I joined this group primarily for the opportunity to socialize.
This about identity. This is not a life style -- as if it was a choice. Since 2004 I have been aware of my identity. I first presented my real self to the world in 2005 but did not regularly present myself in public until 2010. I transitioned in 2013 after various surgeries. I guess one could say I am "active" all the time.
My name is Michelle. I belong to a number of Meetup groups, e.g. MATC, to maintain my connections to my sisters in the community and our allies.
I am new to the group but know many ladies who are members. No doubt that that my experiences with this wonderful group will be as warm and exciting as the ladies I have met.
