When I first came out to myself as trans and started figuring stuff out about my gender, I was confident I would never, could never come out. Maybe to a few of my closest friends, but never to my family, my school, to my work. I’d never start hormones or change my name or get surgery and this was just going to be my secret and I was just going to suffer and this was my life now.
3 years later, I have come out to my family, and my friends and Facebook and very recently work. I’ve started hormones and everyone I know is using a name I feel comfortable and I’m feeling like… I might just make it after all
