Coming out as trans to anyone is not the easiest thing to do... knowing someone for 20 years as who they are and suddenly changing it all; the pronouns and name.
My family hasn't been terrible with the acceptance. Having any support system is always good. I'd have to say my father's reaction surprised me the most.
If there were anything I'd like for the general population to know, it's that it doesn't matter what's under my clothes. It's what I think, and how I feel. We're all human, and at the end of the day, happiness and love are all that should count.
