So, Hi all. My introduction will be a bit jumbled as that's how my mind works.

My name is K'lynn, I'm almost 46 (and by that I mean I have a birthday in the next few weeks.) I am a married lesbian (thank you older gen for all you went through to make that possible for us). My wife is my best friend and 1 of only a handful of LGBT people I know, I kind of came out when I was 30 ( I was in a relationship with a woman and was an avid journal writer and my nosey mother read it...so yeah that was my coming out)...I FULLY came out vocally when I was about 34. I gave up trying to pass and fit in to what my "family" wanted me to be...I can't honestly say I was kind about my coming out...it was basically "This is who I am and if you don't like it, that's your issue not mine." I was shortly afterwards disowned by basically my entire family (with the exception of my Dad (RIP 3/29/16) and 3 aunts (out of 13). I have however found support and love through my in-laws who are amazing. We have 2 daughters (21 and almost 19...adopted by me and my ex-husband..es I have one of those :P , but raised by my wife and I...he left the picture completely when they were 4 and 6).

So, that's about it for me. I am here at the invite of a friend...she knows who she is. And I'm glad to be here. I would like to learn more, make friends and be as supportive as I can to my fellow brothers and sisters. The T part of our family seems to get the short end of the stick and I personally think that is wrong as you folks are the STRONGEST members of this community. I am here for each and every one of you if you want or need me.

Have a great day,
K'lynn

Hello K'lynn, welcome to Susan’s!

Nothing jumbled from what I can see ;) - and so glad you have a great marriage.  Sorry to hear  several in your immediate family are unsupportive but it sounds like you found the best solution: spend time with people who matter the most and appreciate who you truly are. 

I am also glad to be here, and really glad you joined.  See you around!

Hi K'lynn,
   I like your name. I really appreciate you being here and love your outreach of support. That goes both ways as far as I am  concerned. Through very different paths we have something very much in common. I  lived most of my life in the straight world, knew very few LGBT folks, and now would be be described as a lesbian also. I transitioned and am still with my wife. Having never been involved in any kind of lesbian culture, I don't know how well the label fits me. I am just me I think, for better or worse. My name is Moni but now that I like your  name I might spell it M'oni or M'onica. lol Welcome!
If I ever offend you, let me know. It's not what I am about.
I'm happy, tag you're it! Pass it on.

HRT June 11, 2015. (new birthday) - FFS in late June 2016. (Ugh!) - Full time June 18, 2016 (Yeah! finally) - GCS June 27, 2017. (McGinn=Yeah!) - Eye repair from FFS 8/17/17 - Nose surgery-November 20, 2017 (Dr. Papel=Yeah)

Hi K'lynn,

  I'm Laurie. As you can see the door is open so do come in. Welcome to Susan's Place. I am mtf. I went through Life doing things I knew was wrong according to everything I knew. It was a long time ago when I started secretly borrowing items of my sisters to wear. I preferred playing with girls. Things like jacks and hopscotch and jump rope. The things young boys did do. I knew it was wrong. Though in my home I can't remember ever having it be an issue. It was the society attitude of the times that taught me to be ashamed of who I was and what I enjoyed. I grew up with these internalized thoughts which has caused me to hate myself. I still struggle with this and other issues.
  I too know what it is like to lose immediate family along with everyone and everything I held dear to my heart. Being different as you no doubt know is hard. I am pleased to read that you have found family and support for yourself. I am also please to have you here in support of your friend and all of us. Thank you.

Hugs,
  Laurie
