I’m not “in the closet” at work, but I haven’t put in a lot of time coming out to people that I know there about being transgender. I just let them know that I go by a name other than my legal name and tell whoever I feel comfortable telling.
My supervisor does weekly reports on me, and he knows which name I go by. At our first meeting, without any prompting from me, he asked me if I wanted him to use male pronouns instead of female in his reports. I was happy to tell him yes and relieved that he understood my situation without my having to broach the subject and risk making things uncomfortable between us.
