Well I did it

Posted 01-02-2010 at 07:15 PM by Lewis Luminos

I finally plucked up the courage to come out as trans to my partner. It wasn't really planned, but my daughter went out to a party, and will be staying out overnight, and so it seemed a good time, with no-one else here.

I told him I had this secret, I told him how long I'd been hiding it, and why I'd kept it secret for so long, and then I just told him everything.

He took it AMAZINGLY well.

One thing he said was that he's not surprised, and picked out a few things he'd noticed from the past (including some things from way back, even before I was clear on it myself).

He says he's opposed to me medically transitioning (which I expected) but he is going to let me at least get the ball rolling and see a GP, and get an appointment with a speciallist.

I've asked him if he'll come to the open meeting of the trans support group in February, and he said yes.

I said that tomorrow I wanted to go through all my drawers and cupboards and throw out, for once and all, my old girly clothes. He said he thought that was a good idea.

I'm still reeling, really. The relief is just incredible.

I have a feeling that 2010 is going to be a good year.

    That is really wonderful that your partner is so supportive of you.

    I am familiar with the feeling of relief of finally getting something important (and difficult to broach) into the open.

    I hope you will find continuing support and love as you continue your journey.

    Congratulation Lewis- if your partner would like to talk to me about it since I am going through it with Rox I will be glad to communication with him. It was just 11 months ago that Rox finally came out to me and it took alot of courage on her part as she didnt know how I would take it - it has been a true blessing to our relationship although there have been low spots but that is true of any relationship - happy new year and what a great one you have to look forward to now that you have been honest! What a relief isn't it?
