I just wanted to take a moment and thank Trans(forming) for helping me with changing my gender marker and name on my drivers license, passport, birth certificate and with Social Security. I have been living as myself for years but was terrified to change my documents because I thought that my state would block me some how or that someone would try to shame me. Much of the information that state level agencies have online is not followed when you are in front of a real person. Trans(forming) helped complete my paperwork, pay for my changes and supported me in follow up. I am so thankful that I did not have to do this alone. Going to court is nerve racking and having people who have been through it makes it so much easier. They even offered to go to court with me for moral support. Now, I do not have any fear of building my career. Now, I feel like have much more control over my life and my direction. Finally, I can take a woman out without worry of her seeing the name on my debit card. Now when I go to the grocery store I do not have to provide a second ID to us my debit card.
THANK YOU, Trans(forming). You all have lifted a rock off my back.
