DAY 1: 30 Day Trans* Challenge

When did you realize the term transgender referred to you

The term itself? Well, that would have to be when I was 13 dating my first girlfriend my mom knew of. I asked her, “mom, did you know I was going to come out as a lesbian to you?” And she said, “no, honestly I thought you’d be transgender.” That’s when all my denial and suppression of who I am today slapped me in the face.
