    Wow, what a coincidence: this evening I’ve been looking for resources about differently-abled transgender people. I hardly found anything — does anyone have a link to share?

    Thanks for submitting this, Jessica and Joey. This is one of my favorite Genderfork pictures.

    As someone who’s first psych more or less told him that he was too autistic to be trans, this photo inspires me. I will be able to transition one day, no matter how many second opinions I need to get.

    Wow, William, what that psychologist said is so messed up. It makes no sense. It’s kind of like saying “You have slight anemia, so we refuse to diagnose you with narcolepsy.” Keep on trying until you find a sane psych!

    So glad her picture made it up here! She’ll be so happy.
