It's been warm the past few days. Suppose to be 100+ degrees tomorrow and Wednesday. Ugggh! Too hot for me.

Today, I realized how much I enjoy shopping. Perhaps its because of my transgender status that I appreciate why women like to shop. I purchased some jewelry yesterday and a green v-neck today. Tomorrow? Who knows.

I have an easier time passing than I do
convincing others about my age.

I have been writing a lot of late. I do this when I have much inside of me that needs to be released. Much of my thinking has been from the perspective of a transgender and transvestite.

I am looking for some TG friendly establishments where I can meet other TGs. There's more out there than I thought. I have a couple of invites from some Tgirls. I'm going to get my ears pierced too.

I have always tried to dress well. Coordinating my clothing is important to being well groomed. Now I can really put to work as a transvestite. Women have it good because they have so many styles and colors to choose from.

I am looking for a black dress because I want to attend some formal events with a crossdressing I know of. I also need a new wig. I'm interested in wearing a hat, too. I have also loved hats as part of a woman's wardrobe. Some of the young women should consider wearing a hat because they would look great.

A quiet today today. Spent a few hours dressed up. I wore a turquoise top, blue foral print skirt, and blue flats. My make-up work has improved but still needs some refining. I've been battling an allergy over the past few days.

I hope to be out again this Wednesday and over the weekend. Being a transvestite seems to have made me bolder. It has carried over into other areas of my life. My wife still shakes her head. I guess she's got an unusual mate.

There are times in our journey
when we must go by ourselves.

Only 3 days left in the FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL!

Today I kept thinking about what I need to add to my wardrobe. I'm still in the market for a black dress. I saw three black dresses at a thrift shop yesterday. I think I'll order a new one online. Also saw some blouses and skirts that I liked.

There's so many gender expressions that I don't see how people can narrow the landscape to two genders. Just like there are many different learning styles, there are many gender expressions. Could it be that people are jealous of us?

We were in the middle of a heat wave. It's much cooler today. The other day I purchased a turquoise top at a thrift shop for two dollars. A new thrift shop opened up in my neighborhood. They have some good stuff and the prices aen't bad either.

Tomorrow I will be dressed again. It's suppose to be hot and humid so I'll dress light and cool. I will be out pretty much the whole weekend. I have to look for some tops for my wife (and me) and a pair of flats. There are a number of sales now, so I'm going to take advantage of them.

Remember the FRESH FRUIT FESTIVAL now through July 23.

I am currently reading 'My Husband Betty' by Helen Boyd. This book is written from the perspective of the wife of a crossdresser. I will give a critique of this book when I finished.

The previous book I read was Leslie Feinberg's Stone Butch Blues. I have read three of his books and this one is the best. It is packed with emotions, struggles, searching, and friendship. A very good read.

As I move ahead in my journey, no day is stagnant and neither is time. I'm making the most of my time by doing the things I must do. While the transgender experience is challenging, I choose not to wallow in the negative because it takes away the energy needed to resolve them. Obstacles will be thrown our way but it shouldn't deter from the course set for us.

Yesterday I was dressed for a few hours. I want to go clothes shopping with my wife some day. She still shakes her head but she understands why I dress.

This coming Saturday, we are spending the afternoon in the quaint north Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg. The once decaying neighborhood is one of the hip spots in the city. I'd love to go there at night because there's music, shows and restaurants. We will be going to Coney Island later this summer plus attend some poetry readings and some movies.

I went out dressed again last night. I wore a pink top, denim skirt and blue flats. Some people looked or stared at me but most walked by me. I just enjoyed the warm July evening and going about my business.

The Fresh Fruit Festival starts next week. It will be my first one and I look forward to attending. I love the summer because of the festivals, flea markets, and outdoor concerts and theater.

My wife knows the extent of my dressing. She purchased two bottles of nail polish for me. I going out dressed more and loving it. We need to be out there more if people are going to understand us.

The best way to overcome fear is to face it head on.

Thursday, July 06, 2006

Last night I walked around dressed as Gennee. I felt sooo empowered as I was my femme self. I wasn't afraid or fearful. It felt so natural and my feminine qualitites came out. I have to do this more often.

Sunday, July 02, 2006

My spouse and I spoke at length about my dressing. I shared much with her about it and why I do it. I even showed her some of my outfits. She likes some of my articles so much that she wants to wear them. I can wear some of hers, too. I put on one of my wigs and she says that I look different.

It was a great week for me. Now that every thing is in the open, I'm free to dress up and go out without all the secrets. She can't see me dressed as a woman but she understands that it's part of me.

Enjoyed a great day in the city yesterday. It was a pleasant day to enjoy the pulse and people walking about. I even got a compliment on the blue polish on my toenails.

The deeper that I go into transgenderism, the more I wonder if there were transgenders and crossdressers in my ancestral lineage. So far, I'm the only transgendered person in my immediate family. I am currently doing some research on this.
