Hi to everyone on PINKessence,
It’s been a long while since first coming here, and I hope I spent it well. I’ve spent the last year or so looking for information, groups, doctors, therapists and having the worse time finding people in my area. The closets I ever fine are 60 miles away and that just a distance I can’t travel…Read More
The year 2000, I finally came out. It wasn't by choice, I had been in denial for all my life wondering when it will go away.The years before I was deeply in the closet, working away from home, buying clothes only to drop them off at the good will box on my return to home. Coming out just happenned, I didn't plan it, I had reached to end of denial. I won't go into the horror stories, we've all already lived them.
So now I'm free, on my way to Asheville for the weekend and I don't have…Read More
Contrary to some hopeful rumors, I continue to breathe and move about the world. Not in a Kwai Chang Caine way where I skulk about the countryside involving myself in strangers lives and use to slow paced Kung Fu to solve all their problems, but nevertheless, I am here. I did take a little hiatus from blogging after I ran out of things to say that I haven’t already covered. In the mean time while I dream up and concoct some new spins on things you were only dimly aware of and not that…Read More
OK, my last post was really all about schilling for a worthy endeavor, but the spike in my traffic reminded me that I seem to have maintained a readership in spite of going silent for a few months. Huh. Well, that’s a surprise. Here I thought everyone was here for the jokes or seeing what crazy way ol’ Michelle managed to publically humiliate herself this week. Therein lies the rub. The huge cascade of interesting things that had been happening to me for almost two straight years has finally…Read More

I actually got the letter mid Febuary - it was left unmarked, had no clue where it came from. Only thing that the letter told me was it was 70 miles away next month (at the time). It wasn't until I looked up the postcode that I knew it was the Gender theraphy I had booked this time last year! No phoning, no you've got in. Just a random letter with the sparsest(is that a word?) of information of when and where. But zero mentioning of why.
Well! I jumped up and down literally when I had…Read More
I've always loved being on the stage, things went bad during my rock and roll days, I had to leave.(being shy, the stage was my outlet)
I've pondered my retirement...what to do.
I've always loved the drag queens, and I've actualy praticed at home. I've watched many shows to learn.
I wanted my own style, practiced with no hope of ever doing this, so many wanted me to be Dave.
I get called crazy, but I just want to escape, and share some fun. I wanted to be me, but…Read More
Hello everyone, Where do I start , sadness like I hav'nt felt in a long time, like I have never felt. Profound and to core. Last week my dear mother passed away. She was the light of our family. And I find hard to see life without her. She was a woman of complet grace and humility. She gave of herself and never asked what's for me. She was selfless in her love for her family. I was blessed to spend time with her most evenings these last few months. We talked of her life of her…Read More
My partner's sister asked her husband what he would do if his son came to him and said he wanted to change his gender. His reply was "No, you were born a boy, you'll remain a boy". Then she played the interview I did on a local radio station CJOB (the link:https://soundcloud.com/680cjob/transgendered-life-rikki ) After listening to the entire interview, he said "Well, if…Read More

I have seemed to yet make more mistakes here. I'm not sure if I belong here...some think I'm a mental case, but they have the right to think that.
I've tried to push the limits, show all sides. I've learned that this is not welcomed here. I removed all my blogs, and in the process of cleaning up my photo replies.
I'm going to join the other 5000 here that say nothing. No story to be told, no history. I've not deleted myself, still some pictures, but to be honest, I'm done…Read More
A Journey can give an overwhelming impression that the wrong choice have been made. You should have went right instead of left, filled up at the station 10 miles back or avoided that big city during its rush hour.
It has almost been 2 years since I began this journey. People have left my life, others have came into it. I resigned my job in 2012, because I was unhappy with what I was being expected to become. I had reached the top of my field because I cared about my employees, I gave…Read More
In Oztralia, we still have free-to-air TV as well as Pay TV and we have Aunty ABC.
Our ABC is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation which is solely owned by the Taxpayer, in the same way that the BBC is in England..
Politicians have this mistaken belief that they own it and countless Governments year after year threaten to curtail the editorial rights of this August Body but our Aunty ABC shows no fear to man, beast, or politician and they are renowned throughout the Land as…Read More
My name is Kathy and I am a cross dresser. I have been dressing for a long time and never tire of the wonderful satisfaction and joy I feel when I do so. Being en femme makes me feel complete and I enjoy my dressing whenever I get the chance. I love going out for coffee with friends, dinner, dancing and just chatting.
My cross dressing began just before my teens. I was going through our clothes hamper looking for a favorite shirt when…Read More

While not a student at Harvard, I was lucky enough to be invited to see Laverne Cox speak at Harvard yesterday. She was awesome!! So inspiring, extremely insightful and (it goes without saying) gorgeous!!
Here is the write up in the Harvard Crimson:

About 6 months ago I sat down and wrote and rewrote and rewrote and then never sent, a letter to my family about being trans. Ever since then it has been sitting, on my computer, waiting to be used. This weekend I opened it up, changed some things I felt were too overboard, and deciding first to send it to my sister in-law to ask her if she felt my brother would be ready for such news. I attached it to an email and saved it to my drafts box to send when I had the courage. After thinking,…Read More
I live near Niagara Falls, NY. I am a cross dresser, and I'd like to meet other cross dressers in the area. I have been actively cross dressing for about three years now. Before that I would just dab a little into it. No one in my family know about my cross-dressing. This makes it hard for me to get out.
I am retired now, but previously was a Mechanical Engineer designing and cost estimating machinery. I am a big girl, six feet tall and a size 22W. This makes it hard to find…Read More
In a way this can be an troubling question but saying I was a man isn't really true either . In truth I was in a kind of limbo , only appearing as male ,when in reality I was neither or actually some weird misfit that didn't fit in society .Transitioning is making me a hole person , hopefully one who will fit in with life. At least I'm now comfortable in my own skin & beginning to fit. It's not perfect , may never be but things are getting better. I still need SRS to be fully…Read More
I stumbled across the video of "Family Secrets" on YouTube."
The show brought tears to my eyes because so many parts resonated with my life. It wasn't until the very last clip that I realized they were talking about the founder of this awesome site,…Read More
