Messages to Sexual and Gender Minorities and their family - Partners


Being a partner of a transgender person, do you have the following doubts?

  • Why did he/she still fell in love with me even though knowing his/her transgender identity? Why did he/she cheat me?

    If you believe that people click and become partners because they love each other, one’s gender identity won’t determine whom he/she loves. Besides, he/she might not even have any idea about his/her own identity when you two started the relationship.

  • We already have a child. How can I explain it to my child?
  • What can I do with my relatives?
  • Can he/she remain unchanged for our child?
  • Should we separate?
