    What a day!

    My day began with the usual makeup routine and such. This was where my nerves almost got the best of me, but my wife was right there to pick me up and set me on my feet!

    Our first stop was the bookstore, where we made a couple purchases. I honestly felt completely natural and comfortable from the start. Once we were out of the house, it didn’t seem like a thing at all! No one batted an eye, and the biggest challenge was actually paying. But, the clerk didn’t seem to notice/care (and for the record I really only slightly altered my voice, just enough to take the base out of it).

    Then it was off to the mall, for a bunch more shopping! Again, completely at ease! I was definitely “clocked” once that I know of, got an extra long stare from a dude in passing. But no one made a fuss. I had a wonderful time at a wig store, the owner was extremely helpful and didn’t treat me at all different from the women who came in before us.

    Overall, I count this day as a huge milestone and a rousing success! Couldn’t be happier!

      Congratulations Amelia. And to your wife for being so supportive. You are a lucky gal to be sure. Your experience of ‘stepping out’ is very similar to mine. The occasional quizzical look but by and large most folk don’t notice and shop assistants, waitresses and waiters have always treated me with the utmost courtesy and acceptance. But I do live in Brighton where there is a thriving LBTGQ community which most people accept and welcome.

      “Got Clocked”, or was stared at admiringly?  Hard to tell what someone’s motivation is from a distance.  But I am glad you had a pleasant experience, Sweetie.  And I hope it’s the first of many!

        From the pictures on Amelia’s profile, who could doubt that it was “stared at admiringly”!

          Haha I’d love to think so, but even if not, I don’t particularly mind. I’m just doing my thing…and as long as no one decides to be nasty, I don’t mind a few stares.

      That’s fantastic. So glad you had a great day and enjoyed the experience, even though you were sure you got clocked.

        Thanks! I am glad I did a lot of “studying” before hand, reading others’ experiences and such. It really helped me get into the mindset of “I’ll do my thing, y’all do yours” and not worry about what anyone around me was or was not thinking.

      It sounds like a wonderful day honey. You are making me want to go shopping myself. Just need to get good at makeup.

        If I can do it, anyone can! Honestly I am normally a very shy person who does not enjoy being out in crowds and such, but girl mode gives me an extra boost of confidence!

        Definitely! Hopefully as we claw our way out of this pandemic, and the weather warms, there will be more opportunities!
