Gender transition in a pandemic

I came out as trans 7 months ago. Before that big social reveal, I’d started lots of other kinds of gender transitions—physical, emotional, relational—but starting the social transition that came with telling the thousands of people in my life about my gender was probably the most acute and momentous of all of them. It has been extremely stressful, intellectually draining, and emotionally exhausting.
