    Hi,

    I'm new here. I was perusing the forum and a post caught my attention and I felt I needed to sign up.

    I'm MT?, I don't know that I have a label other than transgender. I haven't quite landed on a label for myself yet and I don't know that I have to have one.

    I recently only was able to acknowledge and accept that I was transgender. I had avoided reading anything about it or having the conversation with anyone for pretty much my entire life until just a few months ago. When I finally started reading I was able to gain the language to articulate this about myself. So, of course I've always been this way(which is to say I've always been me), I just didn't know quite how to verbally express it.

    Now I'm beginning the coming out process.

    With all the best things in life labels don't matter.

    (&&&)Just find where your comfortable, and if you feel you need a label, figure it out later.
