Alexis Breaks out of Society’s Expectations

Alexis Marie

Alexis Marie

Hi, I’m a 52 year old and have had to struggle with my gender confusion since the age of 5 or 6. I grew up with three sisters and a strict macho father, so I had to pretend to be someone I knew was not the real me.

I tried so hard to meet the expectations of the social norm as well as what my family expected. This included plying sports, working at my dad’s electrical business, joining the army, marriage and children.

I completed my tour in the army but the marriage failed due to, in my opinion, that I was not happy.

I had moved out at the age of 18 and started dressing fully – it made sense when I was enfemme as if I was whole and complete.

Of course trying to do or be what others expected never seemed to work out. It was after I met my current wife 19 years ago and was open and honest from the start that I’ve been able to be happy.

Although I must still  work as male, with her support and encouragement I’m happy to say I’m now on hormones 3 months now. I came out to my older sister who has spent time with her sister and refers to me as her sister. She said when I told her she cried, not because she was upset but because she thought of the pain and suffering I must have had to go through not being able to tell anyone.

I plan to take the next steps to transition soon and as my sister and wife always tell me,”If you can’t be happy how can you make others happy? Be who you are!”

Congratulations dear! You look lovely, and your courage is an inspiration for us all!

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything. I am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

What a great story! I wish I had been smarter to tell my wife about my femme side decades ago. I might have been living the life I’ve secretly wanted already! But, we can only go forward. You give all of us courage to do just that, Alexis!!

Today was another day fully dressed with mesh garter belt stockings, matching bra and panties , mini skirt, lovely long sleeve blouse, a wig and had my face makeup done at the local cosmetic counter in the Mall. I felt so pretty ! I enjoyed practicing walking like a girl at the mall and being seen and passing as a female. After those experiences and having used the woman’s restroom successfully , got in the car and went to my favorite restaurant and had a Sumptuous lunch and was recognized by one friend I have who knows that I’m dressing… Read more »

Dear Alexis, I identify with your story very much, as I am sure a lot of us do. I knew I was “different” when I was 7, made the mistake of asking my parents if I could please got to the all girls Catholic school. As you said and we all learn, being our true selves is not easy and yet bottling ourselves up, hiding behind the male façade to match societies and families expectations is difficult and painful. I award you a ton of credit with being so open and honest to your wife to be from the start.… Read more »
