There has been a great change in my life as Bre. For me, I grew up very masculine and then it shifted in my early 20s. It changed my life around–big time. I have good female friends in my life, and I’ve admired what they wore. I loved the dresses, skirts, and tops. I never got the chance to try them on. I’ve always hung out with them as male. I had the feelings, wanting to go out dressed as female with them. The opportunity never came. Halloween was the perfect time, which didn’t work. I was disappointed as work called and wanted me to come in.

It was a good thing my friends saw something in this and wanted to pay it forward, in a good way. I knew the opportunity might happen sometime. Finally, in October of 2000 that moment came. The asked me what I was going to dress as on Halloween, and I said I didn’t know. They knew how much I admired their clothing.  I was surprised when one of my friends looked at me and asked if I would dress up as female. My eyes lit up knowing it was finally going to happen. Of course, I said, “Let’s do it!”

It was eight weeks before Halloween. The first thing was getting my ears pierced at a tattoo and piercing shop. Next was to a lingerie shop to buy a garter belt, off-black stockings, a bra, and panties. One of my girlfriend’s had the perfect dress; a knee-length black sleeveless dress. Another had the perfect pair of 3-inch heels for me to wear. I was excited. They said they could style my hair. I took the heels home and practiced walking in them—got fairly good at it.

On Halloween I came home early. I showered and shaved and put on street clothes, bringing the rest with me to the apartment where they lived. I dressed in one of their rooms. One friend had breast forms on hand that she never wore and gave them to me to use. I put on the dress and heels. They commented on how good I was going to look when they got done with me. They did my hair and makeup. I wore a pair of 2-inch hoop earrings. I couldn’t believe how much I loved looking in the mirror and at how good I looked dressed as female. They handed me a small clutch purse and off we went to a Halloween party.

I passed very well. I learned quickly and mimicked the other girls, playing with my hair and the earrings. I loved how the stockings felt against my legs. Something else happened, too; I felt my female side coming out and I embraced it. I decided that this side of me wanted out more. My girlfriends could see that they had a new girlfriend in their life as well.

The tough part was telling my mom, and luckily, I had help. My younger sister is a post op MTF. I had been strong in my support for her. I went to her for advice on telling mom. She helped me out, and I did tell my mom that I am a part-time crossdresser. It took her a couple days to accept it. I told her that I planned to live my life as male and dress as Bre couple days a week. This has brought my younger sister and me together more. I love her as my sister, and she sees me as a part-time sister. My mom realized we were both happy and said she is one proud mom of a daughter and her son and sometimes daughter.

I have loved dressing as Bre ever since and I still enjoy my life as male. I’m a part-time crossdresser to this day and with a supportive wife. It happened that one of my female friends introduced me to her. My wife enjoys having Bre as a girlfriend, too. She goes shopping for clothes with Bre; I am a shoeaholic. If I don’t have the pair, I buy them. I have to give credit to my sister for helping me out in becoming who I am really am to this day. I love my life this way, and I have not looked back since.

    That’s a lovely story! I can relate to a lot of it, I had a similar experience with my awakening and past girlfriends that encouraged and supported it.

    Hi Bre, Love the story! My situation has been different. But now I have female friends that I go out with. Shopping ,clubs. They are very supportive. And see me as a woman. And they have helped me in so many ways!! This past Halloween was the first time I dressed on it. The one night we can get away with it, no questions asked. TC Bre, Hugs Pru

    Love your story Bre!! This is just the type of story that gives encouragement to all of us here on CDH. Iv’e already told one of my 4 brothers, I hope I can tell another brother and my 40 year old niece in the next 2 weeks. Then my other brothers and my mother in the next 2 or 3 months, consequences be damned. I need to be me and live my life as Sandy (at least part time Sandy). Blessings to your mother and your sister.

    Love your story Bre! I’m getting closer to having friends from my everyday life who know Holly, but I’m still not there yet. Thankfully I do have some friends within a couple of hours now who do know Holly, but COVID makes it hard to take advantage of that. One day hopefully I’ll be open with my local friends as well. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great story, Bre.

    I’m a shoeaholic as well, despite my “small” collection of 11 pairs of heels is stored in a luggage bag, far from home.
