I don’t know why (looking for answers), but I’m fascinated with the trans world and I have to say…

We’re pretty fascinating, I imagine… :-)

I wouldn’t say ‘trans world’ — we are not separate, we are just one aspect of normal human variation in this world; we are with you and we are all around. Roughly one in every hundred people is transgender. If you’re in a crowded bus or restaurant there is probably a trans person there with you. We are mostly invisible, but always present.

So I am glad you’re looking for answers. You may or may not find them here, but it is my hope that you’ll perhaps get to know us a little, appreciate us and our experience, welcome what we have to say.

Thank you for reading, Omar. I appreciate you writing to me.
