This community is primarily for discussing issues related to FTMs of color and transitioning as a minority. Membership is open to all self-identified FTM individuals regarless of their transition status, as well as their friends, partners and supporters, although the conversations should mainly focus on issues relevant to FTMs of color. There will be no exclusion of individuals based on "authenticiy" so if you claim FTM, you're more than welcome here. Please remember that because everyone identifies a little differently and has a different reason for transitioning, that all comments should refrain from blatantly putting down, excluding or making assumptions about FTMs in general. With that being said though, you should feel free enough to honestly discuss topics without being flamed. I'd like for this community to be a little less formal than some of the other FTM groups on livejournal.
Please also keep in mind that if you are joining this community as a supporter, ally, or partner of an FTM that this space is meant to be primarily an FTM support and information space. Your support and input is welcome here, but please remember to speak from your own experience.
Please be open-minded and respectful even when you don't agree with people here.
Posts must be FTM related and use the LJ cut tag for long posts. Off-topic posts, quizes, duplicate posts, new posts started to continue arguments from previous posts, etc. will be deleted and a comment will be left for the original poster to let them know.
Members who cannot stick to the rules here will be warned and banned if neccesary.
