Just One of the Guys, Pt. 2

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

Note: This conversation will be centered on the experiences of trans men but is open to all who wish to listen, learn, and grow.
