Luckily, I discovered a better alternative: transgender-friendly magazines. These are publications centered around our LGBTQ+ community that feature stories affecting us. The good, the bad and the ugly.


Today, I’ll share with you my top 15 trans-friendly magazines that you can scroll through the next time you have some minutes to spare.



Why Read Transgender-Friendly Magazines


I remember when I was coming out as a transgender a few years ago, I felt so lost.


I didn’t know anyone else who was going through the transition, so I had no one to ask questions like,  How do I tuck? and ‘Is tucking dangerous? 


That’s when I stumbled upon a transgender-friendly magazine and I kid you not, my life changed.

I finally felt like I had found my online community and a place where I could get answers to the million and one questions that I had.


Transgender-friendly magazines are not just a good pass-time.


They are life-changers, especially if you want to determine if you’re a transgender and learn everything you can.


Through these magazines, you can learn about the challenges Transgender people like us go through so you can remain cautious and protect yourself.


You can also learn about the achievements of other trans people and know that we can be unstoppable if we choose to love and believe in ourselves.

Plus, you can pick and choose which one to read based on your mood.



For example, if you want great LGBTQ+ movie recommendations, you can read the Attitude.

As trans people, it’s important for us to see our stories written and to have people represent us.


It shows us that despite any challenge that we may come across, we can excel and do anything.


So I recommend that you read at least one of these transgender-friendly magazines once a week.


You’ll thank me later. All the best love.
