I’ll soon change my legal name

I will change my name in December. And then apply for a changing the gender marker.

Mixed emotions. Both good and bad.

Hey Tony....I understand completely.

I'm coming to that point pretty soon, myself (in about eight weeks or so).
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.

(Yes, I'm a Canadian who served in the US Navy....)

Congratulations, I think when we do something permanent to align ourselves it is healthy to reflect on what we are doing. Many times I thought am I doing the right thing? Do I need to do this?

I liked my old name,a lot. But is is not who I am so I changed it. I love my new name too. So perhaps finding a new name you love is a way to help with the change.

I'm in that process now. My lawyer has drawn up the paperwork and plans to file early next week. I am excited to have this process done as it will allow me to change my driver's license and other IDs. Will be so nice not having to explain why my ID doesn't match who I am.
