It is difficult to be who we really are. It started for me when I was four when my mother told me I couldn’t act the way I was acting because I was going to grow up to be a man not a woman. She instructed my dad to teach me how to be a man. These lessons and coversations continued until I was 11 when my mother developed cancer. I had trouble even admitting it to myself in later years. I had a secret pain. A pain I couldn’t even share. I began cross dressing when I was 13 in private. I didn’t go out in public until 1987 in my mid 30s. Then it was only in the back of a car. I later made contact with the now defunct TSG in Atlanta in 1979. I went to several functions fully dressed. It was during all of this I met my X wife. She didn’t seem to mind that I was transgender as she had some gender issues too. We reversed roles she was corporate vp and I stayed home cooked and watched the children. She wouldn’t let me dress. I had to wait until we separated almost two years ago. I have been taking hormones since my diagnosis of GID in September 2007. It has been a rough road especially seeing as my oldest son doesn’t approve of me. There are many who don’t approve and as has been said you have not care what others say. It is fulfilling these days especially with my ability to create original fashions. I can wear new cutting edge fashion runway ready that no one else has seen yet.
As a woman who is a 51 year old MtF transsexual who has been stealth all of her life, your poem touched my heart deeply and made cry. It seems to be reflect my heart. Thank you.
Hi Kelly,Im not able to be of any real help,as i live in Australia,and our laws regarding seperation and access to children are different,I just want to wish you the best with what you are going through.Its not an easy decision you’ve made,and I can understand how you feel about the church,as I have a very religious B/inlaw who hasnt talked to me since 2005,when I came out.It must be so very hard for you to not see you children,from what youv’e written,you love them very much,and perhaps,if you have some close supportive friends,they may be willing to act as character reference’s in regard to helping you prove in court that you are still just as fit a parent as you always have been.Please dont give up,stay strong,hard though it will be,you have the same rights as anyone else Kelly,never forget that.If you’d like to make contact via email,my address is email@example.com
I do not know if Phillis Fry will talk to you as a free consultant or not. She is a big lawyer here in Houston that is Trans herself.
You may be able to find some help at http://www.tgctr.org/ If nothing out look for Cristaian she has all kinds of contacts all over.
I have 4 children and have gotten divorced. I am on OK terms with my X even though she hates this part of me. Divorce was mostly other stuff and the marriage was over before I came out to her.
I wish I could say more to help, Just know you are not alone in the struggle you face. There are many others that have had to face it too.
Here’s a few sites that might help.
I am in a somewhat similar situation. My ex has been trying to take my daughter away for some time and honestly the only thing stopping her is that she cannot afford a lawyer. But my lawyer said there are no laws in michigan preventing me from seeing my daughter… If you wanna chat you can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the Pink Essence site for a lady lawyer that might be able to give you information or help if you contact her.
