He said: ‘A lot of them feel more comfortable training with another trans man as their trainer.
‘I also have a few female clients who are also a part of the LGBTQ community.
‘I really enjoy working with them – they’re a great community of people – but I do train cis individuals too.’
In April 2019, Matt found love with partner Molly, 25.
He said: ‘She is the most supportive person I have ever met and is so patient with me when I’m not feeling good in my body or having body dysphoria.
‘She reminds me on a daily basis how valid, important and loved I am.’
Now, Matt will continue to take testosterone for life or until his doctor says he no longer can do so. He has not shared whether he has already undergone surgery, or whether he plans to do so in the future.
But while he has been through his fair share of struggles, Matt says it’s all worth it to finally feel comfortable in his body – and he says it may have even saved his life.
He added: ‘It’s been the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome and figure out. I’m not sure I would have made it to 25 if I never transitioned.’
Transitioning from female to male: What does it involve and how is it done?
The transition process is different for every person, with some transgender men choosing to undergo surgery in order to change their physical appearance, while others rely simply on hormone therapy – including testosterone – to create masculine characteristics.
According to Planned Parenthood, for many transgender people, the process often begins by taking several social steps, including coming out to friends and family, and asking people to refer to them by the pronouns that match their gender identity (him/he, her/she, they/them).
Going by a different name is also an important step for some, as is dressing in ways that better match your gender.
Medically, gender transitional typically begins with hormone therapy; in the case of transgender men, testosterone is used to create more masculine characteristics, such as a deeper voice, facial hair growth, muscle growth, and the redistribution of fat away from the hips and breasts.
Hormone therapy is also used to stop a transgender man from menstruating.
