After resisting for 14 months, I finally went to my first transgender support group yesterday, T Time in Glasgow. I avoided it all this time on the basis that if I was diabetic I wouldn’t choose just to socialise with diabetics. I was so wrong. I had a great afternoon which both validated my own experience and taught me new things. I’m going back next month. I learned that other transsexuals come in all shapes and sizes. Like women in general. And I learned that there is comfort in shared experience. More than I expected. Happy to be proved wrong for once.
