I’ve been to the nearby lgbtq watering hole a few times. Never an issue there. Other crossdressers? Aside from the friend I was there with the one time, not that I noticed. I did do a conventional straight bar once, but that was a little different scenario in the sense that I was there “en femme” with a sister “en hombre”… so with the band playing and the dim lighting, i imagine we looked like any other cis-het couple, and again no issues.
One of my plans for this year was to try to conquer one or two of the nearby non-lgbtq college bars, and maybe afterwards even a typical redneck bar. But then, pandemic. Big trouble for moose and squirrel. So these plans are off the table for the near future. Drats, foiled again.
