Hi! Thanks for coming and looking at my blog. My name is Kirsty and I’m a 47 year old transgender woman from just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland. This blog is a place for me to jot down my thoughts about my transition, which has been in progress since July 2016, and just somewhere for me to write a few things that interest me. I don’t want to be defined by being transgender, so I’ll add that I’m a music fan, occasional music creator, pro cycling obsessive and I enjoy reading (member of two book groups), film and video games. In fact, I’m a bit of an all-round geek really – I love Tolkien, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and lots of other sci-fi and fantasy things. But not superheroes. They’re just silly!
I had another blog at this address (now deleted) which chronicled almost exclusively the journey that I took from finally accepting who I was in early 2014 up until the point at which I was out to everyone and living fully and permanently as a woman at the end of 2017. From here on in I will still write about significant milestones in my trans journey, but that is no longer going to be the be all and end all of this blog. This blog is a much more rounded view of me and my life. Why anyone would want to read that, who knows? But I like writing, and that’s what I’m going to continue to do.
Thanks for reading.
