Some news from Christin Löhner, the founder and maintainer of the Linuxcounter Project

Many, many months, at least two years have passed since I wrote my last article here. My last article was about the start of my transition. As most of you may know, my name before the transiton was “Alexander Löhner” (and before my last wedding it was “Alexander Mieland”).

Alexander Mieland has overtaken the Linuxcounter project from Harald Tweit Alvestrand in 2011, which was running until then on http://counter.li.org. He has created a completely new project from it on a new domain and with a completely new website and statistics. In September 2012 he married and changed his name to “Alexander Löhner”.

In October 2015, I started my transition and I wrote an article in one of the last newsletters, which explained what happens with me. For those, who has not read that article two years ago, here’s what I am:

I am a transwoman, a transsexual woman, who is on her way to become a real woman. I never was a man. Since my earliest childhood I always knew, that I am a girl. It took me about 43 years to find the heart and the courage to start my transition.

Now I write this new article to tell you, my very supportive and great users, what has happened in the past two years and where I stand now.

In January 2016 I started my psychological therapie, which is needed in germany to go the whole path until the final surgery. Since June 2016 I am doing my hormons-replacement-therapie and since november 2016 I am officially and in front of the law Mrs. Christin Löhner.

Since last friday, the 17th of november 2017, I also have the final appointment for my big surgery, which will happen in Munich in the end of january 2018.

If any of your want to know more about me and this path I am going, you may be interested in my blog, which unfortunatly is in german only: http://tgirl.r3y.de

I really apprciate your support and want to thank you all for your tolerance to stay with me and this cool project! Thank you all!


Best regards and kisses to you all!
Christin Löhner
