A Different Take on Passing: Trans Feminine

How many of us, assigned male at birth, have felt robbed of the opportunity to bond with other women? Without this camaraderie of female friendships, we may feel that our social circles were, or are, incomplete. Some of us have been able to find the female friendships we longed for in our youth as transgender adults,. For trans women, moving from one world to another one— becoming “one of the gals”—can be a transition within a transition. Join us as we explore what it means to be a woman in relationship to other women, and to experience our femininity with other women whose background and socialization differ from our own.
