So far 2024 has been overwhelmingly satisfactory. It has showered me with blessings and friendships. The experiences at Keystone (Harrisburg) and Esprit (Port Angeles) have positively transformed my life, giving me a more comfortable space to inhabit. I will write more about my experiences at Esprit.

Before, the community only existed virtually for me. I had very limited contact with transgender people and none with crossdressers. Within a hostile and restrictive environment. Keystone gave me the opportunity to experience the meaning of acceptance and at Esprit I had the opportunity to confirm it. I have been touched by the love of all the crossdresser and transgender people I have met at these events and I feel the need to contribute more collectively. Mainly the personal approach to my friends from CDH and TGH (to a lesser extent) has been beneficial and fun. I haven't had better days in a long time.

The most important thing is that I had the chance to show myself, be accepted, loved and even receive compliments that fed my spirit. In the last two months I have done things that I never imagined possible before, like being interviewed for a future documentary by a journalist who inspired my confidence, and modeling. I would have called anyone crazy who had predicted this to me. The best thing is that I don't regret anything, not even the Marilyn experience while I was walking through the streets of Port Angeles and the wild wind lifted up my black dress short skirt as I just finished to cross the street. Almost a panic situation.

I am very grateful for this sisterhood and the new friends who have helped me gain more confidence to experience my femininity in a more complete way. I no longer feel like a ghost. I love you all.

Cinnamon kisses.

@firefly Hi Gisela, thank you for your post. You are an excellent writer and express yourself with elan.

I understand how you feel. CDH is full of wonderful gals. Esprit was like being with all of you all for 8 straight days.

Everyone I met at Esprit was wonderful. Being in the fashion show with you was next level. I can’t believe how natural and comfortable it felt to present as femme 24 hours a day with 100 other girls, not to mention acceptance and respect shown by the people in the town of Port Angeles.Β 

Your skirt incident was very much a Marilyn moment. Speaking of wind you weren’t as unfortunate as the unlucky girl whose wig was swept by the wind into the intersection while she was waiting for the light. A passing car ran over her hairpiece. A kind fellow who runs the pizza place on the corner invited her to freshen up in the bathroom.Β 

I marvel at the challenges us girls have to overcome in our quest for femininity Β ❤️

@leainvancouver Poor girl. Then I am a fortunate daughter. And I had the chance to put on my black dress for a zoom meeting tonight. So still I am enjoying my time. It was amazing to share time at Esprit. As you said everyone I met at Esprit was wonderful. Thanks Lea.Β

@firefly I’m very happy for you, Gisela! It’s such a wonderful and comforting thing to realize that we’re not alone like we had felt for so long. Knowing that there are others like me gave me a sense of calm, but chatting with the girls here gave me a sense of community, of belonging to a unique group of beautiful souls, and I’m grateful that you’re one of them. I wish even greater happiness and success for you!

Hugs, Jill

Gisela, it was lovely to read about your affirming experience at Keystone and I look forward to your post on Esprit.Β  This community is just the best, most accepting supportive sisterhood.Β  It's amazing, and it's a lot of the reason that I am where I am with Fiona now.Β  Although my story is different, I could say exactly the same thing and for much the same reason as you: it's only May, but what a year so far!Β  This is also the one year I can remember that I have actually managed to fulfill a New Year's resolution, you won't have to try too hard to guess what that was πŸ™‚
