When should a transgender person come out to a potential romantic partner?

………………………………………..

Kelli Ann Busey — “I must be upfront before the first kiss with who I am. Everyone’s situation varies. I am sometimes taken for a cisgender female and that misconception can lead to angst if I am not upfront early in a relationship. Many peeps strongly disagree.”

Hadley Corporon — “Immediately. It’s just not fair to the other person. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to do so, but I feel like it’s the right thing to do.”

Lisa Dub Windsor — “The moment you know it may be a romantic relationship, you MUST disclose. It’s better for everybody and it’s just the right thing to do.”

Molli Jones — “My tg came out on our first date. Smooth sailing since.”

Lisa Nanny Jumper — “Right away. Honesty is everything, and tg or not, if the person is into you, they’re into you, no matter what.”
