My son is the only one in his family who is transgender.
My partner and I are the only ones who don’t have children who have been born this way.
I don’t consider myself a trans person.
But I’m the only person who identifies as transgender.
My son and I met in middle school when we were students in a local Catholic high school.
He was bullied and harassed, and we were forced to change our names.
Our family and friends were not supportive.
So we decided to come out to him.
My son was 18 at the time, but I was 26.
We decided to tell him about his birth gender, and then we went to a conference at a local university.
The first time I told my son about my birth gender he was surprised, but eventually he accepted.
My husband is the most supportive of our son’s transition.
He believes that if he ever needed to ask someone to change their gender, they should be able to do so on their own.
He told us he felt that I was being overly sensitive and that I should have listened to my son’s opinions.
He felt that the school’s transgender policy was unfair and should be changed to include transgender students.
We have had some difficulties getting a job.
My husband has been a professional who had a successful career as a software developer before becoming a teacher.
My other son, a high school student who has been working in a nearby school, has been unable to find work.
I am in a constant state of being in debt.
I have spent many months living on the streets.
I do not have a job, and I am currently homeless.
I am not the only transgender person in our family.
I know there are other transgender people who are also in this situation.
But the majority of us who are transgender do not identify as transgender, and many of us don’t know our true gender.
Some of us have been using the pronoun “they” for years, others have never heard of the word.
We are living in a society where we are told to conform to the gender norms of others.
Some people have expressed their own discomfort about being transgender.
Others have been forced to take hormones or surgery to become the opposite gender.
I understand the fear of coming out to our family, but the fact is, I don�t feel I should be ashamed to live as who I am.
I know I am not alone.
We have all felt like this at some point in our lives.
There are countless stories of transgender people around the world.
There is no one who has always felt this way, and no one to whom we can turn for support.
The only support that is available to us is the support of other trans people.
I believe that the most important thing we can do to prevent more people like me from coming out is to make sure that we all know that our voices are heard.
