I’m not sure how closely TGH mirrors that of her sister site CDH but I have been a fairly active member over there for awhile and as I am now only weeks away from starting I felt today was the appropriate time to take another step in this journey.
I am looking forward to getting to know many of you in the months (and years) ahead as I begin this terrifying and exciting new life as a more whole and authentic version of me.

Hey Rei…I came over too. Was kind of wondering where I fall on the ever changing spectrum of gender and sexuality😉
- July 26, 2021 at 7:18 pm #115641
I would posit that the spectrum for either doesn’t change, but how we think about them and where we perceive ourselves to be may move around a bit. As a function of experience and evaluation, we get closer to our true selves over time.
For me, going back in time, 30 years ago I thought I was gay. 4 or 5 years later I concluded that I was actually bisexual. 18 years ago, I thought I was a crossdresser. About 10 years after that I settled into the fact that I am transgender and non-binary. The goal posts didn’t move. I just sorted out where I was between the goal posts…

That is such a simple and well put summary. That perspective, experience and ease with oneself is truly worth its weight in gold.

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing you around Haley.

Glad that you are here! I hope that the site will be just what you are looking for.
In comparing the 2 sites, since the same software is used, the sites function pretty much the same. However, there are some differences. For example, there is no section dealing with fashion and makeup here. When people have these kinds of questions, I often refer them to CDH. Not that people don’t respond here, but there will probably be more responses on our sister site.
I encourage you to complete your Profile page. It really helps other members to understand your situation, where you struggle and your goals. It will always be readily accessible and may be updated at any time if something changes.
If you would like to search for other members near you, click on Social in the menu and than Member Directory.

Thank you DeeAnn, when I registered here I thought the process went a little too quickly!

Yes, the Profile page is an important tool. Well used, it can provide insight as to where we’ve been and where we’re headed. It can be a place to note successes, difficulties and what we’ve learned along the way. Plus it is always good to periodically look back and see how far we’ve come. It is analogous to being around kids every day. We may not really notice their growth. However, if we only see them once or twice a year, their growth is quite noticeable.
So, I hope that being on the site will be helpful as you continue your journey.
