    Hi girls!

    I am a 22-year-old crossdresser who goes by Leighton Elise. I have been crossdressing most of my life. My mom and sister started crossdressing me while my dad was at work when I was about 3-years-old. This lead to my sister and her friends putting me in dresses and makeup until I was about 7. During this time, I would also crossdress when I would go over to my girl friends’ houses. Two mom’s actually bought me a wig to wear when I was over at their houses. I eventually outgrew this hobby and gender roles started to settle in.

    When I was about 10, I started to borrow clothes from my mom and sister’s closets and dress up in secret. This lasted until I was about 14. Then when I finally lived on my own at age 19, I decided to dress up as a sexy nurse for Halloween as a joke to cheer up my ex-girlfriend. This ended up reigniting my love of feeling beautiful, feminine, and sexy, and I have been crossdressing on and off ever since.

    In the past few years, I have been through many purges and kept this hobby a secret. I have not purged in over a year now and have gathered quite the collection! I have several wigs (but I only use my most recent one because I fell in love with the way I look in it), about 12 pairs of shoes (about half are booties, and 10 of the 12 pairs have heels on them), 20+ dresses, 5 pairs of pants, 6 skirts, etc. (you get the picture). I would just get fully dressed and hangout at home taking photoshoots and I was completely happy doing it!

    Back in May, I started to come out to a few people. At this point 4 people know (an ex-girlfriend, a former roommate, the former roommate’s gay best friend, the former roommate’s gay best friend’s boyfriend) and they have all been supportive. I recently watched the new Saved By The Bell which stars Josie Totah, who is a beautiful young trans woman, and seeing her do her thing made me realize that I want to start going out on adventures in public! Since this realization, I have started to invest in more cute, but practical clothing, and I have gone on a few adventures (with a mask and safe ones like to the park and grocery shopping because COVID) and loved it! Once things start to get a little safer, I would love to go on adventures with those who know about me!

    I also recently made an instagram to document some of my adventures and build confidence. I am excited to be here, share my journey with you all, build my confidence and hopefully get some advice to help me out on my journey! Also, don’t be afraid to message me because I’ve love to make a few friends!

    Sorry about the long read, but thanks for reading!

    – Leighton Elise ❤️

      Welcome to CDH Leighton.  And, no, your introduction was not too long.  It seems that you and I have something in common, I was 22 once myself.

      Joking aside, it is a good time in your life to be experiencing your inner self at a young age.  Last century, in the 1980’s, I was stretching my feminine self in my 20’s also.  My older sis first dressed me at 5, and I was soon doing it in secret until I was old enough to be on my own.  You have so much fun ahead of you, and so much support behind you here, with no preconditions.

      Kick back and relax and join the threads and discussions,tell us more about you, and learn a few tricks and shortcuts, free of charge of course.

      Thank you for sharing this. Please don’t purge anymore! Worst case, rent a cheap storage unit for awhile if you feel the urge to clear your mind… then when you’re ready, you still have your beautiful stuff! I always regretting purging after a week or three.

      Hi Leighton, welcome to CDH. You sound like an amazing person. 22 and you’ve done soo much. I wish I had accepted my femininity so young. Sounds like you have quite a wardrobe too. I can’t wait to get to know you honey.

      Love Trish

Love to chat and share stories and make new friendships.  So get comfortable and enjoy being part of a special place that really cares about everyone that passes through our doors. Very nice meeting you.
