It would seem I'm on the wrong side of people of this forum, but regardless, there are NZers who will stumble across the GayNZ forums in their beginning stages of coming out, and I thought posting some resources that might be of use was a nice idea.

These are directed more at FTMs, obviously.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nztransguys/
A large number of trans guys in NZ are members of this group, and can be extremely helpful with whatever questions you might have, plus they're friendly as heck  Smiley

http://www.agender.org.nz/
Good to check out.

http://www.genderbridge.org/
Also has a support line: 0800 TG HELP (0800 844 357)

http://www.susans.org/forums/index.php
A good place for general discussion and other resources.

It's been said that writing things down can help you figure things out, Livejournal is a blog site with members from all over the world, and once you have your own journal account, you can join communities and post to them.

Livejournal communities:

Youtube:

There are heaps of trans guys with videos on youtube that range from personal vlogs to how-to guides to experiences with surgery, etc.

Bebo/Facebook: there are groups around.

Real life: TRANZform is a group for trans/genderqueer/gender-variant youth that meets up once a month. You can find details on the Outthere! site

http://www.outthere.org.nz/resources.htm
Also has some great stuff.

And some more resources here:

Thanks JD for the links I have looked at some of them I must say some are way out of my scope of thinking but the link below from the F to M Australia group says what a lot of us tried to tell the Inquiry and seemingly failed.

Kestin's story: T is for Testosterone

22-year-old Kestin Stewart is a female-to-male transguy living in Auckland and currently looking for work in animation.

Coming up to his one-year anniversary taking the male hormone Testosterone, Kestin told GayNZ.com about his trans journey and new-found 'manly-hood'...

Hiya i see something missing on your listing a shame as it the number one top site in the world for Transexual for help an a very large chat site where i mostly spend time on ..Some time there is large amount of female to males on there as well allso odd Kiwi are now finding there way there allso..Do check it out ..No dating at all follow the rules as thay Ban very fast on there allso if you need help fast ask an thay will chat in rooms for it ...

http://www.lauras-playground.com/mtf.htm

I trying to chat up a female to male on there but he in Ozzie  heheheheh Just had the surgery in Norway At 43 years old ..

As trying to find one here is a needle in a hay stack so a waste of time .

An i allso seeing a Psychiatrist but a stuff up happen ..But a costly cup f coffee at NZ$300   so need to go back again two see him ..

I don't class myself as Transexual nor transgender i use it sometimes ..

I surport Gayline only as i see myself Lesbian female ..I find a much better female doctor now so no longer need sexual health help any more as thay stuff me around for allmost a year now not much help at all  .I feel deeply hurt bye them as well sometimes allmost die one time as i ask for help from them an was turn down ...

wtf?

This thread is about resources for female to male trans people, not trans dating sites, not you trying to pull trans men on said dating sites, and not your forays into councelling and medical treatment. (If you wish to discuss those things, start a different thread in an appropriate area of the forum)

*******

Also, go Kestin! You are awesome.
