Lgbt!!! Any Tips For Moving From One City To Another?

I had no idea really where to ask this, none of the categories I came across really fit so… But the reason I’m moving is largely due to my Gender Identity and my families lack of acceptance on my Mum’s side as I’m a male-to-female transsexual. Plus a lot of people know me up here and I kinda want a fresh start.
Anyway around July/August/September next year I am going to be moving from my home town of Sheffield, South Yorkshire to either Tunbridge Wells, Kent or Brighton, Sussex depending how things are looking at the time.
Anyway I’m 20 years old and I ran away from home at 17 and have been living on my own ever since so isn’t like I have no independent living skills or work experience. Since ran away I haven’t been on job seekers once, something I take pride in.
In terms of getting a job in down in Tunbridge Wells or Brighton, I presently work for G4S Events, Asda and Sheffield Wednesday Football Club; G4S Events doesn’t have an office in either town or anywhere nearby so that isn’t an option, SWFC obviously are only operating in Sheffield and well Asda I should be able to transfer to a job a role down there.
In September I start university at Sheffield Hallam and I’m gonna look at transferring to the University of Sussex so I can carry on my degree down there in September 2014.
I have an ex-boyfriend down in Tunbridge Wells who’s willing to help me out with accommodation while I get on my feet and also once he has his own place away from his parents we are hoping to be room mates (I know that sounds like a bad idea but me and my ex-boyfriend get on really well).
I mean I think I’ve got everything covered but I have never done such a big move before, the biggest move I did was running away from home, I mean that was hard but this time I am gonna be starting my life over in a new town like 300 miles away from everyone I know except my ex-boyfriend and his family.
Any tips for when I finally make the move next summer?

    If I were to run away from home at that age I would surely fall flat on my face. You were able to manage that pretty well. I think if you were able to live on your own for that long moving 300 miles away should be moderately easy for you. Yeah, you might get homesick at times, but I think if you truly feel that a fresh start is what you need right now to make you happy then go for it. Just try to save up as much money as you can just in case something comes up, and its nice to have a decent amount of money no matter where you go anyways. If you really do get along with your ex, then living with him shouldn’t be too bad. Having him there as support is great too so that you’re not living that far away by yourself. About your family on your mom’s side, I hope they understand and accept you one day. They just have to get past whatever and realize that they should love you no matter what. Sometimes distancing yourself should help them realize that, so that is also why I think the move is good for you. Try to phone them ever so often to try and I guess “rebuild” any relationships with them. If some of them still have a problem, then stop talking to them. You shouldn’t put up with people in your life that are only going to make life less enjoyable for you, even if they are relatives. It sucks when your family won’t support you in certain things, but just keep hoping that one day they’ll come around. Good luck on your move. I think you’ll be fine.
