Vanguys: Vanguys is a local (British Columbia) list for anybody who self identifies as an FTM (Female to Male) or is seriously exploring whether this identity is right for them. The definition of an FTM is open-ended and can mean many things. There are some folks who wish to take hormones and have surgery. Others are perfectly fine in their bodies but prefer wearing male clothing. Others want hormones. Others prefer surgery without the hormones. It is what makes you comfortable. It is whatever you feel defines you as FTM. If any of this fits you, then welcome to the club!

Please note that this list is for FTMs and FTM-questioning, only. It is not for non-FTM partners, friends, care providers, researchers etc. There’re many lists out there for folks interested in learning more about us and who don’t identify as FTM or FTM-questioning, so we’ve chosen to keep this list just for us guys.

To subscribe, email vanguys-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
