What a task!

Someone wrote…

As a 63 yr old man that wishes he was female instead of male, I need a way to meet other people like me. What a task! I feel overwhelmed and am very afraid most of the time. Someone please talk to me.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    One fundamentally new thing about the internet is that you can find other people like yourself without having to risk coming out.

    We’re out here, late blooming nonbinary or other kinds of trans* folks.

    I am a 56-year old man who wishes he had been born a woman.

    I have the same problem that you have.

    I want to be a FEMME male, but I am in the closet. In the San Francisco Bay Area, a amab can be openly gay/bi/trans, but it is still not acceptable to be FEMME.

    Talk to me, PLEASE.

    Hi Anon:
    I know exactly what you are going through. I am a 59 year old male who has been been femme for my entire life. I find that it’s easy to BE femme ( that’s just what I am), the problem is being ACCEPTED as femme. It’s hard to come out of the closet when people keep pushing you back into it.

    In the city where I live, there’s a gender nonconformist group at a local LGBTQ organization that has been very helpful to me. Perhaps you can find one if SF. I would also be very happy to be chat friends with you. Please feel free to email me anytime.
    Take care,

    PS: I’m still deciding on a femme name. I was thinking about Joni (as in Joni come lately). What to you think?
