Transgender 101

This past Sunday, the adult education class at church featured transgender basics to members of the church. A number of people (about 20) came. Tracy, a transsexual woman , and I shared our experiences which quite different. What was really clarified was the difference between sexual orientation and gender identity. 

A number of questions were asked of both Tracy and me. Later a few people thanked me for clarifying their questions. We will have another such class in November a we get near Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Thanks for your comments about being transgender. I have been struggling with it for years; I should have started when I first noticed "symptoms" (elementary school), but didn't. Such feelings and actions (e.g. reading up on transgender issues, going to workshops) kept resurfacing every few years. But again, I never went further thinking of shame and fear.
Now,I regret not starting.
