@ Michael Alexander:
Mike, you're talking about Orlando, Florida, I presume, right?
Man, I lived in Florida for 30 years. Let me give you two excellent contacts that are bound to help you out.
First, there is "The Watermark" which is the LGBT Community newspaper for Central Florida generally but specifically is in Orlando itself. Call or e-mail them. Don't be shy. They'll help you, man. Here's their link:http://www.watermarkonline.com/
Second, even though these people are actually in Pinellas Park (Saint Petersburg/Tampa), Florida, they know the Florida LGBT Community really well, are very helpful and are open to helping people like you. At this place, you can either e-mail or contact Pastor Joyce at the church itself or Dr. Kathleen L. Farrell (My original gender counselor) in the church annex. Don't be put off by the word "church." These people are cool and are NOT fundamentalist nutso types. Here's the link to Christ the Cornerstone Church ... specifically a LGBT Church. It's not a LGBT-friendly church ... it's a LGBT Church ... period! Here's their link:http://christcornerstone.com/
These people can and will help you, man. Just reach out to them. Hope this helps. Good luck.
If you want to get more social and meet people you might like, these two outfits can help you.
