My husband is starting uni this year and hes unsure if he should be completely open and say hes trans or only say to uni staff?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Hes dyslexic so asked me to ask on his behalf lol

Why would you need to say it to anyone?

I wouldn't tell anyone...
you'll find people are more accepting at university of pretty much anything and there's not a lot of judgement but at the same time there's no reason to say it so while I wouldn't lie if it came up and he might tell someone if he knew them well I think it's a weird thing to tell people you don't know and people might be uncomfortable with that
the only thing he'd have to tell uni staff is if he had some sort of issue he needed academic support with (e.g. dyslexia) not something personal

I think to know if he should tell anyone the question is what does he want and need? If you give a bit more detail then we can advice on his specific situation- is his name legally what he wants it to be, is he read as the gender he wants to be, will he be medically transitioning whilst at uni, does he prefer to be out in social situations. There's so many variables that yes/no isn't the most meaningful answer
