I came out at school!!

Yesterday my school counselor told the staff I was trans and my preferred name and pronouns. I also posted online about it. School today turned out amazing. First of all my friends and family on Facebook responded amazingly and I was jverwhelmed with the support I received. At school today it took awhile for anyone to really figure it out. To start the only other trans person at school is mtf and on her first day out wore makeup heels and a dress and I'm ftm and didn't do anything special with my clothes. Several kids got informed through out the day and it turned out amazing. The only kid I was worried about having problems with was a boy in my class who had spoken against transgender people and he aproached me today asking if he can call me mikey or mike because he is more used to saying that than Micah. All my teachers today also made a point to say my names to east once to make sure they were pronouncing it right or just to acknowledge it. I just feel so happy now.
