      I have been fully accepted by my religious denomination, and have even had my "True Name" recognized by my church in an open service.  I attended a Shabbat service where a Jewish Trans-woman was re-named in her congregation in a ceremony very like a Bat Mitzvah.  The woman is a very wonderful leader in the Trans* community who has helped to employ other Trans* women and men at businesses she owns here in Southern California.

      I had to move to get out of Dallas, TX, but being trans was not the only reason I moved. I wanted more for my life than just surgery. I wanted acceptance. I have schizophrenia in addition to being trans, and as a result I liver on a limited income and none of my dreams were coming true. It was becoming clear that it would be highly unlikely that I would finds a job earning enough money to make any real changes, and I was sound by the Jewish community. To make  long story short, I moved, and things are looking up for me. I finally found a temple that I can go too where I can be happy. Like I said. I had to make a long story short. Just want you all to know I feel happier now than ever.

      Thanks! Great story. Makes you think twice about judging others. I need to take note of it.

      http://www.reuters.com/article/us-ecuador-election-transgender-idUSKBN15Y0SN Ecuadorean transgender people on Sunday voted for the first time according to their chosen gender, in what activists say are signs of progress in the socially conservative and Catholic Andean nation. In Ecuador, men and women wait in separate lines to cast their ballots, which for years created uncomfortable moments for transgender voters who had to queue up according to their biological sex.
