Welcome! you’ve come to the right place.
From the age of 5 or 6, I too knew that I didn’t fit with my birth gender. It has taken me 40 years to “come out” as trans and udentify as female. Mine is a long journey, it will be at least another 2 years before I can get on hormones as the law stands now (UK). I am hoping that the law will change soon so I can self-identify rather than go through the psychological assessment process that exists now.
