Nothing dramatic. Just the facts and feelings presented gently, unlike many other transition stories that are all fluffed up and flaming.
Very poor writing style. The further it went along the worse it got. It was like listening to the person who loved to talk; the person that everyone regrets having asked a question. 2 stars for a trans person to speak their story.
