If you are transgender and in a crisis situation, you can call the Transgender Crisis Hotline in the U.S. 877-565-8860 or in Canada 877-330-6366. The Trevor Project is another great place for help in a crisis situation. That number is 866-488-7386.
As I read and gather information, I will post links to articles, books, YouTube videos and more. This is a journey for all of us as we learn about what it means to be transgender. So whether you are reading up for yourself or a loved one, I hope my words provide help and hope.
There is a story behind this symbol including the transgender flag in pink and blue…I always wondered about the colors. Here’s a link to the story.
One of the key articles of clothing that transitioning FtM people need is a really good binder. In order to appear more masculine, trans* guys want to minimize the appearance of breasts. Binders can be expensive. For those fortunate enough to successfully complete top surgery, the binders are no longer needed. You can donate your binders or get one from In a Bind, a program through the TransActive Gender Center.
