Hello everyone! I’m Sarah! I’m so happy to be here with you!
I am AMAB, but I’ve lived with a woman’s soul inside for literally decades. When I was young there was not only no way to express or share that fact with others but really no vocabulary for me to describe myself… to myself! Now, in midlife, after burying and running from myself to meet social expectations I recognize that this is how I am and I’m focused on exploring that, letting my femme self run free, and accepting myself as I am without editing or contorting myself to conform to others’ preferences. Maybe we can help each other with that, because it’s much harder than it sounds!

Hi Stephanie! Thanks for your warm welcome… I am happy to be here and I look forward to learning from you and the others about your particular experiences, thoughts, and feelings. As a person coming to terms with my trans self kind of late in life, I’m especially interested in hearing from others of “a certain age” who may have had similar experiences… For example, I am really struggling with the lack of role models or even vocabulary to describe my situation when I was young and could have taken action to explore and discover myself more freely than now (responsibilities, family, etc.) I still end up wondering if I am kind of “making it up” in my head – until I get to wear femme clothes again, when the euphoria confirms that IT JUST FEELS SO RIGHT… 🙂
I don’t know… Do you have any similar experiences? 🙂
