There are few things about our community that bring me as much joy as seeing others blossom into who they were meant to be. Whether it is small steps of progress, or giant leaps of triumph, my heart over flows as I read their words. Some are tear soaked with joy barely peaking through around the edges, and others are brimming with smiles. All are beautiful.
Danielle Finds Acceptance
My birth name is Dillon but lately I have been going by Daniella because I finally got to come out to my wife. My wife and I have been together for almost two years now and I have been a crossdresser all my life – even when I was a little boy. It was not easy to get this far, it was a long and scary road. [Ed: Ain’t that the truth ladies!] I am young but I know what I like who I like and who I am. For now this what I can tell you…
When I was a teenager I always had my mom buy me pink clothes and tight jeans so I can at least get close to who I wanted to be. Because I know she would never accept me dressing, but as time went on I got more adventurous. I had girl friends who would throw away clothes, but I would say its a waste and I would wear them instead. I got through those years that was.
As time progressed I became an adult, and went away to college in a big city. I felt like I could dress freely, which I did only in the confines of my house. But I was happy being me. Then I turned 19 and I met my wife. I threw away everything because I could not bear her to know [Ed: How many have tried to hide who we are from those we love so dearly?]. It went on normally for almost a year and then it happened.
One day she went to work so I went and dressed up in her clothes and make up that I bought myself and sat around the house doing my own thing. She she walked in and caught me in the act of dress up, so I immediately showered and changed and we had a long talk about what was going on. I explained myself, I told her that I was not homosexual but I was just a transvestite . She took some time getting used to it but she was bisexual so i think that helped out the situation. Since then things have worked out well and she encourages me to dress up , because she wants me to be happy so some nights we have a girls night where I dress up we go to a movie or dinner.
There is the catch – it has to only be at night so no one can really recognize us because we live in a small town and rumors travel fast. She cant let her parents know but that’s for the best anyhow. The moral of the story is sometimes just talking things out until every one can agree can work out for the best me. My wife and I are still married and still have relations all the time and that will never change she loves me for me even with my flaw. Thanks for reading,
