Welp. Here goes.

Hi everyone. You may have known me as a boy named Tom for 18, nearly 19 years. Quite a few, thinking about it.

Well, turns out that was a lie.

I'm not a guy. I'm a girl. Tamara. (ta-MAH-ra)

From now on, I'd like you to use she/her pronouns when referring to me. That would make me much happier.

Obviously this will come as a shock to a lot of people, I can't say I blame you. However, I hope that you'll still accept me for who I am, despite this change.

Thanks everyone. <3

- Tamara

The fact that you're a woman doesn't bother me. I don't care about what label people used to describe you in the past, what matters is what you know about yourself.

I think it's awesome that you had the courage to come out publicly (I can definitely relate). I hope that some day coming out won't be a scary process.

Awesome! WCA gender change?
The regulations say nothing about this (or I missed it); it would be nice to add something similar to what we have for nationality changes, I think (2e2).
The Regulations don't mention this, but you can ask a Delegate to change the personal information on your WCA profile, including your name, birthdate, gender, and country.

Very cool. I've always thought Tamara is a nice name, good choice!

Birthdate? Does that mean I can change my date of birth to being in 1895, so I can be considered the official oldest cuber? Move over you lil' whippersnappers, One-hundered-and-twenty year man coming through!
