Support in your area

Genderfree Genderfree
Do you have a lot of support for your issues in your area where you live? If not, how do you cope with being trans* in the area you live?

Ciao. Ciao.
I like in a town of less than 10,000 people, so not really a ton of trans support in the area. That said, I'm not on the transition path so maybe I just don't have the same set of needs. I do get plenty of support from my partner, friends, and then via the web so I feel like I get what I need in that way.

Luckily, I go to (arguably) one of the most liberal public universities in the American south, so I'm very much surrounded by generally accepting people. I go to a trans group biweekly.

That's wonderful! The university I go to is also very accepting of trans individuals, and even has a statement signed by the faculty of their support. There are gender neutral bathrooms everywhere, but I tend to go to a more abandoned male restroom.

none, in terms of like, specific support for "trans issues". i have a good family, that's all i need. it'd be nice to have a doctor who had decent knowledge of trans stuff, but you can't have it all, eh?

Since support in our area is limited My husband used link for his therapy.
I'm not trying to support or advertise but more just to get the information out to those who may live in areas that are less supportive.

We've had a hard time finding and endo in central florida, since he recieved his letter for hormones. The main hospital actually told me that the doctor were not accepting trans patients "since they're are too many people with "health" issues that need to be seen." I believed him but later on when I talk with a social worker she got up in arms and gave us more information.

That's wonderful. I know how hard that can be, not having being trans regarded as a real "health" issue. Where I live there is an endo in my university who works with trans patients. I guess I'm lucky.

I live about a half hour from a relatively large city that offers and LGBT youth program. I go to both a young adult lgbt group (18-23) and a trans support group. The ages at the trans group range from 13-mid 20s, and the facilitators are adult trans folk themselves.
Where i live is rather rural and not super accepting. It doesn't affect me trans-wise because i am stealth, but i am a bit worried about how people will feel about my sexuality (bi).
