Gender Wins: Recall a happy memory of when you felt most comfortable in your gender or most accepted as your gender by those around you.
I bought some rolls at a bakery counter. When the guy handed 'em over the counter, he said, "Here y'go, miss." He didn't act like there was anything unusual about me, just identified that I was female and addressed me appropriately.
Gender Struggles: Tell about a time when circumstances would not allow, or you had to make sacrifices, to remain true to your gender.
My first year in transition, my income dropped $30k. I nearly starved to death, and had to move back in with my parents... who weren't thrilled with the arrangement, or with my gender change.
Humanist Involvement: Suggest something the humanist community could do to make a positive impact on your personal quality of life.
Just accept the gender presentation I offer as my gender. Treat me as you would any other woman.
How You Identify (optional): Name, age, gender, location, ethnicity, anything you deem relevant.
