Hi everyone


Recommended Posts


Hello everyone, my name is Michael but you can call me Holly Noel. I am 51 years old and just starting out. Well I took my first real big girl step today, I had my first gender therapist appointment today. My therapist is amazing, she's cute and by that I mean adorable. When I told her I didn't know how to apply makeup, she told me to bring in my makeup and she would teach me how to apply it.


I want to thank Jackie Rabbit for pointing me to this site. And I want to thank everyone here. I hope we can be friends.

Hello HollyNoel and welcome!  Jackie's site has been very interesting, she's so positive.  Great news about seeing a therapist.  As to makeup, try to experiment and remember less is more!  Please join in the conversation!!

Welcome Holly Noel!  I doubt my therapist Bernard would be any better than me at makeup -you're lucky. lol. Plus, everything is video therapy right now in my area.  Anyways, glad you found us!

Thank You so much. I'm glad to have a place where I can come for help when I need it. Today I took another big girl step and started to look for a doctor in my area that has experience with girls like me. I called my local hospital to see if they can point me to a doctor that would be comfortable with seeing a trans woman. They're going to call me tomorrow to let me know if they know of anyone. I'm hoping to find a female doctor because I feel that women are more understanding and open minded in general so they would be more willing to accept a girl like me as a new patient. I really want to start HRT so that I can continue on my journey. If there isn't someone, I'm going to go to my local Planned Parenthood, I read they're LGBT friendly and offer hormones if I need them and I do.. lol. Anyway, I want to thank all the wonderful people here that are making me feel so welcome. *HUGS*!

      There are still a lot of people that would like to see that here.  And some of the current politics are a little disquieting at times. I think this is one thing that anyone coming out publicly needs to realize.

      Hei alle sammen,   I too get jealous of YouTube. But two things, 1) yes I transitioned very late in life, but those years, those scars on my body and my heart, I earned them, and they made me who I am at my core. Yes, I have made more than a few good choices and some really bad ones, but that makes me who I am. 2) Yes I would like to look in the mirror and see the woman I have dreamed I would be, but the life that led me to this place has been a hard one. Do I wish that life had had not so many twists and turns? Again yes. But when I look in the mirror I do see me, the woman I have become and I am proud of her for not quitting, for not giving up in defeat just because I'm not the head turner I had hoped to be. Add all that up and that reflection looks pretty (censored - beat you to it admins) good.  Remember girls: Illegitimi non carborundum Velsignelser Erikka

      https://www.kolotv.com/2020/09/29/california-will-house-transgender-inmates-by-gender-identity/   The CA legislature and Governor continue to do right by our community.  Let's hope other states follow suit.   Carolyn Marie

      Being completely honest, I am feeling trapped, drained and powerless.    I just came to terms that my parents won't let me move until I'm 18. Everyday lectures are draining my energy and will to do anything. I'm expected to preform at 100% everyday and they only give me 3 hours for school each day. I'm really stressing and they are expecting straight A's, which I have at the moment but I'm scared of even getting a B. I couldn't sleep last night and caffeine doesn't work on me, it's just makes me calm. I miss being in person for school because I had support but now I have nothing, of course online helps a lot but it's limited. I just feel cornered and blehhh.

      Well DeeDee The first 15 minutes was really akward and all I could think of was "what have I done" But after that the talk went really well. The worries went away as we talked a little about the topic and switched to another topic for a little while and then back. It was like just any other conversation. Im a bit scared but I feel a sligth relief as some weigths have been lifted off.   Victoria

      Some of us have started the transition when we were very young and had the surgery also at a young age, and not after a man was married to woman ( one or two times) and also having children and grandchildren,then he decides to transition at age 60+...   Face, hands, body, voice etc... were not developed  yet to become as a man and with the hormones, our body fully changed to that woman you see  and admire.  Myself included and many other ladies that I know, have not touched our face surgically ( feminization). Later in life, we may have went under the knife to perhaps have “the French beauty” ( Bardot, Gabor, Lauren etc).   Thats my answer to the OP and Shay dear, we are not fake, that was bold for you to say that!

      Let me know if you need a co or partner usually on around 10 est most days
    • Shay
      Being like us is not easy and it takes all of us to support us - when you're down look here and you'll find someone to help - when you're up do the same for another one of us who is down. BOTH will make you feel better. Hug
