Do you have a transgender idol? Like mine is Andreja Pejic. Happy to hear yours :D!

Pete Burns, Genesis P. Orridge and Prince are my favourite androgynes :~)

Everyone who survives gender dysphoria, transitioned or not.

 Those that transitioned openly in the past. Not just those that who spoke publicly advocating for a better future, but also those who just went about their lives openly being who they are showing their families, friends and neighbors that we are just people. Because every mind that's changed has a ripple effect that adds to greater acceptance.

You took the words out of my mouth.  Susans Place is absolutely full of some of the kindest and strongest people I've interacted with.

When all this is behind me and I'm living life as my wife's wife in actual biological and mental harmony, I will always credit the people here for the critical support I needed when I was at the end of my rope and had to confront things.  I can only hope to repay the favor and (stealth or not) continue in the footsteps by helping others start their own journeys.

Recent faves are Carmen Carrera and Youtubers like Gigi Gorgeous, Princess Joules and anyone who shares their before and after stories. Also people who have been on TV like Marci Bowers and Andrea James, and those on Discovery channel years back. I'll echo what's been said already, people here who share the same struggles as I do inspire me. I also gave a great group of trans friends who I meet with who have been an amazing support platform.
"There was a sculptor, and he found this stone, a special stone. He dragged it home and he worked on it for months, until he finally finished. When he was ready he showed it to his friends and they said he had created a great statue. And the sculptor said he hadn't created anything, the statue was always there, he just cleared away the small peices." Rambo III

Reading about Lana Wachowski initially inspired me to consider coming to terms with my inner self.

But I'm also with Cindy on this one as well.  I see so many inspiring people on this forum too!

I admire Susan, Andrea James, Lynn Conway, Melanie Phillips, and other women who gave advice, shared their experience, and provided resources on the Internet during the late 90s. Thank you for showing me the way, ladies.

Laverne Cox <3

I second this all the way!!! Andrej Pejic was my first Idol ( the dark time of our lives before O.I.T.N.B) He Is incredibly gorgeous and oh so inspirational!!!!! But Laverne Cox has got it in the bag. Sassy, strong, hilarious, loving, and of course drop dead beautiful!!! Truly an amazing Actress. Im so glad to see actual trans women playing trans women. I like transparent but god bless it give a real trans person some fame!!!! Who better to tell the stories? We've LIVED it!!! Like Dallas Buyers Club. Loved the movie but Jared Leto is a cisgendered man!!! urgggggg!! Still loved the performance but DID NOT care for his lack of recognition for the trans community. That really ground my gears.. (steps off soap box).
