    Hello everyone.

    Once again it’s time for the monthly TGH poll.

    This month we are focusing on your experiences on coming out at work and any discrimination you may have faced.

    It can be hard enough to come out to family and friends and live your authentic life, It’s even harder for some to maintain employment and friendships at work during transition and indeed after.

    I myself have lost employers and have been subjected to sexist comments so I know personally how hurtful this can be.

    Once again we are running a multiple choice poll and as always your responses may help those following in your brave footsteps.

    Hugs Cami xx

    There were only 3 months between when I came out and when I retired. I also never dressed when working.

    Great Pole!!

    Unfortunately, many people are subjected to discrimination at work because they are trans. I was told that being transgender was “worse” than being gay. What does that statement mean?! Are we now “measuring” the degree of good or bad your label might be? Totally an ignorant statement and I told her so. Also, I was thrown out of a customer’s home during a sales presentation because I admited to being trans when asked. Society is slowly becoming a little more accepting with time, people are not as prejudice as they were during the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, but theres alot of room for improvement!
