Crossdressing Articles

My thoughts about how to approach life as a crossdresser, and how to deal with it.

This is going to be one of those posts where I suddenly realise that as I get older, I’m becoming more and more of a curmudgeon. So, before we begin in earnest, let’s see if we have the appropriate set of accoutrements… Kids on lawn: check. Nearby cloud to yell at: check. Boots I used to wear to go to school, which was uphill, both ways, in the snow: check. Actually scratch that last one, we couldn’t afford boots. All over reddit, and all over instagram, I see a bunch of people posting selfies where the image has been automatically […]

Girl Filters



What seems like forever ago… which I suppose it was, I sat down with Giselle Mirasol and she interviewed me for her Crossyass podcast! We sat for a good few hours talking about, oh I suppose all sorts of things! I’m very behind in posting this, so many apologies, but if you want to take a listen, I’m on episodes 44 and 45 :) And if you’re the impatient sort, they’re linked below <3 Let me know what you think! <3

The Crossyass Podcast, featuring Liz!

Well this is fucking surreal, isn’t it? Various countries around the planet are going into lockdown or semi-quarantine states in order to slow the spread of a contagious disease. If you’re anything like me, you’re tired, you’re stressed out, and you’re struggling to get to grips with whatever this might mean in the long term. In the short term, for the love of god, wash your fucking hands. I’ve been trying to view this as a bit of an opportunity, or as much of one as I possibly can. I’m lucky enough to be able to work from home, but […]

Crossdressing in the time of COVID-19

Ever since I started being more open about crossdressing, I’ve had my Facebook profile picture set to that of Liz. Which is of course me, but just a slightly different version of me. This has caused some confusion, particular with ride-sharing services. I use ridesharing (i.e., Lyft/Uber) quite a lot. Probably twice a month, and primarily when I need to get home so that I can fulfill the nightly dad routine of either giving my kid a bath, or reading him a bedtime story and putting him down for the night. As per my busy schedule of the last few […]

An Inconsistent Presentation

One of the things I mentioned in my Crossdressing Goals post earlier this year was that I thought it would cool and entirely terrifying to fly dressed (I believe “Flying Pretty” is the accepted terminology, but i don’t like it. Seems presumptive! I’m not sure I’d personally add “pretty” to the list of adjectives that could’ve described how I ended up looking that day, but so I’ll leave that decidedly in the eye of the beholder). Also mentioned in the Crossdressing Goals post was the fact that over the course of the last few years, I’ve been trying to be […]

Flying Pretty (and a Las Vegas Adventure)

I cannot describe to you how much I love The Little Mermaid. The movie is permanently stuck in my brain. Sometimes when I’m a little bit drunk, I find myself humming “Part of your world” on the way home. I have a bunch of assorted Ariel artwork on my wall. I have at least six t-shirts featuring Ariel. I have a Little Mermaid edition compact mirror I use to check/adjust my makeup on the go. I have a limited-edition Little Mermaid eye-shadow palette that I got from Sephora. I have a dress with Ariel all over it. Oh, and I […]
