Welcome to the guild, everyone.
Before you start posting stop by and introduce yourselves.


Name: Jay
Age: 19
Location: Newfoundland, Canada
Transition status/goals: 1 1/2 years on T, planning on top surgery within the next 2 years, hysterectomy within the next year, and no plans for bottom surgery as of yet.
When did you realize/come to terms with being trans? I realized when I was 13, but at that time I was in a relationship with another transman who told me he could never see me as a man. This destroyed me at the time and caused me to fall into a pit of depression and denial. It took until I was 17 to be able to build my confidence enough that I stopped being in denial and started socially transitioning, and I'm now looking to live stealth once I move from my current town.
Anything else: I love piercings, tattoos, psychology, medicine, animals, music, writing, and drawing. My goal is to become a forensic toxicologist.

Name: Charles Alexander, Charlie

Age: 20

Location: Pueblo West, Colorado, USA

Transition Status/goals: I'm still pretty early in my transition and if I do not speak
very much I can pass as male almost perfectly, still got some work. I'm working on
purchasing a binder and a packer. I've been conversing with a therapist via email
about some information and the possiblity of a session to get a referral letter
so I to can begin T.


When did you realize/come to terms with being trans: Since I was about 12 I realized
something wasn't right but had no idea what it was. Since then I just tried to fit in as best
I could till I couldn't take it when I was 19 and I told my family I'd rather be known as a
boy. That's when I met Jonah in the forums and gave me a name for my situation and
opened my eyes to all sorts of new options and opportunities.


Anything else: Knitting is my passion, which is of course odd for a male but my dad can also
do small knitting/crocheting projects, so I see no reason why I can't either. Other then that I have
no other hobbies. I don't do sports I'm not an artist and I'm bad at writing

Name: Dylan
Location: England
Transition status/goals: just had first appointment with dr for referral. Ordered my binder and stp a few days ago can't wait for them to arrive. I wouldn't be able to pass yet mostly because of my voice but I am very masculine naturally in some ways. (once in a frock some kids says to his mother why is that man in a frock, at the time I was upset seems very ironic now!). Hoping to have hysterectomy and top surgery sooner than usual on other medical grounds which would be good (there's a history of uterine and breast cancer in my family, mom died of that last year my gran and aunt too). Coming out at work tomorrow!
When did you know: When I was 8 I walked up to my mom and said 'I'm a boy now'. Wasn't until I was about 13 I understood it better. Parental reaction kept me in the closet for some time though.
other stuff: I love writing, painting, drawing, reading, mythology, animals, science, I work in a museum.

That's very true. smilies/icon_smile.gif I just want the best for my members to keep active. If you have any post ideas, feel free to go ahead and make a thread. Until I get some sub-forums all topics will go on the main forum.

Name: Seth
Age: 28
Location: Lewiston Michigan
Transition status/goals: Going to my first therapy session this coming friday.

When did you realize/come to terms with being trans?
I always felt more like a boy, and when I was 13 I created a male persona for myself on the internet. I was able to be who I felt I should be. It wasn't until I was 18 and living in Florida that I watch somthing on tv about transgender people that it all came together.
I came out to my parents as trans a year ago at thanksgiving dinner. I had changed my nametag at work before that and was going by Seth in public for going on 5 years now. My parents kinda had an idea of where I was going before all this. I had gotten male as Seth for years.
So for about 5 years now I have been living as Seth and close friends do refer to me as male and Seth. I start therapy really soon so I'm excited about that.
Anything else: I'm a tattoo artist and profesinal artist, also love painting and hanging with my friends. Love animals and own a few cats, even though none of them live with me because my landlord won't allow the cats.

Name: Ryan though everyone online just calls me Non or Nas.
Age: 25 since Oct 6th
Location: Montana, USA
Transition: I haven’t started anything… There are too many things my therapist is worried about. However, I have come to the idea to just agreeing to hormone treatment and just settle.
Realization: First, I think I need to explain that I have split personality disorder. Along time ago, my host started to pretend to be a boy when she was about 14. As the years went on, I began to take form and now control the body. Both of us don’t feel right in our body and want to change into a male. Though, she’s worried about how things will look and be as a full male.
Anything Else: I work in a funeral home… I’m into writing but it’s mostly romantic and normally smutty –coughs- I enjoy doing graphics and formats (for threads on gaia or rp layouts) – Reading yaoi – Taking photos –sewing … Um a lot more in my profile

I whent to my first therapy session today, and because I have lived as a male for so long or identiied as male since i was kid, my doctor feels comfortable already talking about doctors and treatment. I go back next friday for a letter of protection, incase anyone bothers me for useing the men's room and whatnot, and to talk over my goals and treatments.
I'm so happy right now. I'm not all alone either. a recent friend I made at a comicbook con came out as trans not too long ago, and he is calling doctors today and starting all his transitioning at the same time.
I'm going to my parents in a few hours to fill them in. My mom was expecting all this to come much later. I had told her 3 months or 3 sessions at the least before doctors and treatment even came up, but for me it was one session. So I have to prepare my parents for all this.
