Default My partner is transgender

My partner started transitioning (ftm) a couple years ago. We were together for years before then in a lesbian relationship. When he first started transitioning I looked everywhere to find some kind support for myself only to find that it didn’t really exist. It wasn’t that I didn’t fully support my partner in his decision but that I thought it would be helpful to talk to someone who was going through the same thing. Has anyone else been with a partner through their transition? If so what has your experience been like?

Another possible resource for you would be Susan's Place. There is a forum on Susan's Place specifically for spouses & partners of people who are transitioning ("Significant Others Talk"). Here's a link:

Thanks for the info. I just realized it says this forum is only for transgender non-binary or questioning people, so I guess I need to get out of here. Once again I find myself where I dont belong.

If you're dealing with trans issues, even with a family member, then this seems like the right place for you.

Yes technically this is true. And there was a time when there were trans members who took issue with having cis-gendered members posting here. But the Transgender forum has been pretty quiet recently. And it's not been unusual to see cis-gendered members replying to posts here of late. So, while your concern is appreciated, I don't think it was wrong for you to post here. Besides... as has already been pointed out... since you're dealing with a trans concern, my thinking would be posting here was fine. Thanks for sharing your circumstances.
