Hi friends, my name is Leslie McMurray. I am a transgender woman (declared male at birth). Although I have known that I was female from a very young age, I had not done much about it until July of 2012. From then until now, it has been a period of near constant change. There have been things I expected and there have been things I never saw coming.
I am introspective by nature and have been keeping a daily journal of my transition. I also ponder bigger ideas and have just been storing them on my computer until friends urged me to share them in a blog. This is that blog.
These are my thoughts, my experiences and any errors I make with statistics or dates are mine alone. This isn’t meant to be a scholarly account. It’s a peek inside my heart. I share my vulnerablities and in many cases raw emotion. In several cases, as I finished writing them, I was in tears. Not from depression or sadness but accessing these feelings releases many more.
I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy writing them. Thanks for joining me on my journey, it’s nice to have company.
