my hero/heroine

Grayson Perry is an award-winning English artist, best known for ceramic vases. In 2003, Grayson won the Turner Prize, which is an annual British prize presented to deserving visual artists.

Grayson is out and usually appears in public en femme. (That is Grayson in the photo on the right at the opening of an art exhibition in London back in February.) I give him/her a lot of credit for that.

I am a writer and a crossdresser, but my writing life and crossdressing life do not cross paths (except for here). It has often crossed my mind to come out as a crossdresser in my writing world.

Initially, it would probably shock a lot of people and I may lose some friends and acquaintances, who are transphobic. But, it might open up a whole new world of opportunities for me as a writer. It certainly would be liberating and would spice up my life a bit, too!


  1. Two words: Jan Morris

  2. Regarding Jan Morris, there is a difference.

    Like me, Jan Morris is a writer, but unlike me, Jan Morris is a post-op transsexual, i.e., he had sex reassignment surgery and now lives 24/7 as a woman.

    I am a crossdresser and have no interest in having sex reassignment surgery, however, if I was able, I would not mind living 24/7 as a woman.
