My name is Michelle Monroe. I consider myself to be transgendered or I could also be categorized as a cross dresser or transvestite, but no matter what you call me I'm basically a guy who enjoys dressing up in women's clothing. I'm married with kids. My wife knows about my crossdressing but chooses not to participate.
My story is very similar to many of the other transgendered girls on the web. I started dressing when I was very young. Experimenting with Mom's clothes and make up when ever I could. In high school and college I began to build my own wardrobe such as wigs, shoes, dresses, pantyhose, bras, panties and makeup. I even went out in public on occasion and seemed to pass as a woman without any problem.
Once I started working full time I began to expand my wardrobe even more. In fact, my female wardrobe may have surpassed my male wardrobe at this point in my life. I've had many occasions to go out as Michelle. I've gone shopping, out to dinner and even hit a few clubs along the way. I love meeting new people, especially those (male and female) who accept my way of life.
As you can see by my pictures, I'm really into complete transformation. I consider myself an average guy, but when fully dressed even I cannot believe the results. I love long gowns (especially bridal gowns) short skirts, high heels and lingerie.
I don't think I'll ever transition to full-time, although I've thought about it many times. I enjoy being a guy, a husband and a father. But from time to time I've got to get my girl on. The feeling of transforming myself into a woman is the best feeling in the world. I can't describe it. I don't get to do it that much anymore. Between my job and my family there never seems to be enough time.
The internet has allowed me to meet some great friends. People who share my interest. It's been a wonderful experience. I often wonder how my life would have been different if the internet was around when I was younger.
All in all it's been an interesting journey. I'm not sure where it will end up but I'm having fun along the way.
The way I look at it, I have the best of both worlds.
