Former Transgender: I Thought I Wouldn't Be Happy Until I Transitioned, but I Was Wrong

(Courtesy of Jeffrey McCall)

Jeffrey McCall identified as homosexual for 16 years. The last two years of this gay identity, he began to identify as transgender also. McCall recently wrote For Such A Time, a memoir that travels throughout his entire journey from homosexuality to being born again!

Read an excerpt of For Such A Time below:

The new school year began. I was now in my last and final year of graduate school. I was so close to completing my extended education and having a master's degree to go along with my bachelor's. I was so excited for the beginning of new life after the school year was over. I had big dreams and wanted to move to any big city. I thought my life was soon to begin, and I saw myself as Scarlet. I wanted to live as a woman and would do anything to do so. I told my psychologist, who was homosexual, that I wanted to live as a woman. I also told my new psychiatrist I wanted to live as a woman. Both of them thought I was transgendered, and the psychiatrist even diagnosed me as having gender dysphoria. It had been so easy—I told them I felt comfortable as a woman, and everyone I knew in the medical profession had said I was a woman. I had women's clothes now, along with wigs, jewelry, makeup and shoes. I did makeup almost every other day and started doing different hairstyles. It took time, but I got better at accentuating my chest and padding to have more of a curvy figure.

The promiscuous sex really started that semester. I could not be Scarlet or be with men without being drunk. I would drink while I got ready. Drinking was a huge part of life living as Scarlet. I would get on Craigslist and make ads and start pouring the drinks. I started having sex with a number of men. It was almost every other day I would have a drunken hookup. I would be so hung over the next day. I even started going as Scarlet to restaurants and "straight" bars. I started meeting men out. I was an easy sexual toy to these men. I was having sex with different men every week. Sometimes, when I was on drunk binges, I would have sexual encounters with three or four guys a day. My life seemed hopeless unless I had Scarlet and the men to make me feel something. I thought, Once I fully transition into Scarlet, then I will be happy. Then I met a guy.
