I'm transgender, Australian, and living in the UK. I am 'new' here, (although been here before years ago, before the whole trans thing).
It is great to see this forum still going! I think it is a great resource, especially for those who want to hit the beach in a thong but aren't too confident / are massively shy and worried about the reception. Me personally I love the thong bikinis, both the comfort but also the look of them. I think if someone is proud of how they look, they should be able to show it off :)
I first started thonging when I was about 19 (16 yeas ago :O), sad to say I had a lot more guts back then, I still do it now but I am far more nervous! (On the beach that is... not nervous about the underwear, I exclusively wear thongs).
Anyway, glad to be back, hopefully I can provide yet another unique viewpoint on thonging as I think I have both perspectives!
