I am new to this site but of course not to being trans. How to begin... I have only recently started to accept the fact that I am transgender after battling with gender issues my entire life. Within the past two months I have come out to my mother and My sister. My wife of course has known for quite some time. Honestly I was afraid to come on here and post my actual picture and not be some psuedo character that I created. The time for honesty has come for me and I don't know what that is going to cost me yet. I am married with two boys and I love them and my wife more than anything. It is hard to tell your secrets but for my own peace of mind and purposes I need to tell them. I am built like a football lineman and I want to be female or think I am? I have always said god has a sense of humor. I do what I can and really I am so tired of hiding who I am and being depressed. My hope is that I can learn from those here and help to establish what my path is on this journey. Hopefully those who read my posts can learn something also. We are all human beings who share a common experience. The trap that I want to avoid is letting my transgender issues define who I am. I am WAY more than just a trans-person. I am a husband, a dad, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend who happens to come under the umbrella of what our professional establishment has labeled "transgendered". No matter how feminine I choose to become I can never know what it is to be an actual natural born female. I can emulate, copy, try my best to be but I will always be labeled trans even if I believe with all my heart that I am truly a woman. I can never divorce myself from being male or try so very hard to forget that experience...it is a part of me. My goal is to move forward, to educate myself and to above all grow into the person I was meant to be.
That being said Hi, I'm new here. Kevin
