On Sat I spent the afternoon with the only local TG lady friend I have, Jean. She transitioned 7 years ago so she is a wealth of info & encouragement. We ate lunch at Chil's, then shopping at a local dept store called Dillard's. I just love shopping in the ladies dept, as our clerk Gabreilla treated us like all the ladies, would guess she never thought different. Got a pretty blue BCBG dress & now I have to find some occasion to wear it, not much hope in my boring…
actually I have good news in transgender-policy, especially for all of us transgender-sisters here in Germany.
In summer last year a 62year old german mtf lady had called the highest german official court for help and started a law suit against the german state and its official "Transsexuellengesetz" (germanwide used law for a name- and sex-change in documents like driverslicense or birthcertificate) from 1978, the so called german "transgender-law". Living as a… Read More
This weekend marked two very important events in my life surrounding my recent decision to transition. On friday i met with my therapist and informed her of my intentions to transition. My decision took her a little by surprise since I had not seen her in a couple of months and when last we spoke I was simply considering trying a low dose of hormones to see if that would ease anxiety. She was receptive to my decision and after 9 months of therapy off and on she felt that it was not a decision I… Read More
I've been taking hormones for over six months and the little blue pills I'm putting into my body are beginning to really move things along. I'm finally getting the shape I have craved since I was a child.
Given these changes... I have begun to notice a serious change in attitude from the people I encounter in public. In the past, I could walk into a room full of women and without exception every single woman would immediately change the subject or cease speaking altogether until I… Read More
Jeez, i'm fair dinkum sick to death of that Anonymous Poll about being gay or not, popping up every single time I click a button.
Surely there is an escape button or whatever, that can be attached to it once you have or have not answered it.
As it is, it's the last time I will answer anything that started as a bit of fun and is now as bad as this bloody worm that I still can't get out of my damn computer.
This self help piece really hit home with me. Some of the points I already practice and others I definitely need to improve on. I hope it helps some and brings amusement for others.
I’ve certainly covered the following information many times over on this site (possibly not all at the same time). However, it’s become apparent that not everyone connects with, relates to or gains value from the traditional personal development language or paradigm. Or words like paradigm (for that… Read More
So, as some of you might know, I have a very nice GG who I've been spending time with as Paula. Since she's known me for a while, it's been slightly awkward for me to express who I really am, but it's been going pretty well.
As a fun birthday present, she's been out buying me some fun clothes. She gave me a bunch of them last week, but I didn't have a chance to try them on. When I saw her this week, she gave me a nice blouse and sweater she had found.
If any of you read my last post, I wrote about my bestest friend and her new girlfriend, who she just found out was a trans woman.
Before finding that information out, she was working with her business partner and they just started working on a PSA for Transgendered Youth and had plans to shoot a long form video (documentary) looking at all the aspects and differences within the TG community.
This is a project that will be done with the utmost respect and… Read More
I am about to look for options on how to finance ($19,000) GCS this fall. I have no choice but to charge it either by loan, credit card, 401K loan or combinations of the three then of course the other less pleasant option is to save up for years and pay cash. I am wondering how some of our members paid or are… Read More
I have finally decided that transition is the right path for me and for the moment I am overjoyed with the contentment of finally having a path. I find that many of the issues that plagued my decision previously have faded into things I feel are inconsequential, I hope my new found confidence does not wane as things progress.
I have a therapy session tomorrow in which I'll be informing my therapist of my desire to transition. After about 9 months of sessions off and on I hope that… Read More

Has anyone had issues with their bodies rejecting hormone therapy after a period of time? I have been doing HRT for about a year and half. I had a very hairy chest, arms, and legs and it was felt it would be a good idea to get a head start on the hair. I started with two popular anti-androgen's and after several months noticed some of my hair was indeed disappearing. This spring we introduced hormones to the regimen and I thought that would help with the hair loss. By early September, I had… Read More
