    • thank you everyone that has welcomed me so far

      it makes me feel so happy to know im not alone (eg able to talk to people in simillar situations)

      my partner sarah said she wants to sign up aswell to gain a better understanding over what info iv given her as it was hard for me to explain to her how i feel and why i feel like i do.

      i only come out a few weeks ago to her officially allthough i think she knew i was a little dif to her previous "male partners"

      shes already jumped into the idea of me been her girl friend already miss lola'may armstrong and seems to be looking upto the prospect that she will be going out with another women

      although im out to her and my Dr im not out to the rest of the world my current residents eg with my mam is not the ideal place as my mother is old fashioned thinking person and doesnt accept ppl like me and has on many ocasions made clear not knowing how upset it made me feel :S so she will most likely be the last to know

      my plan is once iv moved in with sarah this year then im going to transission to full time and go from there

      A warm welcome to all new members, I have been a member since September 2011 and forum moderator since December 2011; I have found the site very friendly and worthwhile and quickly made new friends, and soon upgraded to full membership.

       

      Some of you may wish to expand on your own experiences, if so you may add your own story to this forum.

       

      You will be able to make new friends and obtain advice and support from other members who are always willing to help. You are invited to join us in the Chat Room, - it is usually busy during the evening- and into the small hours (U K Time) – it can be both fun and informative, all be it a bit hectic at times (it is sometimes called the mad house) but you will soon get into it and join in. It can be found at -http://gendersociety.com/pages/chat. Or under Community features -second down. It is also worth exploring the forums as many of them contain lots of useful tips and advice, answering many of the questions newcomers ask

       

      If you are new to the scene don’t worry as many others have gone before, if you have any questions just ask, someone will always be able to help. Finally I hope you enjoy your time on the site.

       

      Rosie

    • Hi! I am Vanessa, currently trans-woman pre-op. I have been on hormones for about 2 years and been living as a woman for a year with the exception of work. April 8th I will be coming to work as a woman, I am a bit nervous of doing so. I am also on the assessment waiting list for government funding for bottom surgery which happens in late May. I am quite open and love to talk, stop by and say hello!

    • March 3, 2013 7:44 PM GMT
    • Warm Greetings!

      My name is Danielle Lavender, and I live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my loving supportive boyfriend. This is the first Transgender support site that I have ever been a part of, and I just wanted to say hello to all my TG sisters and brothers out there!

      I am very friendly, open minded, and a bit silly sometimes, but I am a good and steadfast friend. I enjoy fellowship with friends; and sometimes spend time with them at the mall or other such locations. I also enjoy meeting others of all walks of life, creeds and backgrounds; and I also enjoy taking walks in the park, creative writing (like poetry and musings), drawing and painting, and I have many interests in LGBTQ History, World History, Literature and the arts.

      I am EXTREMELY new at the transition of becoming female, though with the support of good friends, and self-empowerment, I know that I will be successful in mirroring my outside appearance with the woman that is within.

      Currently, I haven't taken any hormones, or underwent any modification as of yet. However, I will soon take the next steps after compiling my colleciton of research and notes so that I will be properly educated in the events that are to come in my transitionary phases.

      Anyway, I look forward to meeting new friends here, and I hope that I will be a valuable supportive friend as I know that I will find ones who will be to me.

    • Hi Everyone,

       

      I'm not exactly new here but I don't think I've ever posted. My wife passed away this past November. I am still grieving. We were so much in Love. We were married for 26 years and had a set of twins, a boy and a girl. There wasn't a day that we didn't tell each other we Loved each other. We hugged and kissed everyday. I can't talk very much about her because I shake and cry very hard. I just want to say that I told her about me before we started dating and she had been supportive all these years.

       

      I hope to make some friends and also hope to find some friends that are close to me too. I live in south western Pennsylvania.

    • Through the help of a great therapist I have come to total acceptance that I am a crossdresser and homosexual. My wife and I, mainly my wife, have decided we need to divorce. She is not angry about the dressing or gay but more about the dishonesty. She also says she cannot put up with the dressing and knows she can’t fight the gay part. Also I told her that I have never been sexually attracted to woman and mainly played the role that I was raised to play. I also realize that this was real weak on my part not to be honest to her or myself sooner. I will be living in the basement for awhile because of financial reasons and it also gives us the time to deal with the kids. The kids know we are divorcing and my 15 year old daughter knows about me being gay but not the CD side. We are not telling my 12 year old son either part at this time. We are both in therapy and also are recovering alcoholics so we have that support also. I will be coming out to my family after the holidays; my younger sister is the only one who knows the whole story. As painful this is for everyone, I realized I cannot give my wife what she needs and deserves, and I will never be happy with myself. I hate myself for hiding this for so long and not being the real me but I need to let everyone close to me who the real me is. 


      Love

    • Hi Everyone.  I was tring to figure out how to introduce myself.  This is something I wrote a back in February of this year during one of my high points on this roller coaster ride.  I think this is still true for the most part, except that slowly but surely I am moving to the point of really coming out to my family and beginning to live my life in a way that the outside world sees me for the girl I am on the inside.  When I hit the low points I come back to this and it helps put me back on course.

       

      I am Elizabeth
      I am a beautiful person
      Inside and outside
      Even if my outside looks like someone else
       
      I have just become aware
      Of whom I really am
      Who was always living inside of me
      Who I kept hidden from the world
       
      I love myself
      I love who I am
      I am a beautiful girl
      Just waiting to shine to the world
       
      I am just learning
      To express myself
      I am vulnerable
      I have to keep myself safe
       
      Part of me is old
      But part is very young
      My emotions swing back and forth
      So please be patient with me
       
      Change is constant
      Change is good
      I am already changing
      Even if I am not ready
       
      I can’t stay hidden anymore
      But I can’t sacrifice my other life
      I am not ready
      To hurt those I love
       
      If you can love me for what I am on the inside
      If you can keep me safe
      Then you can enter my world
      And be my friend
