I am a trans male but live in a very traditional family and my dad and brother are not very pro lgbt+. My mom Is a lot more open minded but doesn’t know much about the community or anything and doesn’t acknowledge some of my try’s to bring up the subject/coming out attempts.

Hello Namos,

 

Welcome to our community - thank you for posting this to us.

 

Could you make a conscious effort to try and inform your Mom about the trans community a bit more? Like watching the film The Danish Girl together to open up some conversation. It may take your family a little while to come around to something they don't really have any understanding of what you are experiencing. Could you link your mom to a few articles too?

Don't feel rushed to share this part of yourself unless you feel ready to.

Here are some of our tips for coming out written by Lewis Hancox, I think you will relate to him. https://www.ditchthelabel.org/8-tips-for-coming-out-as-trans/

Sending lots of solidarity your way and keep us updated with how chatting to your Mum goes.
