I auditioned for a choir as a tenor yesterday and yay I actually made it into the choir.
I just came out publicly on Facebook.
Ohmygod that's huge! Congratulations!
I CAME OUT TO ONE OF MY FRIENDS AS TRANS!!!! He was so supportive and just talked me through it and really made sure I was comfortable!!!!
that's hugh, congrats. let us know what the reactions are like. i'll be doing that next year.
One step closer to having my name!
ok my turn.....
I had a meeting with my regional manager this morning about how im doing with my transition and how im doing coming back to work after my surgery etc. she told me that she's been working diligently on my behalf talking with the respectful work place people and the new corporate manager (who has some experience with persons who transition), and every one is on board, even if they don't know who the person who is transitioning is. the respectful workplace manager wants me to call her, and they are going to do a respectful workplace seminar here at the office for all staff, and my regional manager is going to meet with every person at the office individually prior to me coming out and living full time to explain what's what and about pronouns etc. they even are going to move my work so that im not in front of the office and face to face with the clients and wont have to face an ignorant client base, not every one for sure but there are enough that we don't need the extra hassle and possible confrontation. im really excited that she, and they are being so proactive and supportive
I told my best friend about how I want to experiment being adressed as male. She didn't get it at first, but a few days ago she sent me a text saying "Hey there handsome" and has addressed me like that since. Makes me feel all fuzzy inside every time
This is good, especially the last one! I'm honestly more worried about the customers than I am my coworkers...
I'm happy for you! Hope everything stays good!
OMG!!! He is the type of person you never wanna let go! If you come out to any of your other friends, I hope it all goes as well as it did with him! I'm sending all my good luck to you!
My whole family was in the living room, I was sitting on the floor with my baby brother, who I love to the moon and back a million times over. I don't remember what the context was, but he said I was his big brother and my heart nearly burst out of my chest. My dad was quick to correct him, but I didn't let that get me down. Having him call me his brother is the only thing I could ever hope for in my life.
Aww, little kids are the best.
And so begins the slow purge of the boxers...
I need to further my purge of old clothes, gotta make space for the new ones, maybe make an orginizer for my dresser drawer.
I need to buy new clothes so I have a reason to purge my old clothes
another step, and a nice/big one;
so i had my teleconference with the provincial manager of Respectful workplace, it was fabulous! it was scheduled for 10 - 15 minutes, we went an hour and a half. we covered my family history, coming out as bi, my transition to date, my goals, fears, challenges and victories. we chatted about the services and supports that are available to me as i transition. all in all she was wonderful. i could not have asked for a more positive experience this morning. still so excited for what's to come.
plus, a friend messaged me on FB this afternoon and I think it's a date? we're meeting for coffee and to listen to some music at a coffee house/lounge. I haven't been on a date in like 30 years, oh man....
I have an appointment for HRT through GenderCare on the 13th of January! I know that's still a while away but usually you only have to attend that one appointment to begin HRT providing bloods are okay so I'm so excited right now. Honestly was losing hope but this has definitely restored it for me.
might take a couple appointments, to give you time to think after you get the informed consent chat, it did for me anyway. plus they need your blood work, the doctor did the requisition at our first meeting and started me on blockers on like our 3rd time, and estrogen once she had new blood work and chatted with me about how I was feeling on the blockers for our 4th visit. it's a process. but you're on your way hun.
