So Hi...

I don't know if anyone is even still active in this community, as it appears the last post was back in May. I have been scouring the internet looking for some support as a partner to a transman/FTM/genderqueer dude, particularly anyone that might have kids, young kids would be even better. My partner came out to me fairly early on in our relationship and we have been navigating the waters of coming out to others and figuring out where he wants to take his transition next fairly well over the last few months. We have a 6 year old daughter (mine from my first marriage) and we have been struggling with her questions as well as how/when to tell others about his transition, how much to tell them, what questions are and are not appropriate etc etc etc.

I just so desperately want to find some people that get it, that have been on this end of the transition. We have several genderqueer/trans friends, but they are all partnered with other genderqueer/trans individuals, or partners that have always identified as straight, leaving me feeling a little...out of the loop maybe? It feels like there is this club that I am somewhat a part of, like I can sell stuff at the bake sale, but don't get to go to the meetings if that makes any sense. I would like to find my own club and get some feed back from others who have been there/are there. Anyway, if you don't like posting on LJ, feel free to e-mail me pinklilybit@gmail.com or check out my real blog Http://www.pinklilybit.wordpress.com or the LJ one I started tonight which is going to follow me through my partners transition. Whether its recognized or not, partners are going through a transition too, and we need an outlet and support just as much as our guys.

So, that was some ramble...anyway hope to speak with some of you soon!
