You found us! Very Good!
Rather than wait for someone to contact you, I suggest 2 things:
You can find other members in the St.Louis area by doing a search. Click on Social in the menu and then Member Directory. Those would be the people to direct your questions to.
Do an internet search with the string: transgender resources near me Alternatively, you also substitute St. Louis for near me.
I think doing these things will greatly improve your chances. Also, doing the internet search will likely turn up organizations that do support groups and social events. The idea is that connecting with the community will help prevent isolation, which is a terrible thing for us.
Also, I encourage you to complete your Profile page. It is a great way for other members to understand your situation and where you are headed. The page will always be readily available and can be updated at any time.
