How Did Your Friends Or Family Support You When You Came Out As Trans?

Coming out as trans or starting to transition can be a seriously stressful and often overwhelming time. Having friends and family to lean on for support can really make all the difference.

Maybe they asked a whole bunch of questions and (even if you didn't have all the answers) you appreciated them starting an honest conversation:

And maybe you had a friend who didn't do much talking, but was a fantastic listener.


What did parents, friends, or other important people in your life do or say that really helped you feel comfortable and confident in your identity? What do you wish they had done or said through your coming out or transition?
