Ashleigh here- My mantra is minus the Y; hence the more untraditional spelling of my name. I'm in my early forties and started transitioning a few years ago but at a slow pace; things have since intensified and I'm full time, on HRT and planning ffs and srs within the year. I've never been happier than when I had the courage to turn the corner and get on with my new life; I may be the epitome of all encompassing when it comes to my interests. I'm as comfortable in Manolo's at a formal as I am watching my beloved Denver Broncos in sweats; my girlfriend is now clowning me as she has never seen me in sweats (Kind of a diva I suppose)! Anyway, I love football, the beach, Miami, a game of craps, SUNSHINE, and welcoming in friends to my life that I had kept hidden in a dark place for a long time. Hope to meet some of you next week in Atlanta. xoxo Ash!
