    I finally came out today! But, only to my best friend, no one else, yet. She was really okay about it, and said she really didn't feel any differently about me, but had lots of questions which she wanted to ask, but at a later time. I just feel so good having told someone!

    That's great! This is a big first step, and it's wonderful that your friend took it so well. Here's hoping things will continue in that vein from here on, and that you'll be able to satisfy her curiosities. :slight_smile:

    That's absolutely wonderful news! It's always so nice when someone we tell is supportive and interested in getting to know this 'extra' side of us. :slight_smile:

    A few days ago, I came out to my best friend. Today, I came out to my brother. He's my only sibling in a small family. He was so understanding and supportive, I started to cry, but just a bit (I always conditioned myself not to cry, damn testosterone!).

    My father has no longer been a part of my life for almost a decade, but my mother lives with my brother (and I would take care of my mother if my brother could not). She may not be so understanding, because of her Korean upbringing, but my brother said he would try to get her to understand.

    Next step, my childhood friends that I grew up with, and still remain in contact with ever so often.

    I finally came out to my childhood friends via e-mail. We haven't been in contact much the last few years. Not sure if they'll respond or not. I have my first informed consent telepath meeting on Tuesday, I plan to come out to everyone else after I take my first HRT medication.
