    Hi, everyone. I'm Mindwarp. I'm a 20-year-old bisexual trans male (pre-HRT/op).

    I first tried to come out as trans when I was six. That didn't go down well. I "crossdressed" throughout my school years, but I sometimes dressed girly and went out with straight men and lesbians. I was nine when I came out as bisexual, and my family just considered me a lesbian. I went back to presenting as male full-time in late 2015, and am now out to everyone. I attend therapy at the local gender clinic and am hoping to get on the testosterone waiting list in February.

    That's about it for me! Glad to be here.
