15+ People Who Changed Their Gender and Finally Found Their True Selves

2 years ago

While some people only need a visit to a hairstylist or a nail artist to attain the necessary changes to their appearance and feel happy, others require a bit more than that. Gender transition is something we are going to talk about today. It is a life-long decision that requires not only a lot of forethought and weighing of all the pros and cons, but also immense courage and bravery.

We at Bright Side admire people who listen to their heart and do what it asks them to do. That’s why, today, we compiled a list 15+ people who were brave enough to start the long journey toward gender transition.

“Male-to-female. 25 months. Transition after 30”

“Transition is my favorite Christmas gift!”

“3 years, full-time today!”

“Never stop believing in yourself (28 months of transition)”

“How it started vs How it’s going. I never felt like I could comfortably navigate fashion before honestly, so it always came off as boring and generic.”

“I was worried about transitioning after 30, but it’s never too late to find happiness living your truth. Started my journey at 35.”

“Finally hit 4 years of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).”

“24, 26, 28, and 32. Started HRT just before the second picture at 26.”

“Now I have 2 things to look forward to about 2021. From 9- months HRT to 1 year and 3 months HRT.”

“February 2018 to January 2021. Am I pretty yet?”

What an amazing transition!

“2.5 years of HRT!”

“Not the most drastic timeline, but I’ll take it! (4 months HRT/closeted at work — 18 months HRT/completely out at work!)”

  • Pretty dramatic if you ask me. It shows exactly how dramatic tiny changes can be. You look SO feminine now. Amazing! © janinetrans / reddit

“He was 34. She will be 39 on Monday. It’s never too late to be happy.”

“Left: 5 months. Right: 4 months on antibiotics (estrogen).”

“2 years vs 2 years. Don’t give up!”

“Looking back...Wow, I’ve come a long way! (40 years old. Almost 3 years HRT)”

Which of these transformations amazed you the most?

They all look amazing! I hope the transitioning is going well, but I'm pretty sure it already is!
They all look amazing on their journey to transitioning, whatever point they are at. I hope they are all happy now, they certainly look it.
