"transquotes" is dedicated to discovering and sharing quotes relating to transgenderism, as well as gender and gender identity in all it's varieties. .

The views expressed in these quotes are not the views of the blog owner.

We try to keep quotes on the positive side, but we understand how confusing and painful gender can be. This is why we allow confession-like quotes.

I love him so much. I do not know how I could go through all that without him. He gives me so much power for me to go through this. Submitted by Anon

Hello all!
Just to let you know I have received messages you’ve been sending, and I’m always on the search for new quotes.
However, I recently got a job in theatre and I’m working 6 days a week.
Transquotes is obviously still up and running, but the running may be slower for a while. Please bare with me :)

Text Reads:It is my dream that by highlighting the deep humanity of trans people’s lives in the media, elevating actual trans voices to speak the truth of our lived experiences in ways that don’t sensationalize and objectify us, those human voices and stories can be a part of the disruption needed to end the disproportionate injustices that threaten so many trans people’s lives, particularly the lives of trans women of color. ~ Laverne Cox

Text Reads:Don’t worry about fulfilling all of those stereotypes of “being a man”. Just be yourself no matter how much fear is inside of you. Cause let me tell you… Being out here, there is still fear faced every single day but strength within yourself is there even when you don’t think it is. Be strong. No Fear. Be yourself.

Text Reads:I am afraid of what they might do when I tell them that the person that they have known for twenty years has been nothing but an illusion. A false me that I created to make them happy, to make them proud. Will they except that this is the real me? Will they claim me as their own? Will I ever be their son, their brother? Or will I just be dead to them.Submitted by Gregory Myles

Text Reads:…I do fear for my brother’s future; as a homosexual it’s hard, I wouldn’t be able to understand how hard it could be just trying to be the person you really are. I’m scared he will become the true person he wants to be but regret it later on. We both rely on each other, especially through hard times. I hope he does become the person he really is because no one will ever tear our bond apart. He will always be my family no matter what and I’ll be right by his side all the way. Submitted by mrkillercane

Text Reads:I’m not transgender myself, I’m homosexual, but my brother is transgender. I have supported him always, even when he came out. At first i came out [as] bisexual to break the ice assuming that it was more acceptable until i came out fully. My brother did the same; he thought coming out [as] gay was the best way and more accepted, especially to our family. Thankfully our family is understanding… Submitted by mrkillercane

Text Reads:I’ve just recently started my transition to male, and some days I feel more confident than others. But going somewhere and getting called “buddy” really sucks because that’s something I call my 14 year old brother. I’m 21. Submitted by Alex

Text Reads:Sometimes I doubt myself and try to enumerate all the ways I can’t possibly be trans. I actually shoved down all the feelings for a couple of years and went hypertraditional feminine, but it didn’t work and when I imagined careers that I was actually interested in, I usually saw myself as male.

Text Reads:I’m scared I won’t be able to gain employment. After all, what investment firm is going to want to hire a transgender banker? I want to go stealth, but my state makes it hard to change records. I just want to be a professional man.
