The first moment I could see my future as a trans man or trans masculine person was...
I've always had a really low voice, baritone. Long before I did drag, I did community theater. One play, they needed another male part and chose me because they didn't have any available men to perform. I bound my chest, glued on a mustache along with my usual stage make up and left for the play. I had to stop at Walmart to pick something up and the lady at the cash register said, "Thank you sir." It felt so good to hear that word, "sir." I could actually see myself someday, making it there.
Resources that helped me...
I am a veteran. I had quite a rough go of transitioning until I moved temporarily to New England. The VA there was so supportive, that I was finally able to start feeling comfortable discussing issues and concerns and steps I could take to work with those issues. After finding out what really good healthcare was, I have continued to only use providers who affirm who I am. And there have been many doctors, nurses, pharmacists, etc. along the way, who have been very helpful.
