A Letter To My Sister.

“…As you know I have been going through a lot lately and I have loads of time on my hands to think. Which I never have at any point over the last five years. I have had to make a really tough decision to follow my own happiness and to be brave. Because I have “realised” or accepted rather; that I am transgender. I know this might come as a shock but as a child I was always different and had gender issues and to be honest I never grew out of it. I just tried for my acting career.  I wanted to tell the people who are most important to me first, then over the summer I begin to tell more people. Because I am starting University in September and I want things to be clear from the beginning. I have decided to transition and there are loads of steps and requirements, it’s a long process but its for the best and really important for my own happiness. I will essentially be the same person as I am now, just as if I were the male twin of my own self. Hormones won’t change my morals or beliefs etc.. I will change my name to Cairo. I don’t mind if you want to talk about this more, or ask questions for your own clarity or even if you just need some time to let it sink in. Anyways I hope you have a nice bank holiday." Xx
