The Town Crossdresser
As a long-time transwoman, I got used to the anonymity of being trans.

Occasionally a letter would appear in Dear Abby or Ask Ann Landers about being transgender or someone would gain notoriety for being caught crossdressed or a new film would be released that included something transgender-related, but usually the topic of "transgender" and all of its relatives were not on the public's radar.

Then the transgenderquake occurred and its aftershocks are still being felt to this day. In fact, the aftershocks are stronger than the original quake. Now something new transgender-related appears in the media every day.

I don't know about you, but there is so much going on that I cannot keep up with it. Most of it is good, but I am overwhelmed by it all. Some days all I want to do is crawl back into bed, pull the covers over my head and dream about the good old days when I was the only crossdresser in town!

  1. I know just what you mean, there is so much at the moment that I can't keep up with it all.

  2. I watched an episode of "I am Cait" Caitlyn Jenner's tv program. She was hosting about six other trans women on several outings around California. It was interesting and is on every week. Check it out.

  3. Hello Stana,
    I really like the cartoon girls at the top of this, and the previous, post. Any info as to where they are from? Thanks.

    1. I found them on the Internet so long ago that I don't remember where! Sorry.

  4. Stana:

    I seriously doubt that there was EVER a time when you were the only transgender in town! ;-)

    Looking forward to your book, by the way.

    Best regards,

    Overwhelming, yes, but I remember those early days when being a lone crossdresser out on the town was a dangerous endeavor. It was lonely too as I recall. Today, it so much less threatening to be out and about and I no longer feel isolated from the rest of society. Additionally, with the threats significantly diminished the girl inside of me has flourished and grown.



  6. I had a huge backlog of articles, some positive, some negative, all relevant when I halted my blog. It was amazing how much the coverage has changed. I think the media's attitude is "gay's not news. We need something else."

    I'm still not sure if it's good or bad for us.
