The local trans event of the year is next Saturday when my support group has its annual banquet and awards dinner. This is a glamorous event with 50 or so ladies in attendance all dressed to kill in evening gowns and cocktail dresses.
The evening includes dinner, speeches, awards, dancing, and entertainment.
I usually participate in the entertainment portion of the program lipsynching to some obscure tune from the distant past. Last year, I lipsynched to a relatively unknown Leslie Gore song called "Sometimes I Wish I Were A Boy," an unrequited love song sung by a boy dressed as a girl singing about a girl who wished that she could occasionally be a boy. Talk about gender-bending!
This year, my gender-bending will be limited to lipsynching to a song that is usually sung by male performers.
I usually wear cocktail dresses to the banquet and this year probably will be no different. I am 75% sure of what I am going to wear, but with a week to go, you never know what old treasure I might find in my closet.
And needless to say, a full report with photos will appear here. (The accompanying photo shows me dressed up for last year's banquet.)
By the way, if you are in the area, there is still time to make plans to attend the banquet. Go here for more information.
