The first moment I could see my future as a trans man or trans masculine person was...
I first realized I could have a future as myself a transmasculine person when I made a short film called DISFORIA and saw the film onscreen for the first time. The short is a psychological thriller about a young transmasc guy who returns home for Christmas to find that his family has left and sold the house without telling him and realizes... perhaps they would still be there if he had returned as the Jane they all know. I played both "Jane" and "Jack" in the film and seeing myself onscreen in a suit as Jack was one of the most affirming moments of my life up until that point -- I loved the way I looked and it felt right.
Resources that helped me...
I have gotten top surgery and getting that gender affirming care has been amazing. I also use Instagram to connect with other transmasculine folks. I also am deeply grateful to my family and my therapist who have supported me through this journey - even though they haven't always said the right thing to feel their love during these times of uncertainty has been really helpful.
