I have one person in my past that was transgendered. We were not close but I would say that we were more then acquaintances. Most of the transgendered people that I met though have been through my work as a therapist. I remember having "discussions" with my supervisor over the fact that I would use the gender pronouns of the gender that the person identified with, rather than what was entered into the computer at intake from their ID.

I had a transgender friend, but we weren't incredibly close. I also took many sociology, psychology and sexuality courses in college, and some of those would cover transgender, so while in theory I know about it, I don't know tons about it from talking to friends and not being transgender myself.

I have 3 good friends who are trans women. Plus my beautiful fiance is a transwoman. I would never find myself happier I have to say.

I've been abundantly aware of the transgendered community for a long time now. I don't, however, have any close friends who are transgendered. A few years ago, I knew a local musician who was transgendered, but she's gone on to become much more famous, and whenever she's in town I usually can't make it to her shows

Transgender is an umbrella term that encompasses ANYONE who doesn't identify as 100% cisgender, simple enough. Being transgendered doesn't mean you will present as another gender, get surgery, be gay/bi/whatever, it doesn't mean ANYTHING except that you, at least for a section of your life, did/do not identify 100% as the sex you were born as.

By that definition, at least 40% of the people I know are transgendered, at least the ones who've talked about it with me.

I am trans*, as is my partner, my best friends, and many of my other friends and associates. For living in a relatively isolated area, I've found a surprisingly vibrant trans* community.

I'm an FtM, and one of my best friends at college is also an FtM. He's graduating this year, though, which makes me quite sad.

I'm transgendered myself and have many friends that are as well. Some have actually had the courage to out themselves after seeing the reaction that I got from our circle of friends.

My best friend of 9 years recently 'came out' as a transguy. He was always super duper androgynous, so the only thing different about him now is the pronouns I refer to him with.

I'm genderqueer, one of my partners is bigender, and I am an active member of my college campus' club for trans*, genderqueer, and gender questioning students. I am happy with how much community support I have access to.

If I noticed when this was started, I wouldn't have bumped it. -blushes-

That's sweet. I know quite a few trans parents, and I know my biggest fear is losing loved ones when I come out.

i'm close enough to the community to know that "transgendered" is generally not the preferred terminology, erk.
trans/transgender person/man/woman is preferred? though i know a lot of people prefer to just be called simply men or women! since that's what they are!!

anyway, so far as i'm aware of, transgender simply implies that a person's personal gender identity does not match that assigned to them at birth, usually but not always along the binary. of course, neuter/genderqueer/gen derfluid etc. people can fit that description too? but it's under the same umbrella, i suppose.

and 'transitioning' is not a requirement to be trans*, someone is still what they say they are, whether or not they've had sex confirmation surgeries....

One of my best friends is MtF and I am genderqueer. I've helped her along the way with things like makeup, hair, clothes, etc. I'm a cosmetologist and it made me so happy to see her trying on my clothes and letting me do her makeup, wax body hair, then look in the mirror and smile because she saw her true self for the first time. I almost cried after we gave her a makeover seeing her so happy.
