Transgender Awareness Week 2020 November 13th-19th

Only just found out about this wonderful thing today i was originally a boy, from an young age i was very unhappy about my identity and lived with it til earlier this year when i woke up one morning and said to myself "i don't want to be a male any longer" "i don't want to be unhappy anymore". I started my journey as a non-binary with buying genderless clothes, makeup, got my ears pierced (getting my septum pierced soon) and now currently in the process of getting my name changed legally, i've never been happier and am very proud of who i am. This awareness week means a lot to me as i'm part of a wonderful community that doesn't judge and loves me for who i am which makes me so happy, i would love to hear from other non-binary, transgender etc users on here how you started your journey and what this awareness week means to you. Love you all ❤️

@Agenderandproudofit I found out I was trans after years of something not feeling quite "right". It took me a long time to find the words to describe myself, and a lot longer to realise that they applied to me.

Weeks and days like Transgender Awareness Week help make me feel safer being who I am.
