Feels great

Someone wrote…

I came out to a very good, old friend a few days ago. It was my first outing and it was a person in real life and not on the internet.

As the nervousness and the adrenalin subside slowly I feel much more real and true to myself than before. Like I can allow the boy within me to grow up. Feels great.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    This is why I’m considering sending out some sort of vague “I have gender stuff” facebook message, at least to the people I know will be cool about it. Just so they’ll stop calling me dude, and I feel less pressure to pretend to be one.

    That’s how I felt, too. I also came out on Facebook to just about everyone I knew, and it felt so great. I’ve grown up so much since last February, it’s insane. Congrats to you!
