I haven't used this blog in a long time and its incredible how much has changed in three and a half years.

Three months after writing the last post, in March 2010, I went to my gp to ask for referral to a gender clinic.

New Year

Posted 01-01-2010 at 08:55 AM by Lewis Luminos (The Gingerbeard Man)

In the run up to this new year I've found myself making several new resolutions, and I'm approaching this year with much more of a sense of excitement (and trepidation) than previous years.

The main thing of course, is that I have to come out to my partner about the whole gender thing, and I have to do it soon (because I NEED him to come to the local trans meeting at the end of February) but I still have no idea how to do it or how to cope with the fallout.

But then I'm...

I've been having some fun with my new alt, and discovering a very nice place for taking atmospheric photos - Chakryn Forest. I think I've taken what's probably my best snapshot to date (the last one below)

Many people I know online, know that I am transgendered in RL. It's not the same story in my offline life, I am basically not out to ANYONE, except people in the trans support group I go to, who know why I am there and are all transgendered themselves.

I live as masculine a life as I can manage, but I've not yet begun any sort of treatment, and I still go by my legal, female name. But as time goes by it gets harder to keep the secret and the desire to actually go for treatment has...
