There is an Autumn LGBTQ+ parade down my nearest City’s high Street coming up.
Anyone been to one?
If you identify as ‘T’ whaddya wear??? I know ‘whatever you want’
I went to get a free wristband to attend and picked up a big transgender flag, so that’s my shawl sorted!
Maybe I’m wrong in this but it seems the trans community is still the least ‘out’ in mainstream society, in the UK anyway, can’t speak for elsewhere. Loads of celebrities out and proud as gay, lesbian, bi, same sex marriages are commonplace etc. But very little trans exposure. Is it because there is no difference in how a L,G,B, person looks, but a trans person wanting to come out will look different from their pre ‘outing’ self? Is it harder for those who know us to reconcile our old self with our new self because of how we look? thus harder for a trans person with the added hurdle of looking different? I know it shouldn’t matter but for many, especially my generation and older it does matter.
Is it because there are far fewer of us?
I am getting a bit rebellious in my middle age but kinda feel I want to represent the Trans cause!!
Do I glam up, bright colours, kinky boots, bodysuit, short skirt? Or do I just wear my skinny jeans, pink joie de vivre tee over my forms and under a leather jacket? If I do my best Bianca will people even know I am there to represent the trans community? Will they think I’m ‘L’ or ‘B’ Am I overthinking it?🤣🤣🤣
Will anybody recognise the flag?
Never been to one so was just wondering what your experiences are?
