Hello again everyone! It's odd reading my own posts from four years ago here. Since then I've split up from my ex, who turned out to be a nasty piece of work, and have a lovely new partner I've been with since summer 2013. Oddly enough, he's straight but he's far more of an LGBT ally than my bisexual male ex, who was firmly in the closet and sort of trying to drag me in there too. Whereas my beloved came to an LGBT picnic with me when we'd only been dating for a month, and proudly pushed my wheelchair at Pride, the first Pride I'd been to in over a decade. I'm already thinking about what to wear to this year's Pride, since I've realised that sitting in a wheelchair is not the greatest view of your tummy - the photos from last year were a bit of a shock.
If there are any trans guys floating about, question on behalf of a friend: is it worth waiting until they've lost a bit of weight before starting T, or should they just go for it? I hear that testosterone can make binding trickier in terms of causing breathing problems sometimes, and I imagine that's easier if you have less of a chest fo begin with.
Lovely story from another friend, who is straight but whose sister is bi. When he was a child, his parents sat him down to explain to him that...some people are homophobic. If only my parents had been like that! He has a really lovely family.
