Alexandria, yes, life outside can be tough for some. And you are finding out what a lot of us discovered, that people in general are a lot more accepting that we give them credit for. There will always be the bad ones out there, but those exist for anyone or any group.
If you look in Social -> Member Directory, you can search for other people that may be near by. Or under Places -> Local Places, you can search for all sorts of things that may be near you. Hope to see you chatting soon. Oh, and don’t forget about digging through the Articles and Forums. Loads of information there. And this is a link to some info about navigating the website – https://transgenderheaven.com/forums/topic/member-howto-for-navigating-the-tgh-website/. Hugs, Michelle
