I knew I was different when I was a child in the 1970s. I never told anyone because I instinctively knew to keep it to myself.
When I hit puberty, I grew breasts. Middle school was rough because I was self-conscious about them.
For many years, I just felt alone, like I was the only one in my area. It wasn’t until I went to college that I realized there were other people like me nearby.
Now I know there are trans people around everywhere, even if they fly under the radar.
