Transition by thielenej

Suppose you were born in a body that did not match who you were. Suppose you were transgender. Your whole life you have been told you are something you are not. What do you do?

The point of this game is twofold. It is for cisgender people to understand the similarities and differences that being trans brings, but can also be used to help trans people understand the experiences of other trans people.
