24:28 Question of the Week

"Hi Nancy. I heard your short rant about how out and visible trans people do the most work for the least acceptance in the community. That really hit home. When I first transitioned, I was completely passable, but I came out to everyone, even some people at bus stops at times. I would work it into conversations. I know I really opened some eyes and put a "face" on trans people. The strange thing is that once I had worked through all my issues and felt completely comfortable about being trans, I no longer felt a drive to come out to people. Now I find myself in an small-town all-female work place and somehow I've worked myself into a closet. Am I doing a disservice to myself or my community by not comming out to my co-workers?"
