How To Be A Trans Ally


Merry Meet

Our names our Peggy-Sue and Chloe Dee Ford
Peggy is 33 and Chloe is 34.
We have been together since May 1996. Have a son who was born in April 1998. And got married in August 1999.
"Married? Have a son?" I hear you ask. Well you see, Chloe hasn't always been Chloe.
Chloe was originally Duane, with Chloe making an appearance in 2006.
You see, Chloe is a MtF Transgender, and is currently transitioning.
We started telling our family and friends about Chloe on New Years Eve 2013.
Our friends have been magnificent, they see Chloe the same way I do! 
She is the same person inside, the same personality, it's only the cover that is changing.
My family have been brilliant too, they said as long as we are happy and our son is ok, then they will support us 100%. 
Chloe's family are still trying to get their heads around it though. You see, even they knew something was different, they never guessed that their son, brother, nephew, grandson, had an internal turmoil. That he was actually a she.
This blog will document our journey together, the preparations we did before telling our family and friends, and how our journey is going.
It will also show our thoughts and feelings, and the challenges we face.
We are doing this in the hope that it will help others to understand Transgenders, as well as others who are embarking on their own journeys.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Love and Light
Peggy and Chloe
