The Self Made Men on Tumblr

Please visit our website for more information: TheSelfMadeMen.com

The Self Made Men is a tool used to serve the transgender male community. On one end, we educate and promote awareness of our existence, needs and normalcy to individuals and groups in both the GLBT and Allied communities. Mirrored to this cause, our biggest concerns lie with the support and mentoring of other transgender people as a resource to transitioning and dealing with everyday life.

The website is open? Yes it is! The Self Made Men website is back up along with the store! Thank you all for being patient with us, and we look forward to another great year of doing business with everyone!

Our website is still www.theselfmademen.com but our email has changed to info@theselfmademen.com so please make note of that.

Hey everyone! We are excited to announce that www.theselfmademen.com will be open tomorrow (Jan. 10 2014)! We apologize for the wait being longer than anticipated, but we ran into a few hitches along the way with funds transferring and other little problems. The store will be back up, and all will be well!

The site is still down! Why? Because we’ve had a couple of set backs, money took longer to transfer in from companies and software took time to get codes for and shipments are coming in and going back out and we’re getting settled in and reorganized. We appreciate your patience!

We are about to start interviewing for monitors for our tinychat, come join us at tinychat.com/theselfmademen

Over the passed month, we were fortunate enough to have the encouragement and support from hundreds in our community to fund the production of FTM Magazine. We launched a kickstarter campaign the beginning of November and came to a close on December 7th.  Along the way, there was an amazing amount of people from all over the world donating to it, talking about it and expressing their excitement in it’s eventual reality.  So now that we’re funded, what now?

The timeline for the next couple of weeks is as follows!

December 7th - The fundraising officially closed and we became funded.

December 12th - The Self Made Men site will be closing, along with the store.

December 15th - Our office will be moving locations.

January 1st - The Self Made Men site will be redesigned and relaunched.

January 1st - FTMMagazine.com will officially be launched.

April - First issue of FTM Magazine released.

As of January 1st we will be taking submissions, requests and ads for the first issue, titled The Founding Issue. April’s magazine, being the first to release, will be a general themed magazine about all of the people behind many of the FTM sites and groups that we know and love. Giving their founders a chance to tell their stories.
