    • Hello,I am Michelle and I am a 33 year old pre op ts.My life as a boy was a mess.The feelings started at an early age and I thought I was a lost cause.My parents did not accept it at all when I came out when I was 14.They kicked me out and told me not to come back.Luckily my open minded Aunt Bev took me in and she would never reject me in any way.She listened and saw I was very happy about myself.Began dressing fulltime as a girl after my Aunt took me in.My life changed and I saw there was hope with me.My aunt did get me help and diagnosed with gender dysphoria.Transitioned 3 monthes after I was diagnosed.I was approved for the SRS when I was 19,I decided to keep what I was born with and it would be a regret having the SRS.I am in a relationship,have an opened minded boyfriend and his name is Brandon.He knows I am pre op,I told him before we started dating 2 years ago.I am happy with my new life as a pre op.

    • Hi everyone my name is Susan and I joined this site today. I am a lifelong crossdresser and have been out to everyone for the past 19 years. I have been a full time dresser for the past 7 months and started my transition two months ago. I know I have a long and rough road ahead of me but I am determined to go forward with this. I hope to make many friends here and also to contribute to this forum as well as learn from it. I am pleased to be here and thank everyone for accepting me.

    • March 20, 2012 1:20 PM GMT
    • Thanks for all your lovely messages and support for the documentary. The only reason I agreed to to take part was because we were promised that it would be done sensitively and portray a positive message, which I think it did. :)
      Emma good luck with everything, if you need to talk don't be afraid to message me, great news that your wife is supporting you, it makes a massive difference. xx

    • Hi. I'm an androgynous genderqueer male (if I had to define it) from Cumbria. I feel alienated by the social standards of gender roles and I think I could of benefited from being born a girl. I often wear makeup and 'womens clothes'. I'm very much 'out' about it, if I'm having a night out I put on make up and squeeze my heels on.
      I don't feel the need to go through any form of transition or go by anything but male gender pro-nouns, but I strongly empathise with trans-folk. Any TV shows about trans-issues I watch, and may get teary eyed over
      I am also hetro-romantic-asexual. There seems to be quite a few people who identify as ace who are also genderqueer.

       

      I guess I started off slowly to dicovering my gender. I always like dressing up as a kid, whether being a lady, pirate or monster. I always was intreaged by my mothers makeup and jewelry too. When I got to my teens i became aware of bands like Placebo, Manic Street Preachers, Marilyn Manson and went through a Goth Phase just to wear makeup (tho now I still really like the goth scene). My parents were worried about it at the time but now are totally cool about it all.

    • I'm Ro or Rose Ro is my in between name. I'm a 49 year old and I feel I'm TG it complicated I think you will understand. Last night I chatted to a couple of lovely supportive ladies and today instead of having my normal hair cut I showed the hairdresser a couple of pictures of cute soft short hair styles I found on the web. I did ask here to be descrete so I can brush it to fit my manish mask style. butI'm happy because its short cute and naturally soft so I have achieved some thing the first step to freeing the real me. oh and if in someof this post the spaces aremissing please forgive me mylaptop is fighting back from having a hot chocolate bath.. lol

    • Jemma-

       

      For many  years I have used a hair removal system called "soft caress" which I buy online from Hemmacher and Schlemmer.  It "fairly" gently plucks all of the hairs from my body.  I do not need to use on my face.  Always my body skin and legs are as smooth as a baby's. Such a grand feeling!  It causes a small amount of pain, but for years I have found it worthwhile.  Cost is about $95.

       

      Good plucking.

    • Hi Jaszmyn-

      I am sooo happy for you.  As you begin this journey things happen so fast.  This happened to me many years ago, and my best advice is to go slowly, but enjoy every second of these new experiences.  Savory each feeling and they will all grow.  In addition, it is really helpful to stick to your new understanding of yourself, and do not let others bully you away from your fundamental feelings and line of development. Most important, recognize and be attentive to the feelings of your loved ones around you and remenber that civil discourse with them will eventually solve all problems.  Cheers! to knowing who you are.

       

      Kisses.

    • HEYHEYHEY!! I want to start off by saying thank you for the immediate welcome and kind behavior.  My birth name is Jared but Jaszmyn sounds sooo much better :) and im 20 years old turnig 21 in september!!  This is the first time i've ever talked about myself other then to the people who are closest to me (excluding my parents).  I've lived so long in secret feeling lost and confused.  Even now I have no clue lol.  I look forward to meeting new people and hopfully start to sort everything out, because if there is one thing i've learned.  It can be very overpowering when it's just you. *kisses*
