Introduction
« on: July 15, 2020, 06:43:25 pm »
Hi,

   I'm Jonathan, 24yo cis-male from Brazil. I'm completely new to anything related to gender, and by "anything" I mean it xD. Anyway, being a cis-male white guy raised in a very conservative family made me a complete ignorant to the LGBTQ+ community and I only became aware of that when I met a trans friend years ago, she opened my eyes to that community and, despite being oblivious to me at the time, I was already involved in the community in some way or another. Despite living in a very cis-normative society, I've always tended to broke some rules when it came to dressing and appearance in general, being androgynous made me a lover of everything female, so skirts, heels, make up etc were things that I loved but were unreachable at the same time, tks to a very ignorant mindset forced upon me since the fist time I tried to wear "female" piece of clothing. I know, it may sound silly to some of you but as I said, I'm just a cis-male guys that only recently decided to leave ignorance behind so I can't even comprehend what it means to be non-cis, that's why I'm here now, I need to learn more about that so I can make my part and make the world a better place to LGBTQ+ people. I'm sorry if I use a wrong pronoun or term, I'm newbie and it's not my intention to offend anyone here, NEVER.  :D

Welcome Jonathan!

I hope this Web site will be useful for you!    :)


Chrissy
Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that your speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
