    • Hi girls! I'm Keira and I'm just starting my trans journey, I'm currently seeing a gender therapist and have started electrolosis on my face, Unfortunatly I can't begin HRT for a while yet because I happen to be in the military... One that only recently allowed gay members and is quite far away from excepting TG's :-/. But I do my best to stay in shape and eat right along with all the other things I do to look Girly. Worst case, I'll be 29 when I can finally start HRT so Im being patient. I have an incredablly supportive wife who is all about my transision (I knew she was at least a little gay ;-p) and several friends that are really supportive too. All this being said, I feel really blessed to be in this situation that is so difficult for so many and have the support structure that I have. But anywho that's keira right now in a nut shell :-) hope to talk to you girls soon!!

      Rosie gets out of the closet

      Posted by rosie Bush (new members forum mod) 26 November - Filed in Society Girl's Personal Blogs - #Bodidris  #Wales  - 13 views

      I spent months looking and planning  for a place to come out, it had to be far enough away from home, and not too crowded, there were quite a few to choose from , but the one i chose was Bodidris Hall in NorthWales, not cheap but very nice, owned and run by transformation, .They had 2 special offers available 23 - 26 October or 20 - 23 November so I booked for the October break, however about 2 weeks before I got a phnoe call to say October had been cancelled due to lack of bookings and that my reservation had been moved to November. It turned out that the hotel was in the prosess of being sold, but they had 5 bookings for November so this was to go ahead.

               Another few weeks to wait! never mind I drove to Wales on Sunday arriving at about 2.30pm - the first to arrive, but there were still 2 lunch guests in the lounge so I was advised to change and wait untill they had gone, I dressed in skirt and top and in due course they left and I went down to be greeted by  one of the hotel staff, this was the moment! as she was the first person ever to see me dressed, but all was well and the nerves settled down, she also told me that 2 " girls" had cancelled which just left 3 of us plus the real girl partner of one of the others, after about 10 mins "Alison" came down , this was her third viset so she was a great help to me, we chatted for a few mins until "Divinia" and her partner Diane came down. Thankfully we all got on very well and chatted over drinks.

         Alison and Dee had already dressed for dinner so I went and changed into evening dress, Dinner was lovely and in the course of conversation i admitted that I had made a mess of my nail polish and had to wipe it off, Diane who is a fab girl and very supportive of Dee,  offered to do it for me, and true to her word did so after dinner, she did my nails then carried on to pluck my eyebrows and touch up my makeup - which i had been worried about as I had always struggled with it, however she told me that it was not bad which pleased me no end!

          On monday morning Dee and Diane decided to go for a long walk, So Alison and I took up the offer fromTracy one of the hotel staff to take us out to lunch in another hotel about 15 miles away. This was another first for me walking into a hotel wearing a gray dress full makeup etc however it was quiet with ony 1 elderly couple in the lounge bar so we had a leisurely lunch with no problems, in a strange way i was wishing there had been just a few more people there !!! By the time we returned to Bodidris Dee and Diane were back and we chatted until it was time to change for dinner. After dinner we were joined by Sarah and her husband Brian who is the head chef and as he brought some home made wine and stout we had a wonderfull evening(even though I dont drink I was persuaded to try the stout - which was very good)

            On tuesday Dee and Diane had to leave as they were only there for 2 nights, but another gil was expected for the last night.

            As Alison wanted to go to Llangellen and walk down the high street ( a bridge too far for me) but was a bit nervious about it we decided to go in my car, do some sightseeing and I could drop her off and collect her further on, so we stopped at the top of the Horseshoe pass had a short walk and took photos, then called at an old abbey (more photos) then onto Trevor to see the aquaduct, when we arrived there it was quiet so we walked along the tow path for a while but on turning back saw that quite a few other visitors had arrived, oops - they were between us and the car! Only one thing for it we put on brave faces and strolled back past guys walking the dog and others in the car park, but all was well and i detected no reaction from any of them. we then returned to Llangollen and I stopped at the top of the high street  to let Alison off for her walk, arranging to wait for her in a car park about 1/4 mile away. I went on to the car park to find that it was pay and display so very bravely!!! ha ha parked as close to the machine as possible and went and bought a ticket - fortunatly it was very quiet. so no problem. Alison arrived at the car after about 15 mins very pleased with herself alough i think the heels were causeing problems for the last 100 yards or so.

             By this time we were both in need of the loo so discretion being the better part of valour we headed back "home" By the time we got back the new girl "Gina" had arrived, It turned out that she could only get away for one night as she has "domestic issues" at home ! however we had another enjoyable evening. All too soon it was Wedensday morning and time to pack up for home. As it turned out the new owner of the hotel took over that day so we dont know if these breaks will continue in the future or it could be that we were the last , we will just have to wait and see, I for one would love to return as it is a super venue.

    • HI Tara!!

      Welcome. I'm also somewhat of a geek. I hope you find this site a "Safe Harbor" to share and learn from you sisters here. oxox Michelle

    • November 24, 2011 7:17 PM GMT
    • Great to have you here Tara. I would love to hang out with you but I guess living in the uk it might be a little difficult lol. I'm sure you've got a much better chance of finding somone close to you than I have. Good luck and have fun. Hugs Lillith

    • HELLO! I kinda wish I'd found this board a little faster, but not seeing it initially gave me a chance to go through some of the forums and make a couple posts and read things already. I'm super glad to have found this place, even if my exposure to it is still rather fresh. This seems like a great place to connect and share.

       

      I think I covered a lot of this in my profile, but I'm a pretty geeky girl. Almost anything that can be associated with geekdom has been part of my interest. I'm also into some nerdy things too, after all I plan to get into electrical engineering (it sounds like it would serve my creative and logical aspects (not to mention the money, which I'm sure we're all concerned with)).

       

      As far as my transgenderism goes, I've mostly kept it to myself. My earliest memories involve playing as a girl and even asking questions about "If I wished hard enough, could I be a girl?" I've also been off again on again. It's not until recently that I've been more active in becomming female. I'm working on the things I can change that won't effect anything, yet (such as changing my voice, learning makeup, etc). I have yet to go out in public en femme, mostly because I want to be able to pass pretty well and also keep from being recognized (might have to go slightly out of town for that to work... but there are other scary reasons that make you want to stay close to home sometimes).

       

      I'm hoping to make some friends here, and maybe get lucky finding other Californians and maybe hanging out (especially if they're close). I'm very friendly and don't bite (unless you're into that sort of thing).

       

      Luvs,

      Tara W.

    • I just want to introduce myself. Before that, I want to say that after reading several messages on the various forums I am so happy I discovered this place. You all seem like awesome people and I'm sure joining will be one of the better choices I have made as a crossdresser. It is obvious that this is more than a online community, it is a family, and I can't wait to be accepted as another "sister" in it.

       

      Well, let me give a brief intro. I live near Toronto(home of the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs) and a huge hockey fan. I'm single at the moment, but looking to find a terrific lady to settle down with. I started crossdressing at about 12, by wearing my mother's clothes. Over the years I've gone through periods of ignoring who I am, until the need to dress just becomes to over powering to ignore. At 35, 2 years ago, I finally accepted who I am and have never been happier. Even though I have accepted and embraced being transgendered, I have only told 1 person, my best friend who is female. She has been a great source of support, which I love her for more than she knows. Since I plan to live my life as a straight male, I don't feel the need to really tell anyone else. I believe there is nothing wrong with my crossdressing being a private enjoyment in my life and it really is no one else's business.

       

      Well, that is all for now. I am excited to be a member here.

      Welcome to the forum hunni!  Cool

    • Hello, I'm Sarah Winfield. 

      I have adopted my favourite female name along with the middle name of one of my Grandfathers who I never met. His middle name Winfield was also given to me as my middle name. I hate my male first christian name. 

      I live in a beautiful part of the country down in Dorset, near Christchurch and the New Forest. 

      I am retired and I am undergoing counselling for GD. 

      After nearly 2 years of taking herbs to feminise myself I saw a GP for blood tests as I was reading of some of the dangers. 

      Luckily the blood test proved nothing seriously wrong just some slight shift in my T and E levels and my SHGB. 

      My future in unknown. I am due to see my GP next week, hopefully, to discuss my Counsellors an a psychiatric assessment report. 

      I look forwards to reading your posts as I hope you will mine. 

      Best wishes,

       

      Sarah

    • Hello Lily and welcome.

    • September 11, 2011 6:02 AM BST
    • Hello friends! My name is Lily. I am 26 years old and I trarsgender. Born in a village in northern Kazakhstan. I was born a boy physiologically. My mother called me Arthur. How many can remember I have always found their inconsistency with the surrounding me people. My voice was female, feminine face, for which I was called names at school "girl" and then all began to say that I'm gay. Since my childhood I wanted a "remake". At the age of 3-4 years, when my mother kept me in kindergarten, I asked to wear on my dresses and skirts. Then it passed, because boys do not wear skirts! Frequent GD and the desire to "change everything" or simply put an end to my worthless life led me to the loony bin. But they said that I am a healthy person, and I had to take away the fact that I do not like. And what about my body? After all, it was formed by male-type, to the same exercise had a greater role in the development of muscles? I was told that the breast has become more necessary to drink specials. hormones. I was drinking, not for long. Made the correction. But no relief came. Why, I thought. After all, I dreamed about this my whole life! It turns out there is. I dreamed that the people around me, take me as I am. And do not say "you're a boy!" or "a girl so do not keep" ... Now I consider myself to GenderQweer often, but still I am a girl. But I have in the country relating to transgender extremely negative. I did the operation last year in Novosibirsk, and the documents I still have not changed. And when they were exchanged for new, I do not know. And change at all? I can not find work, often hear the insults and ridicule in his address. I was very hard. Move so far can not either, no money, and even the registration of residence there.

       

      Very much like to meet you. Learn what relation to the TG in your countries. And make new friends.

    • Hi All,

       

      Bit of a cheek me saying Hi as a "new member" as I've been here before a couple of times before as Lucy James.

      I just can't keep my inner girl down and had to come back to be with other people who are the same as me.

      Hope to catch up with my old friends and hopefully make some new ones too.

       

      Love and hugs,

    • Hey all I am new to this version of the site as I found the old version to be confusing. I am a post op girl and have been for about a year and a half now. I enjoy reading, writing, excersise (when I am not depressed) and drawing. I am currently writing and drawing a trans story I call 'Sky'. It started off as a webcomic however I did not like my drawing style back in 08 and have since been working on my style. Last year I started writing the story in book format so that way I have plenty of story to draw. I hope that many people will enjoy reading it ^_^

      I'm a 40 something post-op TS living in the Granite City of Aberdeen, and have recently got engaged to a wonderful girl Ria Elaine, I am travelling down to see her next week so that she can put the engagement ring on my finger!  We are then going to see our newly 'adopted' daughter.

       

      I love 'rescuing' cuddly toys, and have quite a lot. I also like going out to meet friends over a coffee, usually 4 times a week. I have found a warm welcome at my local Unitarian church, and have been welcomed into the Women's League.

    • Hi Karen! I am fairly new to the Gender Society myself. I also knew that I have been different since I can remeber. But I didn't make the leap until I was 40. I am a full MTF transsexual woman. I am so glad to know that you and your wife are coming to terms with each other. I am very lucky, I was twice divorced when I came out. Both former mates understand why and support me for who I am. Same goes for my kids who are adults as well.


      Good luck, Karen. I understand if you don't want to put your photo up on the site.


       


      Best to you,

    • Hello everyone.

      I have just joined this site.

      A middle aged UK resident from the West Midlands I have been TV for as far back as I can remember. I am happily married to a very understanding lady who is still coming to terms with all of this. A lot of pain and hurt has gone on but we are now slowly making progress. On saying that not everyone knows about me - hence no picture.

      I hope to be in contact with a great number of you in the future.

I play guitar, I love music, particularly Metal and Rock ^.^, I love drawing, manga in particular and I love writing, stuff such as song lyrics and short stories or novels Smile. I was also wondering if anyone could help me with the process of changing male clothes to female clothes and styling hair and doing make up ect, :) Thanks Guys <3
