Wearing Skirt in Wife's Presence

For the past four days I have worn a skirt around the house in my wife's presence. I wouldn't have been able to do this a year ago. We have never prevented each other from doing the things we love in our 28 years of marriage. I love her for that. I have shared some more things about being transgender over the past few months. I feel freer to be who I really am.

I have realized how comfortable I am wearing women's clothing. I have been comfortable with my transgender identity for nearly two years, but now more so. I have a saying 'Never let others define who you are' and I live by that credo. I don't care what society thinks about me. I love all my brothers and sisters in the LGBTQI community. Nothing will separate me from that.

Hey Gennee:

I am so happy for you in your steps toward comfort in your own identity "skin", and so glad that your wife is working toward a full understanding along with you. Deep is the love that can survive that kind of a challenge, and so glad that you have that in your life!!! And, thank you so much for your unwavering support to our LGBT community- it means so much!! Peace, Vanessa
