“Any time I face rejection from someone, I constantly worry whether the person genuinely wasn’t interested because we weren't meshing well, or if it's because I'm trans.” Luckily for K, he found a partner who helped him through the early stages of his transition.
“She bought me my first pair of boxer briefs, and encouraged me to get a binder and stop shaving my legs and armpits.
Thanks to the support of her and my friends, I began to become more confident with my body, and felt like I was able to be sexual without nearly as much insecurity.” For some trans men, especially those who haven’t yet began their physical transition, sex can be a difficult subject.
As Cas explains, their biological body affected their sexuality, “I actually identified as asexual for many years.
In the UK, gender confirmation surgery is covered by the NHS.
As well as physical changes like increased hair growth, periods stopping and even changes to muscle formation, there can also be some emotional changes too - just like being a teenager. Jad says, “It’s helpful to understand that when we begin hormone treatment, it is basically second puberty, so forgive us for acting like moody teenagers at times.” Just like a relationship between cis-gendered people, if you’re dating a trans man, it’s important to check in with each other about how you’re feeling.
Thanks to incredible trans women like Munroe Bergdorf and Laverne Cox, more and more people are feeling empowered to change their biological form to match their gender identity.
But what is it like being (and dating as) a trans man?
“Trying to find someone ‘willing’ to date a trans man is challenging, especially if you're pre-T (testosterone, a male hormone taken by trans men during physical transition) pre-op, etc.
A lot of times I get, ‘Oh, sorry I'm not into girls’, which is incredibly frustrating,” K continues.
