In Memory of a Beautiful PE Sister & very dear friend

       We here at Pink Essence have lost a very Beautiful Sister & Positive role model  by the name of Jamie Robin Gardner......I personally have lost a very dear friend named Jamie.....The world has lost a Wonderful & Caring Soul......But on the bright side, Heaven has gained a great advocate for all that is good about the Transgender Community!

Wandering Thoughts in no Particular Order... Directed at No-one

There are a select few who wish to enjoy the privilege of writing anything and everything they wish, without some of the precepts they expound, to be queried, questioned or offered a different perspective on.

What questioning does, is offer nothing more than an alternative opinion and from those opinions we form a judgement.

Professional bloggers seem to have this disposition of having only their own point of view to promote and in my opinion come to these sites like Pe to…

Why won't he ask me for a date!

I met this really cute guy when I went to get gas about two months ago.  He is an attendant in the convenience store that also sells gas.  He has always been more than helful and always goes out of his way to ask me what I have been doing lately or just to start a conversation.  He knows I'm a transgender person but it doesn't seem to bother him.  He asks me to wait while he waits on another customer so we can continue our conversation.  I keep looking directly into his wonderful brown eyes…

Are you a bludger who doesn't pull their weight?

I nearly choked on my cold gold when I read Chloe's request for assistance with donations and her statement that only 6 individuals have contributed of late in keeping Pe running.

What sort of person has the gall to take advantage of this beautiful site with all it's assistance, it's support and it's opportunity to meet like people in such a way and then turn their back in helping keep Pe going.

In Oztralia, we have a name for such people, they are called bludgers, it's an…

Soo.....what's new?

I have been a bit on the side lines lately.. Been keeping tabs on everyone, making sure everyone here on PE is doing ok.. And seeing so many new faces joining recently. Yeehaaaa!



To those newbies.., I say a big welcome.

If I could talk to each of you, let me say simply..welcome, and know, you have stepped over a threshold, which may be a small step, a hop, or a very big leap of faith.



We each take our own steps in the stride we can manage, and I applaud each of you… Read More

Multiple Roles

  Provider, Father, Husband, Myself... Any of us who started a family, hoping this thing inside would go away only to find at some point you can't push it away any longer finds theirselves in a horrible place. All my life I knew deep down who and what I was inside.  No matter how hard I try. She slips out little by little. I created a wonderful life. Good job, Beautiful wife, Kids, Now in my mid 30's, I feel stuck. Do I throw it all away to be true to myself? Or do I be misurable to only be…

Transitioning is deeper than hormones and surgery.

For me, transitioning started the day I was born -- my conception by a white father and black mother shocked many, and so did my anglocized name - Victoria M Thomas -- however, what would soon come after would be a shocker for me as I grew up. My father tried to murder me because he wanted a baby boy and not a baby girl and my mother had enough of his angst and divorced him. Everything around 1990 turned into a blur as my mom went from a high paying job in the city to becoming a mistress of a… Read More

House Etiquette

Chloe Prince has established this wonderful mansion called Pink Essence as a sort of TransWomen's Shelter for transwomen who have been abused by life and are looking for support so we may be able to return to the world equipped for living within the gender of our choosing on our terms. But anyplace where…

Passing? Why Do I care

I don't get the thing about passing really or the thing about going stealth. I myself see myself as a local supporter of the TG community and the LGBT and I would never turn my back on that. As for passing I only want to look and feel like I do inside. If that means looking like a Amazon so be it, All I want is to be able to look in the mirror and see what I wanted to see all my life and to hell with whatever others think. All I ask from the world is respect and good manners towards me and the… Read More

I'M RICH!

I find myself in a place where I have only read of others arriving at, but rarely ever escaping from – Divorced, Bankrupt, Foreclosed upon, Workforce reduced from my job, and a prisoner of my own body, and yet... I smile.

 

I am thankful to God.  He has seen…

Am I too tall to be accepted as a woman?

I just found a most interesting (non sleazy) site dedicated to tall women.

http://www.tallwomen.org/twotm/





It is a fairly well done collection of information in support of women who are taller than 'average'. Being 6' 2 myself, I have always heard my inner voice tell me that I'm too tall to ever transition. My height has been one of the things I have always resented and kept me from seriously considering a transition many…

Boys! Boys! Boys!

So since this is the topic du jour, I have to add my two cents . . .



First, I like men. A lot. I also know there are lot of other trans women on this site who are attracted to men as well; we may not always be the most vocal, but that doesn't mean we don't exist. I know at times it can seem like I'm the only person on this site who isn't a lesbian or bisexual, but I know there are many of us looking for our… Read More

In the Company of Men

I spent an extended weekend away with the boys. I gave serious thought to canceling, ready to make up some excuse, any excuse to get out of being one of the boys. In the end, I took the trip and am glad I did.


And I didn't come back as one of the boys!


You see, I was so torn about whether to go or skip the whole thing that I spent much of a recent therapy session in tears. It wasn't because of fears about doing something I didn't want to do as…
