June 2014: our gender identity

22 Jun

The topic for tonight’s meeting was around how we come to know our gender identity and how we express it. Oddly, for a group of trans people, this doesn’t get talked about as much as you might expect. We are at the moment a pretty happily diverse bunch in FTMB, and consequently have different stories about how we came to recognise our identity and how it fits in with our lives.

As usual, there was much talk on a range of subjects tonight – always a good thing. But the subject of who we are and how we come to know that is one I think we will return to. It is not something we get to talk about much, it seems, anywhere else. And it is often through groups of trans people where you meet and chat and talk about who you are, where you meet people who think about things very differently to you and people who are just like you, that you come to figure out what’s right for you.

Tonight was also the FTMB AGM! We did a quick round up of this year’s survey data and then were very pleased to welcome a new member to our committee.
