Those Moments When---!

The event I talked about in this topic

 

https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/topic/73654-interviewed-for-special-film-by-my-episcopal-church-diocese/

 

happened last night, and the video was shown.  The food and company were wonderful although I noted that the table I was at were all LGBT folks.  Perfectly fine in many ways, and people at other tables stopped by for talk, hugs and the like.

 

My only problem came was when the video was actually  being shown.  The sound system was less than great, and I could not even hear myself due to what it did.  During the time I was on screen, people were reaching out touching me and mini-hugging, so what ever it was they showed must have been touching them, but it is only in bits and pieces that I have figured out what parts of my interview were up on the screen, although people in the other parts of the room did hear it better and tell me they enjoyed it very much.  I went up to say farewell to our Bishop and he told me how he was touched by it, I just wish I could have heard it.  SIGH!!

I'm very proud that some of us are representing us in churches. That's probably the place I feel the least secure in. I would love to see that video one day :D

This is a sad but true situation many who otherwise would go to church find themselves in.  Thankfully there are congregations that are open and affirming.  One just has to seek them out.

@MaryMary  I am a member of the Episcopal Church here in Los Angeles CA. but we are part of the nationwide Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States.    I do know that you have the same basic denomination up there in Canada, (I believe it is the Anglican Church up there) and that most of its Parishes are welcoming and affirming of LGBT people.

      Hello "Girl inside my head", welcome!  Certainly do dive in and look about, and ask questions.     Do you have a name that you use, that we could call you?  Cheers, Jani

      That's what I took it to mean, that they could do more.  I think he was just giving an honest appraisal.  30% in top management is really good and I would think this is a high number for financial businesses overall.      Jani

      That sounds pretty good. I wonder why he said it was a "mixed review," unless its just to say that more work needs to be done.  Thanks, Jani.   Carolyn Marie

      Thank you, Dev, and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American members, and best wishes to all our members from around the world.  I hope that everyone has something to be thankful for.  I am thankful I belong to this wonderful community.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      New user as of today.    I struggle as a male but I'm a female trapped in a man's body.    I think and act like a girl but in a man's body.    I someday hope to be the real me.

      Thank you all so much. I really appreciate your responses!   The consensus seems to be to keep it to myself, and be prepared to document potential harassment, and only then make an issue out of it. I think that is the route I'll take. Phew - that's a load off!   @tracy_j, your experience sounds a lot like my potential situation. I really appreciate you sharing that.   I've read the HR policy on the dress code, and it says not to wear anything casual - to keep it business appropriate, which I think even in the unlikely event I'm brave enough to wear woman's clothing to work, so long as it's business-attire, it technically shouldn't be an issue. I took your advice looking at legal issues, and if I'm understanding it correctly, both my state and the federal law protect against discrimination based on sex which may include pregnancy, gender identity, or orientation as well as biological sex organs.

      Wow, it's been a year on HRT. I have come a long way in a year. If you told me I would still be on cloud 9 back then, I wouldn't have believed you. But here I am and still feeling great. Thank you all for being here and supporting me through this last year. I am looking forward to the things to come.    Hugs    Shawnna
