TPT#219 - The Royal "We" (4-Year Transition Retrospective, Pt. 2)

Continuing our fourth manniversary trans-in-review, once George finally got HRT started, his body began changing. Once the changes became noticable, it was time to start coming out as male. Coming out to our kids and family was no problem. Working for the government, however, and especially in a small town, meant that nothing could be easy and especially not coming out. The following episodes were referenced, at the following times:
  • - 01:42 - Episode 25: early changes on testosterone
  • - 09:37 - Episode 20: coming out to the kids
  • - 17:54 - Episode 28: trying to prepare for coming out at work
  • - 28:55 - Episode 29: finally getting to come out at work
The letter we referenced in Ep29 is at transpantastic.net/2013/09/the-work-letter.html.

TPT#217 - Pee Into The Hat

Health care is a complicated subject, and getting health care as a transgender person can be even more so. Is the doctor choosing not to touch your body because she's bigoted, or just inept? Is a nurse being snotty because he's tired after a long shift, or because he took a look at your records? As George ages, health care interactions are going to become more frequent, and it's important that his providers are all capable and competent to work with populations of all genders. The good news is, his intestines tried to kill him just in time to have a day off for the mad rush on Gallifrey One hotel reservations!
