Hi,I am Allyson and I am transgendered,was not easy at first.I live and dress 24/7 as a woman since I was 15.Came out when I was 15 and rejected by my own bio parents.It was rest of my family members that rejected me too and basically kicked out.Luckily I have my adoptive parents that brought me in and love me for who I am seeing I have a future never giving hope on me.

Re: Hi

Salutations, comrade.

I'm always thrilled to see more MtF individuals. (Not that I don't love everyone equally)

I'm sorry your parents were jerks. You didn't need them anyway, and I'm glad you were lucky enough to find loving adoptive parents.

Penny : You know, like, what's his deal? Is it girls? Guys? Sock puppets?

Re: Hi

Welcome to EC. I am sorry to hear that your family did that to you, but I am happy to see you have found yourself a loving home. You are among friends here. As a fellow T-Girl, I'll be happy to give you any advice you need, as I am sure will the rest of our fellow T-girls here on EC. Welcome, and it's a pleasure to meet you.
As I sit here in my cage, I gaze out from between the bars, wistful, imagining the feel of wind under my wings.
