You know, I was hesitant about joining a support group for transguys but I’m glad that I’m part of it. It helps to sort things out, figure out where life is going and get feedback and ideas from others. As much as we want to be individuals in our own right we also want to belong — and a group like the one I’m part of definitely makes me feel both individual and yet, part of something greater than I. There is always something new to learn and something that we can share to help others learn.
The HR person from work emailed me and said she wants to talk with me tomorrow to discuss my “needs”. I’m pretty hopeful that things will work out well. I’m not so idealistic to believe that everyone will be ok with this but I’m hoping the majority will be ok. At the least, I’m going to see what my options are moving forward. I’m pretty sure they can’t fire me for transitioning, especially with the rave reviews I get when I teach but I don’t want to create an environment that will give them an excuse to fire me or lay me off.
Anyways, expect more tomorrow after I talk with them.
