Transgender Help and Advice:

We’ve listed a handful of online help-sites for trans and gender-variant people as well as their families and friends. After hours of scouring the web, we realised The Guardian online had an extensive list of helpful websites suitable for both trans men and women and even a separate section for female – male transitions. They thought of everything!
