd never be happy to keep going on as a man. So I took the plunge, and so far transition has been pretty gentle to me. I'm very content with my choice and where I see transition taking me now.    Really at the end of the day, it's your decision though. If you aren't already, maybe consider talking with a gender therapist, or find a community meeting local to you. Some ways to get some perspective.

      Hello, Crystal Elaine, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  I want to start by congratulating you on being open minded, non-judgemental, loving and supportive.  It is wonderful to hear about, as its not as common an occurrence as we would hope.   What you've done together so far is a great start.  Other suggestions I can make include letting him dress and sleep in a nightgown (some have sexual relations this way, and I hear it can really invigorate a couple's sex life).  Helping him with makeup, buying a wig, wearing small items of jewelry (that he can hide from others, like an ankle bracelet) can also help with feeling feminine.   I'm sure others will have great ideas, too.  Thanks for asking, and best wishes to you both.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Many of us have doubts about virtually every aspect of our transition.  Having doubts and questions about HRT is not only normal, it is logical and sensible.  That's because HRT carries risks, as does any prescription medication, and those risks can be significant, especially if you have some types of pre-existing conditions.   My advice is to read as much as you can from reputable sites and publications, starting with the WPATH Standards of Care.  There is a whole lot of good information about it, including on this web site.  Being informed and knowledgeable is important.  I've had to educate some of my own doctors, which is not an unusual thing.   If you have specific questions, we'll try to answer them, but we aren't medical professionals, so be guided by your doctors and by your own informed mind.   Carolyn Marie

      Hey everyone,    Thanks for all the advice from my last post.    Today, I went to an endo doctor, and they say I might be able to hopefully start hormones in the next couple of weeks. When they told me that, I was excited but still hesitant. I always keep thinking that I'm going to have regrets or something. Is that normal? Did any of you have this feeling when starting hormones?    Thanks in advance!!

      My husband recently discovered by complete accident that he likes cross dressing. When I say by accident, I had seen videos of boyfriends/husbands doing their girlfriends/wives makeup, and I asked him to do mine. After he was done, I asked to do his. To both of our surprise, he really liked it. Now we are pretty adventurous in the bedroom, and we decided this could be a fun role play (my husband is into domination/humiliation). However, he didn't feel dominated or humiliated. He felt empowered and "pretty" to use his own words. For the rest of the night, he wore one of my dresses and a full face of makeup. The next day, we went out and bought a wig to complete his look. That night, I taught him how to do his own makeup, he put on one of my dresses and his wig, and he absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. When I looked at him, I didn't feel like I was looking at my husband. I felt as though I had lost my husband.    After discussing this with my husband, he explained that he just liked not having to feel masculine. He likes getting in touch with his feminine side. Now my husband is a correctional officer who grew up in a strict southern baptist household. We have been exploring his sexuality together recently, and he has come to the decision that he not attracted to men, but he does still like to dress as a woman. He does not feel as though he is a woman, he is just tired of feeling like he has to live up to the standard masculine social norms.    We decided that I may have been uncomfortable because we just jumped straight into it instead of easing in. So we have decided to work up to him completely cross dressing by doing things that are deemed feminine. Last night, we did a foot scrub, painted our toe nails, and did a facial mask. I would love suggestions of other activities we can do to not only help me ease into the idea of my husband cross dressing, but to also allow him to do what makes him feel comfortable and helps him relax. I would also love any advice on what has helped anyone else through the same situation.   I love my husband dearly, and it's been a while since I've seen my husband that happy and relaxed. I am trying to support him the best that I can, but I am also confused by this.

      Hey Pixie... honestly I am so lost right now, but I  know this:  I have being dealing with other voices in my head that are not helpful to me. If it was not for my Gender Therapist properly would of off myself. So If you feel confused getting a G.T is a great starting point. Good luck be safe and keep us update  this site is a great sounding block and welcome
