    Hey, all. I'm 30 and finally ready to start letting myself be who I've been all along. I'm here because I have no idea where to start. One of my oldest friends has started transitioning and my heart swelled seeing her finally proud and genuinely happy. She's the bravest person I've ever met and officially the first person I've felt safe enough to come out to as trans. She suggested I find a safe place to feel out my pronouns and to help give me the courage to step out of the closet publicly when I'm ready. So yeah. Hi!

    Hi there, and welcome to Empty Closets! You have definitely come to the right place to seek support, suggestions, and share experiences. Feel free to read others' experiences. You might find some useful information in the Gender and Identity Expression sub-forum.

    Welcome. :slight_smile:

    Alex.....Hello and a great big welcome to Empty Closets! Like @Mirko said, check out the "Gender Identity and Expression" sub-forum. I think you'll find some great people there who will understand what you are dealing with. We're so glad that you found us here on EC!
