I am looking for (18-24) year old trans and gender non-conforming people that will be willing to take part in a brief questionnaire about their high school experiences.
Please click the link below:
I’ll also be going back and answering our backlog of questions as much as possible. <3
Alrighty everyone. Kai has relinquished his duties on here, but I still want to be a resource here as much as necessary! We still get questions everyday and the importance of a positive space on here is important!
I’ll be brainstorming ways to make this place livelier and even more supportive over the next few weeks.
So be on the look out and bear with me during this… *ahem* transition period! <3
P.S. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

Transgender Law Gets Its First Treatise - From the American Bar Association -
The first-of-its-kind guide from the American Bar Association offers a roadmap for navigating the legal issues that touch many aspects of life as a transgender person.
Among the complexities of gender transition, legal issues abound. And now transgender people and their attorneys have a landmark guide to the shifting terrain of transgender rights.
The American Bar Association’s new 313-page treatise, Transgender Persons and the Law, is intended to educate both transgender persons and the legal practitioners who represent them. Written by transgender lawyer Ally Windsor Howell, the book addresses laws and court cases in a variety of areas, including housing, military service and veterans benefits, family law, healthcare, education, employment, immigration, and criminal justice. Howell also details the legal documents transgender people should understand in order to change names, birth certificates, and gender identification—a DVD is included with a complete set of these forms for all 50 states and Washington, DC.
Anonymous said: Has any trans* man ever decided to stop taking T within the first year because they realized that, for whatever reason, they didn't want to transition anymore? Do you think they were treated negatively because they changed their mind?
I don’t know anyone personally, but perhaps T.R.A.N.S. followers can shed some light on this particular subject?
Anonymous said: I am a 20 year old FTM i am not out to my family or anyone at all. I have an ex girlfriend who i love and who still loves me. I father her son, but we have just joked about me being his dad even though she doesn't know about me. I use to tell my family as a child i was a boy, but they thought it was phase and always told me otherwise. I want to come out to her and my family, but i just don't know how i would do it or how they would feel about it. How you would approach this?
Hope this helps you!
I must unfortunately bid you all adieu. As you may have noticed recently, I started a blog on Wordpress that is more closely tied to the work I do in person. I have been finding that Tumblr does not serve my blogging needs as it once did, and I spend less and less time using it. I rarely even use my personal account for more than private posts and reblogging the occasional GIF. It’s not fair to represent myself as someone who is available as a resource on Tumblr any longer.
I will answer the questions I received as of 11PM on the east coast of the U.S., and then I will be leaving.
Farewell, goodbye, auf wiedersehen,
The next series of posts will focus on questions I have frequently been asked during workshops and training sessions over the last few years. Â There are questions about sex, coming out, surgery, an…
