I always do it really casually. Just, I’m a guy. But, of course, it’s a little different with people who we are intimate with.
The way I told my family was something along the lines of: Hey I need to tell you something important. So, I’m transgender. Transgender means that I don’t identify with my body or with how I was previously perceived socially. Although everyone knows me as x gender, I actually identify as a man. I’ve thought about this for a long time and it really makes sense to me. I feel more comfortable with male pronouns and, eventually, I want to change my legal name. I really care about you and that’s why I’m telling you all of this. I was hoping, because I’m taking a risk at being so honest with you, you would work on using different pronouns for me and respect what I’ve told you. I know this changes a lot of things and I know that it will take a while to get used to, but this is what I need to do to be happy with my life and comfortable in my body.
Starting hormones while underage depends on your parents consenting and on whatever gender therapist/endo you go through. I couldn’t tell you because it’s done differently all over the country. Some people need a certain number of therapist visits and some people have access to informed consent clinics.
It’s probably entirely possible that you will grow a little more with hormones than without but you’ll need to go through your doctor to get an actual answer. I’m not a medical professional and I don’t want to say the wrong thing.
