    Hello everyone, I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself ^^.
    So I'm 19 years old and I'm currently questioning my gender identity. I thought I was a cisgender girl but now I'm not so sure about it anymore. I've never had any doubts about it before but now I feel kind of lost... It's really confusing and I can't find any answers. I don't really know who I am anymore... Also I started feeling uncomfortable about my body. I don't know how to find answers, so if anyone can help me with it it would be great :slight_smile:
    Anyway, thanks for reading my presentation and I hope you're having a great day !

    Welcome to Empty Closets. Do take some time to look around the forum and go through the threads in the Gender Identity and Expression sub forum, where you may find some useful information.

    Would it help to try to say how things have changed? In what way are you starting to feel more uncomfortable about your body?

    Thank you, I'll take a look at these threads.

    To answer you, I don't know how things have changed bu they did. I can't explain why... I started feeling uncomfortable about my chest and my hips. I have a feeling that there is something wrong... I made some research but it wasn't very helpful. I just can't find answers and it's very frustrating... I don't really know who I am anymore.

    Nyuu.....Hello and a great big LGBTQIA+ welcome to Empty Closets! :old_smile: I can remember the first post that I made on EC. I was desperate for help and I got the help that night that I so needed. I hope that we can help you in the same way that I received help. The most important thing to remember about Empty Closets is that we do care about you! We're very glad that you found us here on EC and hope that we can answer questions, give you support and provide a place to vent (as long as it's not violent!) :old_big_grin: when that becomes necessary!

    *****There are 18 different sub-forums here that you can check out and join in the conversations or start your own thread/conversation. In particular you may want to check out the forum that is titled "Gender Identity and Expression”, there are people there who have dealt with some of the same kind of issues that could be challenging you. When you have made at least 10 posts on various threads you will be able to post messages on a member's Profile Page. Just click on a member's Avatar Picture and then click on "Profile Page" in the dialogue box that pops up. You'll then be on their Profile Page and there will be a box that says: "Write Something" When you have been on EC for a few weeks and have made at least 50 posts on various forums, you can apply for Full Membership. A Full Member can send Private Messages (PM) to other Full Members and share personal contact info. Right now you can only send a PM to a Staff Member as that is always possible. Here is a quote from the Full Membership information forum: :old_cool:

    *****To be eligible you must be a member of Empty Closets for a minimum of two weeks, and have a minimum of 50 posts. These posts must be across numerous forums (Fun & Games does not contribute to post count), and consistently posted across a minimum of two weeks. You wouldn't be eligible, for example, if you registered, had no activity for two weeks, and then returned to post 50 times on your 14th day of membership.

    *****Well, as I said, we're very glad you found us! :old_rolleyes: If you have any questions at all, you can post a question on my Profile Page or send me a Private Message.
