Passing and gender dysphoria

(1/2) > >>

Hi y'all,

I am 31 years old, living in The Netherlands and started transitioning a year ago (mtf).

Currently I'm having a hard time of finding a GP that would describe me hormones so everything is still pre-HRT which means I get a lot of gender dysphoria as of late and I'm just aching to start with hormones. Gender clinics waiting time here are more than 2 years and that is just crazy. Currently trying to find a solution in the meantime. Also not having a queer community or friend group (including transgender individuals) is making me feel quite lonely as of late.

Via the below link you can find some pictures of me. Do you think I look feminine/female or is it masculine? Do you still think that the hormones will have a significant effect on my face? How do you all deal with dypshoria?


Hi Nile,
You look great, very feminine. Holland and Germany are in very similar situation when it comes to transitioning.  I've been looking for a therapist for over 6 months and anyone who is focusing on dysphoria is booked up to two years. Without psychiatric/therapist approval, there is no chance of getting hrt let alone surgeries. I started doing whatever is possible - hair removal and slowly doing social transition. I also know no other trans people, even though Hamburg must be full of them. There are done self help groups that you can find on Facebook and just getting out to meet people alike might do you good.

I wish you all the best in your journey.
