I am an intersex transgender woman just beginning her transition.  I have been married for 18 years to a wonderful woman who supports and loves me, and I have two wonderful children, including a transgender daughter.  I am educated, have advanced degrees, and was a contact sports junkie for most of my life, always trying to live up to the masculine ideal and never quite fitting in.  I’m a music and movie nut, and still an active athlete.  Becoming myself changes none of those things, except to say that my hope is that it will soften my edges, and help me to be the person I was always meant to be.  This blog is for me to chronicle my journey, but if it helps others in anyway then that is never a bad thing.
