Transortium Member from Marietta, Georgia
Anaissa has a secret profile on Facebook which is the only community she has in which she can be herself. She has started to tell her friends and family of her decision to transition and has been met with shock and disapproval. She would prefer to be accepted by her faith community but has become painfully aware that this is not going to work out. Rejection from her communities has caused her to consider suicide as she can no longer tolerate pretending to be a man. She’s not sure where to turn. Facebook makes her feel both less alone and lonelier than ever.
