Oliver , you are brave and welcome here .
I am mtf trans and my journey is quite new . Your true self is so incredibly important , to know and to cherish . Safety for you mentally and physically is equally important . Peoples reactions will vary and that needs to be accepted and kept in mind .
I have come out to some people who are close to me ( and health professionals ) . Am happy yet surprised with some reactions .
Quite a while ago Mspurple had in a post a link to a you tube video . I have used it to help educate some that were unaware of the gender spectrum , that has opened some up to searching for more understanding .
LUKA " The Gender Code " . I have found this very useful .
Hope this helps a little ( or a lot ) we are here for you . Support is key right now .
Huge hugs and let us know how you are going .
Love and peace , Jo
