Hi! Thanks for coming and looking at my blog. My name is Kirsty and I’m a 46 year old trans woman from just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland. At the time of writing this (May 2017) I am around 6 weeks away from beginning to live permanently as a woman. The blog documents my journey over the last 3 years from accepting myself first as a cross-dresser and then my realisation that I am in fact transsexual. More recently it has dealt with coming out to family, friends and work colleagues, and planning for my transition in work. Unfortunately my transition is not just male to female, but married man to divorced woman, so I have all that to deal with too. Not to mention the two best daughters anyone could ever ask for. I plan to continue to record my transition here in the hope that it might be of hope to others who find themselves in similar positions to me, and also for purely personal reasons so I can have my online diary – I want to record all that I am going through, and if there was nobody there to read it I probably couldn’t be bothered to write it.
I hope you find my blog interesting / enlightening / entertaining / worth reading for whatever reason.
These are older introductions, preserved to illustrate how my own self-image has come on.
About Kirsty: July 2014
Hello! Thanks for stopping by and a big welcome to my blog. I’m Kirsty and I’m a transsexual woman from Northern Ireland, still forced by circumstances and a late realisation into a part-time female existence. Just how part-time, well read the blog to find out. I hope one day to be able to transition to a full and permanent female life, but until that day comes I make the most of every opportunity to be my true self. And I document all that on here, along with my struggles with the conflict between my new identification as TS and the reality of life as a husband and father.
About Kirsty: February 2014
Hi! Thanks for looking at my blog. I’m Kirsty and I’m a crossdresser / tgirl / trans* / m2f transgender / insert own politically correct term here from just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland. I have been closeted for a long time but finally came out properly to my wife in January 2014 to a very sympathetic reception. I always think that the best way to understand something is to try to explain it to somebody else, so this blog is my way to try and understand how I got the the point I am at now, and about where I go from here. It’s even partly about me trying to figure out just what label I should apply to myself, if such labels aren’t completely redundant.
