Hi folks, my name is Tina, I am 48 years old and live in Cheshire in the North West of England, which probably accounts for my palic complexion and generally soggy appearance !!
I have been dressing since I was about 5 years old.but it is only recently that i have started venturing out..and what a revelation it has been. I can only wish that I had had the confidence to go out years go...but as the old addage goes "better late than never".
Up to now i havent experienced any negative behaviour, but unfortunately there is always the chance of encountering bigotry, which is sadly endemic in our society. I find it quite ironic that the people who maline the TG community look upon us as soft and weak, when in reality nothing could be further from the truth...how many "normal" guys would have the guts to venture out in female attire !!!
That said though I am having the time of my life, and can honestly say I have never been happier. I have joined several TG groups and am now regularly out and about in my nearest big city of Manchester, which has a well established TGirl community.
If there are other girls who are still in the closet and are longing to take a step into the big wide world my only advice would be...go for it !! There are a lot of us out there...more than you would think !!!
