    Hi my name is Jamie, 32, from Virginia. I recently (2 days ago) came out as transgender to my partner and my best friends respectively and I was moved to tears (ugly tears at that) when they both said they loved me no matter what. So here I am at the very absolute beginning of my new life and I can’t be more happy! I feel more free and comfortable now than I ever have been now that my burden/ shame is no longer that, but Jamie. A confident woman who has always been inside but never allowed out until now. Anyway I hope to make new lasting friends here and I can’t wait to hear from you all!

      Jamie:

      Your experience parallels many here. There is nearly always concern about the reaction of family, friends and co-workers. However, the surprise is often that the outcome is better than we thought; in many cases, MUCH better. And the thing is, those who have a bad reaction should probably never have been considered friends or family that you wanted to associate with. Anyway, I say this not to minimize the possibility of negative reactions; just to know that it isn’t as prevalent as we fear.

      Jamie, it is always nice to meet someone else in Virginia. Hope you get a chance to drop by the chat rooms. They are a lot of fun, quite interesting and there is so much to learn and share. 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 you see you chatting again soon. Hugs, Michelle

          Jamie, thanks, I just joined. Let’s see; there are 152 members in Virginia, 94 in Maryland, and 10 in DC. That would be quite a group….. Hugs, Michelle

            I know I was just looking at that. That’s what I want, a big group that no matter where any of us are there is someone close by. I’m a firm believer in community and family and that’s what I want to create. A family.
