Today, I sat down with my 68 year old Mom, 74 year old Step Father, my 32 year old Sister and her fiancé (who I just met for the first time) and told them I am transgender and over the next few years I would be moving towards affirming my femininity through hormone therapy and surgery and adopting a more feminine lifestyle/presentation.
In the time since I’d admitted to myself who I was this conversation had been rehearsed millions of times and, as is often the case, things seldom go as planned. I am thrilled to say that how I imagined things would go was vastly under estimating the depth of my family’s respect and feelings towards me. Other than a few concerned questions regarding my marriage, my children, my job and my mental health it was a completely loving and accepting positive coming out for this woman!
Being able to share and learn here has been of immeasurable value and without so many of you and your stories my life would be but a shadow, a sham. I can only hope that I have the opportunity to pay it forward and the ability to ease someone else’s struggle.
Thank you for being a part of my journey, I look forward to seeing what the future has in store.
