When I first started letting this part of me out I was 100% about blending in almost to the point of being invisible.
As my confidence has grown and I realised the sky was not going to fall on me, I have swung the other way.
It’s not so much about wanting to stand out, it’s more to do with me being who I want to be, and if that attracts looks, so be it. I have never had any insults, aggro or provocation, only compliments and positivity has come my way, whether it be in full on Bianca mode with hair make up and a dress, or my more androgynous brighter younger male look.
I guess confidence breeds more confidence. I love fashion and feel I have a pretty good and ever developing fashion sense. I’ll put an outfit together based on what I like and how I want to look for whatever activity I am participating in. And I’ll walk out the door with my head held high and be confident and polite. If that makes me stand out so be it, but standing out is not my intention, BEING MYSELF is!
Love yourself and be who you want to be.
