Housing discrimination is one of my dreads in the 10 years since I transitioned. Thankfully, I have not had to rent on the open market since then.

I reject the label “transgender” but I am indeed “trans” (I’ll spare you the details of the 66 year medical history that goes with it). The label and the reasons don’t matter to people with an intense personal need to be better than somebody else. There are many of those, and we are a very easy target.
