Gender Connection

We are Glad You are Here

This is a site created by Michele O'Mara, PhD in an effort to assist gender variant folks wishing to make friendly and safe connections with others with whom you can relate. This site is a simple, peer-run, space that invites you to share life experiences, resources and friendship. Though this site has been created by a therapist, this is NOT THERAPY or in anyway related to therapy.  This is a peer-based place to gather on the internet. Please respect yourself, each other, and the community you create here.

This peer-based community is free.  You must be sponsored by an existing member to join.  Once you register to join, the member who knows you must send an email to Michele O'Mara, serving as your sponsor and your personal GC buddy.

Slight problem here, and in this case it's understandable. My roommate signed up for this site a while ago. Unfortunately, she ignored my advice and did not choose something that even sounded like a real name. Instead, she chose to sign up under the name Profilgate Spendthrift. Now, I personally don't like using my real name online, but I figured the contracts I signed with Examiner and Suite 101 -- which forced me to use my real name -- have already done the damage. Is there anyway to get her approved?

Hello, I'm new here. I'm Chris, I am in a state of limbo. I've taken up residence here, for something like 15 years. It's not so bad here, in the intersection of the venn diagram between masculine and feminine. It's comfortable. If I venture outside the comfort zone, it's both scary and thrilling. In the past few months, I've toyed with that area outside the comfort zone. It took decades to find this nice cozy spot of equilibrium, but lately I've toyed with an idea that's been too far outside the comfort zone for my whole life: transition. I think I COULD go on and transition to living as the woman I am inside, but do I want to? I don't know that I want to LIVE outside the comfort zone.

So that's where I am, on the precipice, wondering what to do next. I hope to get to know other folks here and talk about the androgynous middle vs transition, and what remaining baby steps I have before I would have to take a leap of faith and not look back. Plus, you know, make friends. :)

Hi Belle
I am glad you are on the web site now you will be a great addition for information with a lot of issues our little band of girls need to know about. Dr Z is a great resource for them as well. I think the cost has to be clear as we spoke the other day. Michelle is always a great resource to pass along to others in the community as well. She is pretty cool. :)
