Welcome Allyson. I think I posted first also before I introduced my self.
I am glad that there are many more TG people here on the forums. I have posted before that my ex-husband is TG, and that he never came out officially.(He did go by Micha for a while, but only to me and the TG group forum.) I was very saddened that I embraced my lesbian identity, but he still chose not to embrace his identity.
It's really hard to be gay anyhow, and if your BI or TG it gets multiplied 100 times over. This year I boycotted the Womyns festival here in Michigan, due to it's "women born women only" policy.(I just became aware of it this year!) It offended me that 'certain' gay people were not welcome there. There is NO reason to not be inclusive. We have been judged by the hetero community and we are no better than them, we judge also.
