HI all, I am so excited a place like this exist! I am wondering how everyone has been able to find support from their friends, family and community?

I have a friend who transitioned a few years ago, I am currently not looking to transition, but I am struggling to find the gender identity I feel most comfortable with, as well as my sexuality. I've mentioned this to my parents in passing, but they don't really pay attention to what I have to say. Many of my friends, have been supportive and understanding. It's so hard to find support and understanding, but we can't let that get in the way of trying to find out true selves.

@daenerys hugs and support to you! I am sorry you parents have not been as supportive as you need them to be, sometimes I think that people can be hurtful when they think something we are struggling with is “simply a phase”, which then minimizes the struggle and meaning of what we might be going through.
