    So over last weekend I took a little step

    forward. I needed to go shopping for girly stuff, the urge was just too much. I've been dying over not having anything to wear, this urge has been going on for a month now (i have really never shopped for myself in public besides running into a store real quick, grabbing one...

    I can't live in the closet any more.

    Two people know that I dress, my wife and a very dear & close friend. As of today three people know. I came out to my eldest son today and he was fantastic, didn't freak out at all and was just "It's your life, do what makes you happy. Will have to tell my youngest son next...

    End The Secrecy

    I am a crossdresser and have had these feeling since I was four years old although at the moment I'm not practising. Until I was six I thought I was a girl and when I discovered being a boy I was disappointed. I thought I was the only one who felt this way until I saw a...

    To Come Out Completely...Would Be Damn Nice/The World Owes Me This And Then Some

    So yeah I'm sick and tired of conforming to society's bullsh-it norms, and I have had it with human malice orchestrating my life to a point where if I had a gun I'd unload the clip into my head, so what do I do? Nothing. If I do or try to do anything I get into legal trouble...

    I've never told anyone about my crossdressing

    nor have i ever been caught by someone. when i think about it, part of me wishes that i had been caught by someone in the past, just to get it out there. but now i am conflicted and dont know what to do. im not embarrased by it, but dont want people to get the wrong inpression...

    I had no choice but to confess to my family

    that I wear thongs. I was not ready at that time and wanted to keep it secret for a little longer. But my hand was forced by the publication on the internet of pictures of me in a thong. I did not want my family or friends to find out this way so a few days after my photos...

    Had some me time, so decided to go with a more

    I have to my wife so far.

    I don't know how the rest of either of our families would react. I think that she is more scared than I am if they did. Everyone has known me to be a man's man type of guy. I'm sure some will be supportive. I'm sure some wouldn't take it so well either.
