Personal Stories

What's on this page?

These are the personal stories of every day folks relaying their lives, their transitional processes, and whatever else is important to them. Often times, the best way to know ourselves is through the stories of others.

Personal Websites and Stories

Although this section is divided into those that are understood to be transitioning from female to male bodies (labeled FTM) and those that are transitioning from male to female bodies (labeled MTF), we understand that these labels and definitions are not completely accurate for everyone involved. Please respect the individuals' experiences and stories as their own. We are also looking for stories that reflect experiences of gender-variant folks that are not going through physical transitions, or who are but do not identify as FTM or MTF (ie. are more gender-fluid/genderqueer), as well as a couple more MTF stories.
