The first moment I could see my future as a trans man or trans masculine person was...
I hadn't even told anyone that I was starting to think that I was trans at 21 years old. I went to an American Eagle outlet store and dared to grab two t-shirts and two pairs of jeans from the guy's section--my first time ever being brave enough to shop on the other side of the store. When I tried them on in the dressing room and saw myself in the mirror dressed as a boy for the first time it was like years of crushing depression and angst just floated away--I didn't see a specific future for myself but I did finally see the potential to have a future.
Resources that helped me...
Planned Parenthood's informed consent HRT Stand With Trans' programs (and now having the opportunity to work with them) a support group at the Salus Center in Lansing MI and a gradual increase in visibility especially over the past 5 years since I came out.
