I have to be honest, I’m scared.
I’m a transman, and I recently turned 21 so I’m old enough to go to bars. I love dancing with people, male or female, and I guess I was naive to assume it would all be ok for me. I’ve realized that a lot of straight guys assume I’m a girl when I dance with them, sometimes in a very, let’s say “intimate” way, then comes the moment when they find out I’m a guy (either from me or a friend uses male pronouns).
The last time that occurred nothing serious happened, but the look on the guys face… it made me realize that if I party in the wrong place I could get killed. I really could get killed. But I like partying and I do it responsibly and I’m not trying to “trick” anyone, so why should I be punished for it? I just want to have a good time like anyone else.
What’s your experience?
