    Hi, I'm Sihoo (that's my actual name) and I'm trans male. I came out as trans when I was 15 and I already socially transitioned, but most likely I will never be able to go through HRT and SRS

    I currently live in Russia and it sucks! I'm constantly facing discrimination and nobody uses my appropriate pronouns and nobody respects my chosen name. Not only that, I was also physically assaulted twice because of who I am, so I decided to join you guys, because only here I can be my true self without fear of being hurt again and be proud of who I am

    *I don’t use a translator, so my introduction is a mess ¯\_ (ツ) _/¯

    Hello! I'm sorry you are in a difficult situation. You might still find some nearby support organizations, maybe in big cities.

    Thanks for sympathy!

    But I assure you; in the city where I live, there are no support organizations at all and (unfortunately) at the moment, I can't move to a bigger and more accepting city due to financial difficulties

    It can be difficult living in a city/province/country where you can't get physical support or access to any organizations (if any) that can help with being LGBTQ+. And I'm sorry to read that you were physically assaulted before for being LGBTQ+. That isn't nice. But I'm glad you found EC and decided to create an account.

    Online support through interaction at forums like these make a difference. Trust me when I say that. EC definitely helped me through some tough times, when I couldn't get any physical support because of the homophobic environment I live in. :slight_smile:.

    Welcome to EC. :grin:
