Hi, my name is Chris and I am a transgender ftm student. This is my first entry about my uni life so far. Thank you for reading I hope you enjoy.
I am about half way through my second term of uni. I have 4 essays and a test and then I’ll be done for summer, very excited. I got a 2:1 on my presentation and a 2:1 on my essay in my first term. It’s been really good fun so far, everything is quite chill, no one comes in for lectures though only about a fifth of us turn up. I have two close friends, don’t really talk to many other people. I am on the horse riding team and i get on with them quite well. I don’t live in halls but I get the impression that the people that do just party, party, party. But that isn’t really my scene.
So, about a week ago I came out as trans and everyone took it really well. I haven’t told any family members yet I haven’t got the courage to do so. If anyone reading this has any tips for telling your parents that you are trans leave a comment at the bottom. Thank you.
