A Brief Reintroduction
It’s official. I am coming out as transgender.
Hi! I’m Erica Lois Mays. I openly came out to my friends and classmates in June of 2020, and have been living as a woman in my personal life more-or-less openly since then. I am now in the process of changing my professional name; if you have my old email address, please update it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I am intending to change my legal name and gender in the near future, although not for the next several months.
As far as other life updates go, I have accepted a position as a site reliability engineer at Hudson River Trading, and will be moving out to New York City in May (fingers crossed)!
I don’t intend to publicly go into detail about my transition; it’s a very personal matter, and many transgender people have talked about it before, so I don’t have much to contribute to discussion about it. But if anyone wants to talk about it in person, or just keep in touch, my inbox is open.
