Remote Work Eases Coming Out for Transgender Employees

For those who decide to come out as transgender, the workplace can be a big hurdle—using the bathrooms, keeping up a new appearance and dealing with reactions from co-workers.

But with many offices going remote, more transgender employees are concluding they can come out while letting their work—not their gender identity—speak for them.

I came out at work towards the end of 2019 and had briefly spoke to HR about being me at work last January

I had already started going to the office in March pretty much androgynous with plan to progress slowly

I had already updated my skype picture but no video calls allowed in my office being at home soon gave me chance to say hi to my colleagues around the world

I tend to go to the office once a week and as only a few people in the office I just started to use my correct bathroom

I'll never know for sure but has seems to have made it easier

This is a good observation but social interaction with coworkers is also a good thing too even if it's awkward for a while. Work at home might be great for a job where you have no intention of leaving, but if the next job doesn't allow work from home, then one should always be prepared for that circumstance.

One of the down sides of covid is too much isolation. I like talking to people and being out in the world. Just going out for a walk in the woods with my puppies may make a great afternoon but it's not the same as having lunch with someone. I want this covid nonsense to end soon.
