So I’ve always known I was trans, from about the age of 6 I knew I was different and didn’t fit in with the girls. It wasn’t until about 14 that I could put a name to it.. transgender… I wanted so bad to come out but it was just too scary and I was more worried about how it would effect everyone around me, so I came out as a lesbian at the age of 15 and just tried to ignore it, it was successful for a while, but it was always in the back of my mind.

Now at the age of 28 I’m married and want to start a family, and it really hit me! I want to be a dad not a mum and I knew that I would have to finally accept it and come out and not worry if I was going to truly be happy.

This was at my full front of my mind before coming out and I’d seen loads of trans guys on Instagram and was so inspired, especially cause most of them were so young, and they were just out there and not caring about society and other people. This combined pushed me to come out! I have never felt more alive and never felt more myself!! My journey is just beginning

Just that.. it’s ok, it’s ok to be different! And ultimately it’s your life and you and your happiness is what matters, nothing else! And you’re not alone!
