Transition Ftm Uk welcomes you all
Before you even begin to transition, you can spend so much time researching, going from site to site to find all the information you can on how transitioning from female to male happens here in the UK.
Sometimes you can be faced with not even knowing where to start, with that in mind I made this website as a starting guide as to how the process works and listing places here in the uk and abroad where you can buy ‘the essentials’ you may need while transitioning.
All sorts of thoughts ran through my mind:
- Why do I feel the way I do?
- Where do you start?
- What do you search for?
- What help is there?
The list was endless. I finally managed to get it into some sort of order, so please take some time and look through my site. If you want to add anything that I may have missed please feel free to contact me.
What is Gender Dysphoria
Gender dysphoria is when we feel that there is something missing that our bodies don’t match how we see ourselves. Gender Identity is the gender we identify ourselves as. Some of us don’t even identify as either male or female.
The feelings that we get, be it discomfort this can sometimes be known as gender dysphoria. Some of us feel that staying as we are is not enough and that treatment is looked into.
Sometimes the dysphoria can be so strong that we also live in the gender which we wish to be recognised as, rather than the sex we were born as. Which is where the name transsexual, or trans is then associated with us. Some of us then feel that our whole appearance needs to change and be more consistent with our gender identity.
What does it mean to be Transgender
Transgender or trans, or even those that identify as genderqueer are all put under an umbrella term as there is many forms of gender identity. For those who don’t wish to be seen as the biological sex we were born as, we wish to change the sex we were born in and transition into our new gender.
Whether it be changing our name using pronouns or how we dress, sometime this alone may not be enough and with the advice from therapists hormones/surgery can be given. Its about our body on the outside matching how we feel on the inside.
