Hello, I would love so much to start a Youtube channel because I love video filming and editing. I have been watching Vlogs and I really got inspired, and it would enrich my life. But the problem is I am still in the very early stages of transitioning and I feel waves of issues with identity. I am waiting for the doctors to send me a request form and it will take a lot of time.
This means that if I start with Youtube, the viewers will see me as a man. And I also feel, that it is best to use my assigned male name because I don’t want to confuse any viewers. But again that may cause gender dysphoria, which is extremely painful and could most likely lead to self confidence issues and that I would put the filming away.
Up until later years I have believed I was a homosexual man, I don’t know how common that is, believing one is homosexual before realizing the true gender identity, but people around me
know me as my male name and only 2 friends know the truth. So calling myself as my assigned name can be hard, and cause me emorional trouble.
But I want so much to start a youtube channel badly because I love the thought of being creative and doing vlogs could add a meaning to my life. Does anyone have any idea
on how to deal with the gender dysphoria/depression of using my assigned name in situations where I need to, like for instance in the youtube vlogs? I do not feel like telling the truth on Youtube all in the beginning either.
