    • Hi everyone! I'm proud to say that I have recently accepted myself. For as long as I can remember I have felt I should've been a girl. As a kid I would dress up in my Mother's clothes and experiment with her make up. I thought I was alone until I seen other ladies on talk shows. As I got older I tried to tell myself I was just a cd. I knew it was more then that. It wasn't so much about the clothes as it was being a complete woman. Now I'm 30 and I'm ready to take the next step. I haven't told anyone who I personally know about this. I've been trying to find help close to me but no luck as of yet. The closest therapist to me is 3 hours away. I'm saving up for a trip to see them. I'm ready to be the woman I've always felt like I should be.

      A sweet girlfriend of mine on another site told me I should join this site. She said there's a lot of knowledgable ladies here that could help me with advice and experience. So here I am ladies lol. I still got to finish my profile and figure this site out.
      I didn't know if I should put cd/tv or transexual since I haven't started treatment. Ok, I'm a rambler lol. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you nice and pretty ladies! Might I add, all of you are big inspiration to me!

      By the way I'm from Arkansas. Thanks for the very warm welcome!

      *hugs*

    • Thanks for the welcome, i am new to this website, i found it very interesting and informative from a post i saw thanks to a link that came up on google

    • December 13, 2013 1:33 PM GMT
    • Hi,

       

      I'm in the beginning stages of my transition to a woman. I joined this site so I can get in contact with fellow trans* people who may be able to offer me advice and support. It can get lonely sometimes and I think it's good to discuss things with people who've had similar experiences.

       

      Thanks for welcoming me to this site. I look forward to interacting with many of you and hopefully make good friendships along the way.

    • Hi Everyone,

       

      I'm Susie, a T-Girl from North West England.

       

      Have only been 'out' for 4 years but am enjoying it so much.  Do a little socialising on Canal st. with friends now and again and went to my 3rd 'Sparkle' this year...BRILLIANT;  so many of us in one place at once; reminds you so vividly that you are not alone.

       

      Well I think that's enough of my ramblings for now.

       

      Hugs, Susie.

    • Hi there!

       

      My name is Alex (Alexandra) and I'm a 40 year old trans woman. I've recently come out and transitioned to live full-time as a woman, and I'm just starting the long road of getting medical treatment for gender dysphoria.

       

      I'm lucky in that my wife of 10 years is completely supportive, and I also have a lot of acceptance and support both socially and at work.

       

      I've attached a photo of myself, dressed up and ready to go out to the local pub last Christmas Day. I've been so much happier since transitioning I can't describe it.

    • Hi Michelle,No,I've been lazy and I haven't yet bothered with putting any of my music on a link. Which reminds me I'll have to do it and soon. And i notice you are a fan of some very fine music,Michelle. I've been trying to budget to buy some extra equipment so I can put together a new CD. I've got some other things going on. that could take a year or two

    • Hi Samantha,

       

      It's great to see your post  and the sharin of  your love for music.  Perhaps you can share a link to

      some of your music.

       

      I love the 60's girls groups, classic blues, and groups like The Doors, Cream, Martha & the Vandellas,

      Gladis Knight & the Pips, Janis Joplin and others.    My Blues addiction goes to Eric Clapton, BB King, Walter Trout,

      John Lee Hooker, Steve Ray Vaughan and others.

       

      One question: When you were younger, did you ever use your hairbrush as a pretend microphone and sing along with some of the Mowtown girls songs on the radio? I did!!

       

      Only wish there was much more opportunity to hear live music, as most clubs, etc are now dominated by D.J.'s.

       

      Hope you have a Happy and musical new year!

               I logged on a little while ago and it occured to me I'd never said a decent hello to everybody here. Even though it seems like it was six months ago or longer when I joined. I apologize to all of you. I'm Samantha Byrne Leyte and I'm a drag queen. I don't do standup,acting or song and dance,mainly because I stutter and stammer. I play guitar on a '52 Les Paul. My music has been played on SIRIUSXM and I've been published about 15 times as a writer in Perfect Sound Forever(NYC)and our own Frock was kind enough to publish me in two issues. I am very fascinated with the comportment and costumerie of females and I like men and women. I own 7 big hair B-52 wigs and when I was like 7 or 8 I used to see The Ronetttes,Martha & The Vandellas and The Shangri Las on Shindig and Hullabaloo. That's what I wanted to look like. I was fascinated with your typical 1964 or 1965 beauty parlor and I wished there was someway to go in there for the whole works when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I've been dressing all my life on and off and I had a platonic SO since I was 13 helped me with makeup and hosiery. She died in 2005. Basically,I'm a Tranny Rocker and I like blues,rockabilly,british invasion,garage rock,heavy rock,soul music,surf music,punk rock,girl groups,country music, I'm in my late fifties and I'm starting to get old,to tell you the truth. My eyesight is horrible and I've been having trouble doing my makeup. My nephew's SO has volunteered to do my makeup when I go out. I'm lucky she's going to help me out. So you leave Samantha's finishing school looking like Peg Bundy or Cousin Serena. Or Marianne and Ginger. Lee Grant. Anyway,hello to everybody!                          hugs,     salu,          Samantha Byrne Leyte

    • Welcome to GS Majella. Passing is over rated. Sometimes it doesn't matter as long as you are happy.

    • December 24, 2013 2:16 PM GMT
    • Hi, just want to introduce myself, my name is Majella St. Gerard I am a 51 year old crossdresser.  Been under dressing for years, just lately, past 2 years, I have been full on dressing and going out while dressed.  I do not try to pass and I do not wear a wig normally only for pics and costumes.  I feel very comfortable when dressed .  I am about 90% out to everyone that knows me, I don't hide it so I'm bound to get caught dressed sometime.  Anyway, looking forward to chatting ith others. 

       

      Peace & Love

    • Welcome to the site Chris and I admire you for seeking us out in order to understand and support a friend going through their transition. It's a very difficult time for many and having a shoulder to lean on, and occasionally to cry on, makes the world of different.

       

      It's awful what a search engine finds when you type in transsexual though, but I'm glad you perservered and I'm certain your friend will be too. 

       

      Are there any more like you at home? lol

       

    • October 29, 2013 12:14 AM GMT
    • Again, welcom to the site. You found the site that you were looking for, and like crissy said, a gentleman found us. There are a lot of guys that find their way in here that "belong" at the sites you mentioned in your post.  It's always nice when a man finds his way in that thinks of us as women, not objects.  It's nice to have you.

    • October 28, 2013 10:09 PM GMT
    • Thank you for you insight Chris, not only will you learn from the site I can forsee you being a real asset as well, Perhaps we will see you in the chat room soon.

    • Hi Chris, it's great to have you here, welcome to the site.

    • Hello to all members of the GS. I mainly joined because a person very dear to me is a fantastic girl, who is going through her transition, and just wanted to know more about this world which is completely new to me. I am finding this site a great source of information (especially the forums), and I thank you all for your contributions to it. I guess the definition of 'admirer', though not loved by all, really reflects what I am. I admire the courage it takes to live a certain kind of life, day by day, and I admire the beauty of people who are just striving to be who they really are.

      Took me a while to find this website, among all of the dating sites and more seedy venues of the net, but I am glad to be here.

      This is... touching to say the least, a very heart warming yet also pythotic story. It would make an interesting book you could call it "labelless", with the right wording it could make a brilliant emotion based tale of discuvery like the bit in Frankenstine when the monster regales his life.

      Now on a less serious note:

      ummmmmm, satin panties...


      I've always thought about writing! I scored decent marks in school. I just never thought I had a story to tell. When I began to write my profile piece and ultimately my intro piece I just kept adding more. I kept it to a cheeky little bit but there is so much more to my story... All of us have so much to tell. Journeys are just that....a long series of events that culminate in a crescendo. There is a great story about a time that I had to break into my friends apartment by kicking out a glass window with my heels because we locked ourselves out! Stuff like that is what makes a life.

      Lesly,

      I find your story so touching. I very much wish my ex-wife had been as supportive, your wife sounds like an angel.

      I wish my story was similar to yours, in your shoes with all that support I'd like to think that I'd have been living full time years ago, but instead fear pins me down.

      Certainly I'm in no possition to give advice apart from this, whatever you do to make your family happy, make sure you are one of the happy ones too.

      I am very fortunate to be with the most amazing woman in the world! She loves me...all of me. Just last night we had such a great conversation. She said she is more concerned with my happiness and ultimately our happiness than anything else. She said she was fine with the fact that if I begin to transition and we stayed together she would be presented to others as a lesbian. All I can say is that she is a wonderful woman. We share so many of the same dreams and goals. I am very lucky!

    • Thank you Jessica!  Girl you look gorgeous!  You have some fun pics. 

       

      I didn't realize the journey I'd been on until I wrote it down.  Certainly, I lived it and knew all of that had happened, but it wasn't until I wrote it down that I realized how much I had experienced. 

       

      There are some changes going on in our lives that have made me question why I was clinging to a male identity so readily.  My wife and I are on a bit of kick to get back to our old ways of being girlfriends!  Our son is now four years old and he does not even care that I present as a woman at certain parts of the day. 

       

      That picture is from a great night we had where we stayed up far too late and had romance planned, but instead we talked about our future for hours!  It was a great night.

       

      Hugs...Lesley

    • Hi Lesley. Welcome to GS. Thank you for sharing your story. By the sound of it this has already been a long road for you and the fact your wife knows and has been open and even supported you some I'd think is a good sign for you both regarding your future. You are lovely too and I adore that open shoulder top!!  hugs Jessica

    • October 8, 2013 1:37 PM BST
    • I consider myself lucky to be married to such a wonderful woman. She is my best friend, shoulder to cry on, supporter, lover, and so much more.

      My journey is our journey and I would not have it any other way.

    • October 7, 2013 11:52 AM BST
    • Hello, Lesley, and a very big welcome. Be true to yourself, but never forget theother people in your marriage!

       

      Best to you and your family.

       

      Hugs,

      Amanda

    • Hi Lesley, your wife will, of course, be key in working through this. Whatever path you choose, I wish you the very best. 

    • September 28, 2013 11:55 PM BST
    • Nikki, I admire your strength and what you say is true. There is no reason that I can't be a woman and a parent at the same time.

      As you saw in the original post, I have to stop putting the genie back in the bottle. That is what I have to work through.

      Knowing that there are people like you who make it happen gives me the strength to push myself. I am lucky that I have a supportive and loving wife to work through this with.

    • September 28, 2013 7:38 PM BST
    • An interesting post Lesley, and it is always complicated when children enter your life. But have you asked yourself why can't you still be feminine and a parent. There are plenty of same sex couples who are just that and their children grow up perfectly normal.

       

      To use myself as an example, I have children, the youngest of which is just about to turn six and I am still married to my wife. Of course, there are hiccups, for example at parent/school meetings as everyone expects a man and a woman to show up, but this has not had any effect on my children. My 9 year old has her friends for sleepovers etc just like any normal girl her age and they are both excelling in school. Their friends are initially surprised to not find a 'dad' but that lasts about 5 minutes and they then forget all about it. Their friend just has two 'mums' instead. 

       

      I only post this as I cannot imagine having to continue to live a 'false life' instead of being who you want to be. As we always say here, once the genie is out of the bottle you cannot put her back, and do you really want to do that and live a duel life? 

       

      It's very difficult, as I know only too well, because I'm sure you quite rightly put your family before yourself, which is as it should be in my opinion, and only you can decide what the best way forward is. But whatever the future holds, I hope you and your family are very happy.

    • Thank you Briana. I joined GS about a week ago and have been poking around and reading. Just getting to know who the members are. So far I am amazed at the knowledge and support that everyone has and shares.

      I always wondered if there was something like GS out there on the web. Then I found it!

    • September 28, 2013 2:19 PM BST
    • That was a really nice post Lesley. I think you have found the place you were looking for, even if you didn't know you were looking.  This place is a wonderful place to to find, and make friends, and get support also.  I hope you like it here, and I look forward to bumping into you, and hopfully getting to know you better.
