Being Out

A collection of experiences about crossdressing, and being open about it with friends, family and co-workers

Our son was born a little over a year ago now. He’s pretty awesome :D Overall, he’s been a fairly easy baby, which is great for me as a new parent, though he’s being a minor terror lately! He’s strong-willed, determined, and has clear opinions on what he wants. I like that. I hope we can raise him to be thoughtful and considerate. Approach I want to be a good parent. I said before that when we’d have children, I’d try to be honest and up-front about my crossdressing. This remains the plan. Children are like sponges, and they’ll soak […]

Crossdressing As A Parent: ~15 months in

As has been previously noted, I’m fairly open about my crossdressing. I don’t shy away from it at all any more – I post pictures to my personal Facebook account, I talk about it with friends, etc. But as much as I’ve grown confident in my ability to be authentic about who I am, it’s not done without worry.

My dressing up had slowed to a crawl before that, and I hadn’t really dressed at work for many, many months. I suppose that I was already on a down-swing, and the bearded-ness, and general mental-fuzziness from there […]

Dressing again after a long hiatus

Another Halloween, another chance to push boundaries just a bit. As it turns out, people seemed to really like me as a red-head, and the slightly more ambitious bright pink eyeshadow I was wearing (which is difficult to see in these photos, alas) I didn’t actually crossdress for Halloween last year – I went as Slash from Guns ‘n’ Roses instead, which actually worked out quite well – but this year, figured it was about time to get girly again… specifically Powerpuff-Girls girly! I think I may have mastered the mirror-selfie. Just sayin’.
