Mikki Tiamo – Web Site

All my life I have struggled both with my gender identity and my sexuality, and after over a year of psychotherapy, that I was diagnosed with gender dysphoria and body dysphoria and my journey to my true self began.

Since November of 2019, I have lived my life full time as a woman and have been undergoing gender reassignment treatment, so that my physical body can match my psyche.

Because on this journey, there is a lack of information available, fighting the medical profession and also legal processes involved,  I have become an advocate for transgender help and rights.

I publish articles on both on my own blog and other websites and publications.
