I get a lot of DMs from people who are early in transition and want advice. Over the years, I've developed my go-to tips in the hundreds of conversations I've had. I hope these help!
This is so great! Even though I personally liked my therapist, I think one of the best things going to see them is that they introduced me to a support group where I could talk to and be around other trans women at different points in transition. I wholeheartedly recommend it if you can.
Love this piece... you’re spot on as always. Each of us have such unique journeys. Mine was deliberate and at times painfully slow -- literally years in the making. And then, having formulated a plan of action, I finally I pressed “go.” Staying true to my inner voice has been key and knowing you all exist and are there (virtually) gives me great strength. ❤️
I love you Erin! These tips are great & I will share this article around. I also want to say.. many of these tips are valid for anyone. Good ideas to affirm our identity in general. Thanks!
Every single one of these points were true for me as well. Reading this 2 years ago would have helped a lot. Thank you so much for putting this out there for those who need to see it.
Joy really is waiting out there for those of you here about to take that first step.
Stop encouraging normal people to transition. For the love of god. I’m trans and I suggest to try repression and even conversion therapy. Transitioning should be an absolute LAST RESORT and only allowed if certain criteria are met.
Keep up the good work Erin we are now a paid subscriber I am so tired of all this hateful legislation
