Welcome to the NuttycaTS Support Group for Transsexual people


Secure and confidential online help and support for adults at all stages of treatment from questioning of gender through to post-operative care. Our warm invitation is also extended to partners and families. We are based in the UK, but our membership extends across the globe. All are equally welcome.


NuttycaTS is one of the worlds oldest Trans support forums. Since 2002 we have offered a small friendly community atmosphere within which our members can share questions, experiences and knowledge, and in doing so seek and provide mutual support. With over 420,000 posts, our Forum categories range from specific medical aspects of Transition to the more general aspects of life. Diary threads are a feature of the NuttycaTS forums, and provide a safe space for members to blog about their lives.



NuttycaTS supports equal and fair rights for all people (and cats), regardless of gender identity or sexual preference, religious or cultural differences, mental or physical health issues.


The Privacy and confidentiality of our members is a cornerstone of our ethos. We have various security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control. All information transmitted between our forums and our users Internet browsers are encrypted with a 2048-bit security certificate CSR encryption technology to enable secure internet communications to take place to prevent unauthorised access, hacking and snooping.

We have additional security procedures and firewalls in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our users Information. Also, Search Engines, Trackers, advertising company software and other internet technology used to profile users browsing the web are actively blocked from accessing the NuttycaTS Forums. We also use IP blocklists to actively block access from dubious and blacklisted servers and known spammers and hackers.


Furthermore, all prospective members are carefully vetted and/or vouched for prior to being allowed to join the forums. We also actively monitor our forums and any member who is found to be complicit in breaking confidentiality is immediately banned. We also reserve the right to report any breach of confidentiality to the Police or other relevant authority.


We believe we are the only Trans Support Forum on the Internet offering these security procedures, and you can rest assured that your personal information will be safer with us than with any other online forum or social network.


We are committed to making our Support Forum as accessible as possible. By this we mean making sure that our content is available to users with physical or sensory impairments and who use assistive technology like screen readers and to those users with slower internet connections or older computers. For this reason, our forums offer two different user interfaces, a standard default one for use with modern computers and large touch screen devices, and a second user interface aimed at those using small touch screen devices, slow internet speeds or accessibility issues. Users can easily select and change interfaces manually, depending on their preference and/or type of device they are using at the time. However, both of our user interfaces achieve a minimum of the AA accessibility rating, as defined by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), the body responsible for setting global website accessibility standards.


Although every effort is made to ensure that our Support Forum is accessible to all users, some users may have specific accessibility requirements that we have not accounted for. In such cases, just contact us and we'll do all we can to customise NuttycaTS to meet your needs.

Andrea:

I just wanted to say a huge great big thank you to all at Nuttycats. I've been reading back through my diary and realised just how far I've come in the short time I've been here. I arrived here totally confused about everything with no idea of where I was going. Just three months later I know exactly where I want to be and although I'm not a hundred percent sure how I'll get there I do at least know that I will get there in the end.


Chani:

When I stumbled accross NuttycaTS I had just begun my journey. Only a couple of people very close to me knew anything about me being Transsexual. After fumbling with the registration, Nuttycat herself replied to my request for assistance and was very helpful. Initially I joined simply to read what others had to say. I had never posted anywhere on the net about Transsexualism. God! how could I? Once I was able to read the other members' posts, I knew that I had found the most friendly, most helpful site on the internet for TS's like me. Just starting, terrified, and lonely. Soon I was posting without fear knowing most of the members had either "been there, done that," or had at least thought about the same issues I was going through, so great advice is in abundance here. I feel that without the wonderful discussions and growing friendships I've developed here on NuttycaTS I would not be as far as I am now in my transition. I've got to say that there isn't a single more friendly place on the net as far as I can say!


Amber:

I just wanted to say that NuttycaTS has been more warm and welcoming than I could have ever dared hope. As someone who has just started out on my journey I couldn't wish for nicer travelling companions.


Eve:

Members of NuttycaTS should have nothing but pride for the evolution of this support forum.


Grahame:

As many of you know I am not T/S,but this site has enabled me to better understand and appreciate your desires and what you will do to achieve your goals.Before I found this site I knew a little about the clinical side,but nothing about your personal problems,fears and ambitions,and I believe that it is through this forum that I have grown closer to my new dearest daughter.


(Name witheld):

I did join a site which purported to support 'Significant Others' but found it very closeted and rather intolerant of GG married to TG people who were less than enamoured with their situation. I would like to join Nuttycats as I hear that it is a well managed site that supports and discusses all aspects of these situations and at the same time protects the individual rights and dignities of its members.


Anne:

I find NuttycaTS to be a wonderful site filled with compassionate advice given by a marvelous bunch of women, each sharing their experiences and council freely and without reserve. I believe that I have already gained some valuable insight which will help me as I advance towards the ultimate resolution of my own lifelong gender struggle.
