Congratulations! If you're asking yourself if you're Trans, you've started the scary and exciting process of learning more about your gender. No matter what you learn about yourself, the Pride Alliance is here to support you. Only you can know if you're Trans. We've posted some helpful videos and articles here so you can explore and learn more about yourself. None of these resources are perfect, but they might help you learn more about yourself. Learning about Trans identies and ourselves is a process. We would love to support you! To make an appointment email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Choosing a Term
You don't need to choose any term to describe yourself. Sometimes, for some people, choosing a name for their experience such as Trans, Transgender, Genderqueer, Nonbinary, or Agender is helpful in their discovery process. For a good list of terms you might choose, check out Trans Student Educational Resources' definitions here. The most important thing to know is that you can make as many decisions about your identity as you want. You're never locked in, and you can always learn more.
Stories From Trans People
Hearing Trans stories can be a great way to learn more about your identity. Here are some experiences of Trans people and how they think about their experiences.
