Coming Out as Trans, Cold Draft

Dear World,

Coming clean may be the single most difficult thing I have ever done, but here it is:

I am a trans woman.

Almost always presenting as female the best I can, I do get out a bit. Seems to be, though, the last thing anyone ever expected was me.

This news may be difficult for some of you. Still I ask that you respect my decision to live openly, and if you are uncomfortable or consider our relationship damaged, I am truly sorry.

I ask that you call me Molly now, and please use the pronouns she/her/hers whenever referring to me.

I appreciate your kindness and understanding. Thank you so much,

Molly Bell
