  1. Just wanna say its awesome that you do this! I love watching/reading the stories. I’m already out of closet but I wish I had something like this when I was struggling with my identity.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Hello, I am keen to take part in it although I am non-US citizen. I am FTM from Singapore.

  3. I wanted to let you know that I’m one of the people you have helped with these stories. A few years ago I was struggling with my identity. I saw a post about DQRC somewhere and found this web site. It as well as DQRC people, especially Drago, have been a tremendous help to me. I just wanted to say thank you. You all rock!
