Greetings and salutations! I’m Jacqueline a 22 year old trans girl from Wisconsin (Kewaunee County). I’m relatively recently out (near the end of July) and started hormones two days ago! I could not be happier right now. I’ve kinda known I was trans since I was 15 but never really pursued it and when I graduated high school it just floated to the back of my mind. At the beginning of this year I started really thinking about it again because COVID allowed for a lot of inner thought. I started seeing a therapist around the end of April and now here we are. A little more about me on a more personal level is I enjoy writing, gaming listening to music and making YouTube videos. My favorite kind of music is Film Scores and my YouTube channel I actually compile theme songs from films, tv and games. I’m so happy to have been invited to this community and hope to meet lots of interesting people. Oh one more big detail about me is I’m visually impaired.

Welcome to TransRefuge Jacqueline! You have come to the right place. Congratulations on starting your hormones. It was a pleasure meeting you last night on Zoom, and I hope to see you come back again soon. We have a lot of very friendly and helpful folks here with similar likes as you, and I'm sure you will find TR to be a safe and informative home. See you around the forum.

Enjoy!

Hey Jacqueline, (what a nice name!)

Welcome to TransRefuge! Nice to meet you. :) I'm Mim from Germany.

It's great that you knew you're trans at such a young age. I think, many people here - including myself - took waaaaay longer to realize it. Congratulations, that you recently started with HRT. 🥳

By the way, I love writing, too. What are you writing?

End of high school until end of college we’re the only years I managed to almost not think about the gender dysphoria that was tearing me apart internally. I worked a full time job and a weekend part time job throughout college and between school and working more than full time, I was so busy and so exhausted that I was pretty mentally and emotionally numb.

Welcome, @JacquelineHope! Sorry I missed you in the Zoom meetings. Time zones and the need to maintain regular sleep habits mean that I can only stay on for the first hour.

It is nice to have some younger folks here. I am 67, 5 years on HRT, and a year and a half post-GCS. I am a retired RCAF pilot and IT girl, living on the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides.

Regards,
Kathy

Jacqueline I think your baby was the hit of the party last night. It seems like everyone just loved having her there. I hope she can make a cameo again next week.

Welcome @JacquelineHope – I think your name is Gorgeous!

I’m 57 and joined TR at the end of June. I think you'll find that there are a great many kind and supportive members, and I've found the experience of participating here to be incredibly helpful. My plan is to go full time socially as soon as possible, but unfortunately I am severely immunosuppressed, so the pandemic is delaying this for me. Although as you mentioned in your introduction, the only good thing about the pandemic is that it's given me a lot of time to think, to ground myself, and to prepare for my transition, and having a resource like TR has been invaluable for me as I do this.

I first fully accepted I was a transgender woman in 1989 when I was 25, but have been unable to transition until now for a whole variety of reasons. So I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am that you are able to get started with your own transition now, and Congratulations on starting HRT! That's so incredibly exciting! I’m currently 21 1/2 weeks into MTF HRT, and the experience has been absolutely life changing for me. I’ve never been happier.

I’d love to check out your YouTube channel, if you’d be comfortable sharing the link. I have a degree in art with a studio emphasis in time based art forms and have a passion for all kinds of music, so perhaps we might share some similar creative interests?

Since you’re a writer, something tells me that you might enjoy this:


I'm so happy that you're here!

Namaste Jaqueline.

Hi Jacqueline,

Welcome to the Refuge. Like many, I knew I was different at a young age, but it took me a lot longer to understand why. I am 3 times your age and just received my first prescription for estrogen, but I had GCS earlier this year. I had prostate cancer and I have been off all hormones since March 2020. Congratulations on starting HRT.

Hugs,
Mike

Hi Jaqueline, I would like to welcome you, too. I am by far the oldest person here on this forum, and I am also intersex, which means, I did not go through all the dysphoria stuff, trans people have to endure.
I was made into a male surgically, but over the years I developed into the female I was born as.
I now live as a woman for several years again, and enjoy it way more to be a woman than I ever enjoyed my male life.
