When I was first coming to terms with being transgender, it was a huge part of my life and it was all I could think about for a while. But now that I’ve accepted it a bit more and settled down, it’s not such a huge part of my life, which is quite nice actually, because I can think about other things!
Yeah well it was really unsettled at first. I took a long time to figure out exactly what my gender was and I’d been questioning it for a very long time. About a year ago I thought I was non-binary and now I’ve sort of settled down and I don’t have to think about it all the time anymore, because it’s just kind of obvious to me now, but wasn’t before I think.
I think I’ve known I was bi-sexual for a lot longer than I’ve really comes to terms with gender. That’s a lot older in terms of identity. In the past my sexuality was the big thing I focussed on and then I sort of figured that out and then moved on. Being in a community where most people I know are attracted to the same gender as them, in some way, it’s become much less of a big concern for me, because everyone understands it really.
