[or my letter to my res. hall coordinator]

(horribly informal and unfinished.)

Sub.: Heads up!

Hey, *RHC*...
I've come to realise that I am trans and identify as male, and I would appreciate it if you would treat me as a male from now on.
My preferred name is Callum or Cal-I'll answer to both, as well as *lastname*.
What this would also entail would be that, aside from the obvious name change, is that my preferred pronouns would be male.

I am worried about transphobia from the other residents though and would like to know I have your support and help should anything happen.

As for the rooming situation-although I've told both of my roommates about it and they have said they don't mind me being transgender-legally I am still female [at this stage in my transition I also wouldn't feel comfortable rooming with other guys].
I can't quite think of anything else but this should cover the basics.
But if you have any questions, feel free to ask me on Facebook or when I come back August 19th.

-Callum *lastname*
And that's about as far as I got.
[some notes: he's had Trans 101, so to speak, so no need to define that.]

[or hey disclosure schedule!]
Aug. 1: my residence hall coordinator Done! Just waiting for a response.

Aug. 6: the GBLT Pride group in my hometown [mmm, swimming. trunks+swim shirt=totally happening] Entry here

Aug. 19/20: rest of residence hall oh my gods they have been amazing at this considering they've only known for about a week. my name comes out effortlessly, like it had never been changed [and a lot of these people are people I've known my entire time here. Even my res. faculty leader -he's like the "dad" of all- has switched. and it's just wonderful. they haven't even slipped in their pronouns. *amazed*

Aug. 26: bigltm. [i do not suspect good things from this.] yeah we all knew this was going to happen but it would've been nicer if it didn't.

"I know this is very random, but I was wondering if you are any relation to S____ E. R_____. I was trying to find her on facebook because we will be rooming together this year at WVU, and you seem to have many things in common that points to you being her sibling. Hometown, college, last name."

[got a favorable, I assume, response back. maybe this is just where i live/who I hang out with, but how do you not know about transgender people? like this is the second time I've had a roommate who's responded like that-the first one changed rooms.]

how the little things can make one get all dysphoric and twitchy and unhappy.

[or arghflx i've had to wear her underwear these past couple days and i can't pack in them ('cause they're all silky smooth back when i overcompensated] and it's driving me fucking nuts and i hate it hate it hate hate it) though my mother did give me a bunch of her sports bras-which and they're a bit too small-makes them great for binding. but they're uneven 'cause of that frickin huge scar on my chest and i hate cause everytime i look down i can see that imperfect line and it's driving me fucking crazy and i cn't fucking stand it and

it's been about a month since i came out to them [as non-binary trans*, at the time i was] and my mom hasn't mentioned anything to me. i know these things take time but still...and i know she knows i changed my name on facebook but she hasn't mentioned that and damn it i want to come out to them but the denial they're going through is making me not want to -well not to them, to people they're friends with, yes-and i

think i may have officially come out on facebook. with a link. this should be fun.

[the link in question: ] (yeah, i'm the first letter. ^_^)
