National Coming Out Day: When I came out as transgender.

March 10th, 2016

“I have decided to make this public because it is something I have had on my mind for several months, and I can’t seem to stop thinking about it.

I started doing drag about 8 months ago, and the minute I started doing drag I felt that I was more comfortable, more happy, more confident, and more myself when I was doing drag. When I wasn’t in drag I didn’t feel the same about myself. I didn’t necessarily hate my body, I just didn’t feel myself. I didn’t feel comfortable. I felt I was missing something.

I have always been androgynous, I have always dressed more feminine than masculine, I dress how I want and I never really look at clothing as a girls or boys thing. I look at clothing as clothes, anyone can wear anything they want (as long as it actually fits lmfao) but this leads to me a revelation about myself.

People have asked me if I consider myself transgender, & I would always say no because I thought I would have to hate or repulse my body to be trans, but I’ve done a lot of thinking, and I mean A LOT, I have talked to people close to me about this, I don’t hate my body, but I find myself more comfortable, more happy, more myself if I identify as a women.

& it’s been a very long process to come to terms with this, I know some people won’t be bothered by the fact I now have decided to identify as a woman. If you are bothered by it, you can delete me from your friend’s list and feel free to never speak to me again, I’ll be fine with that. I have to do what I need to do to be happy, and I have officially decided to transition into becoming a woman.

I fully intend to start hormones within the next 6-12 months, and I will eventually change my name, and eventually my biological gender.

I know I will get a lot of hate, that’s fine. I can handle the hate. Because at the end of the day you live once, & you need to do what’s best for yourself before anyone else.

the only people I care about hurting are my parents, but I trust them in time will come to the realization that my happiness is important.

stay true to yourself that’s my last message to anyone reading this.💕

Since coming out I have been much happier! I have started to get the help I needed and starting hormones very soon.

The process is a lot longer than I ever anticipated, but it does take time to make these types of life-changing decisions.
