I am AMAB, now 68. I’ve been aware of my gender incongruity since I was five. Since that young age, I have struggled with the question, “Why do I have such an intense desire to be a girl?” It wasn’t just that I wanted to dress as a girl and now a woman; no...

I was a child of the early ’60s. Back then, the world was a much different place, and I learned quickly that I did not fit in. I thought I was a girl, and my parents had wanted a boy. I believed that the stretch marks under my scrotum were from having my boyhood sown on. My fir...
So… My father passed peacefully at home. I knew it was getting close as he was sleeping more and not wanting to eat solids. His mind was there, but I knew he was processing the coming end. When he gave up wanting to drink his nourishment and told me he didn’t want his daily b...
First, a little background about me, for those who haven’t read my other articles. I am a 67-year-old trans woman, who came out only two years ago. It has been a whirlwind of changes, some good and some not-so-good. I was a lifelong crossdresser (although now I consider dressin...

On December 16, 2022, Brielle was officially, legally born. She’d been gestating for nearly 6 decades, but with a family court judge’s ruling, Brielle burst out onto the streets of Pittsburgh. How did these events set up? I suppose it all began in 1960. I have clear memories ...
On October 7th, I went to a courtroom of the Superior Court, County of Los Angeles, to collect some exceedingly important (to me) paperwork: the official court decree establishing my legal name as Dana Renee Munson… and my legal gender as “female.” I had filed t...
I struggle with understanding and accepting my identity; it feels as if I always have. Looking back on nearly seven decades, my sense of who I am has wobbled with an eccentric orbit between the poles of gender identity, at times near but never touching definitive masculinity or f...
In my previous article, I wrote about the cost of living your truth as a transgender man or woman. I also spoke about the impact on one’s family and relationships, and how it still scares me. After two months it surely has been a rocky road for my spouse and me. It is hard to c...
