Positive relationships within the Trans community

At Born is a story we hear only too often; that family, partners and friend’s relationships break down once a Trans person takes the brave step to come out to their loved ones. To promote acceptance and give hope to the Trans community we have produced a set of images to tell positive stories of relationships surviving the coming out process. These people chose to support their loved ones through a difficult time when they need support and love the most. Born Limited… Confidence consultancy for trans people | | 0161 825 0078

Being chosen for Born’s supportive family and friends campaign was just one of my 2016 highlights. My story starts back to my teens (in the 1970’s) when there weren’t many (if any) high profile transgender role models. I knew there was something different about me and it wasn’t till I was 12-13 years old that I realised I had been born in a body that didn’t match my mind. I liked to write, draw and wasn’t particularly interested in playing sports. Through the following years I tried to fit into society’s image of what boys/men should be. I suffered from depression a few times (and know think it may have been because I wasn’t my real self). I was married twice and had 4 children from them.

About Transliving Magazine

Hi and welcome to issue 55 of Transliving International. In this issue, we feature Amanda Richards from America on the front cover. Amanda shares with us her photos and tells us all about her journey as a t-girl and her makeover-service business. This issue also includes a report with photos from our Laguna Bournemouth Weekend from last December which again was another enjoyable and successful weekend. We also feature Defy Models, which is a new modelling agency catering for the transgender community only, and is the first of its kind in the UK. I have spoken with the founder, Mark, at great length on several occasions and he has lots planned for the future. Transliving are also planning to get involved with some of it, but for now, if you fancy yourself as a model but have always allowed your trans status to put you off, or indeed have been refused work because of it, then please do check the feature out on Defy Models in this issue and make contact with them. One feature included this time is Sexual Health, and it is something that we should all be geared up on and pay extra attention to, particularly if you are not in a monogamous long term relationship. I know that the discussion of sex is somewhat still a taboo subject within our community and many prefer not to discuss it, but my motto is; ‘if you're doing it then enjoy doing it but at least know the facts about Sexual Health and that you're safe!’ PLUS all our usual sections on where to go out in our Scene Guide, TV/TS Contacts, Events, readers' personal real-life stories & experiences, fabulous photo-spreads, advice on fashion, makeup & image styling, Information, Support and so much more!.... What more do you need? With so much going on it’s no surprise that Transliving is THE go to magazine for the Cross-Dressing and Transgender community and their friends and lovers all over the world!
