About Me

As a Transwoman I am very non-conforming to what most people would think I should be like. I don’t sugar coat the reality of being Transgender. It is not all makeup, heels, and dresses. But I am smart enough to hold my own in a room of 40 doctors and lecture them on being Trans. I am also “Outspoken” but you will never find me carrying a sign. But I will go toe to toe with someone who refuses to trust the science of being Transgender. I talk softly but I carry a HUGE stick!

My Transition Timeline

I think it is best that I point out that I hate talking about myself. I even have a gut wrenching time writing about myself. But if you ever meet me in person I am not one who could be called short on words. So without trying to rewrite my journey of self-discovery (The Shadow of Ally). If you have not figured it out yet I am a Transwoman. Who in 2016 started on a mission to bring to light the human side of being Transgender. Through the media we have seen so many different approaches trying to explain what being transgender is with their own opinions and agendas.

Over the last few years with my various work with the Human Library Project, Public speaking, The University of Tasmania, Being-trans website, and Being Trans Podcast. I have worked to bring to light the truth behind the issues of being Transgender.

I am a survivor who suffers with PTSD. I strongly advocate for a change in the approach towards mental health and the way general practitioners approach this subject. In the Transgender and Cis-gender communities we need to improve in the way we communicate with patients.

In 2016 I reached a milestone as a Dyslexic as I published my first book called “The Shadow of Ally”. I am very proud of all the work that went into that book. Though looking back at it I have grown so much over the years since writing it. I became a better writer and person because of it. I was shocked at all the response I got from it. Even with all the huge errors in it.

I made the choice to do it again and in 2020 I released my second written work called “The Choice” it is not about being Transgender. My end all goal is for people to see that even someone like me with all my issues is valuable. I want others with Dyslexia to see that we can create something wonderful even with our challenges.

  3. TRANZGENDR is striving to document the true transgender experience, which means we need our readers and members of the transgender community to tell us their story. Many people believe that life is about the peaks and valleys, but we believe it’s about the moments and the people in between. We see the uncelebrated members of the community, as bring truth and defining what truly means to live a life in transition.
    TRANZGENDR would also like to know what you think about the world that feels entitled to attack our community. So please feel free to submit your thoughts on current events as well.

  6. Wow! I am so blessed to have found this site and be re-educated by your path and your thoughts. What an amazing journey you have had and are still in. Quite a ride. I always love the Nissan slogan “Life’s a journey: enjoy the ride.” And I think you are bravely taking it and making it and living it loud and clear. I’m also amazed that you say you are dyslectic because you write so very well too. You are one amazing person. Thank you for allowing me a peek into your amazing life.


  7. Hi Ally, Lovely to meet you this evening. Congratulations on an excellent site and blog. In order to be a writer, you need something to write about, and you certainly have that! Well done on writing and publishing your book; no small task! Best wishes for your future.


  8. Hi my name is Krissy and I am a transgender also I came out 5 years ago and my wife was very supportive i am now widowed ( October 2018) and with that I promised her that nothing would stand in my way of becoming a woman . As of November 2017 i was put on testosterone blocker spironolactone and found out that they were destroying my kidneys so as of February 2019 my dr. made a switch to ketoconazole which is better and I have noticed that my adams apple is going away and in March i am going to be on the female hormone patches but as I get closer to that my therrapist will be writing letters for my penile reverse surgery in September this year so in 2020 i will be a full female i am looking forward with my life . I live in a small town so I have run into very rude people and my thoughts for them is this ( I am not here for you to judge but you are jelous of me and I did not ask you to look ) each and every day someone has negative words and I don’t give a second thought This is me and I am going to be who i really am
    Thank you

        hugs Krissy
