There is a very friendly person to CD/Trans who has a service, where I had two makeovers and purchased my wigs for the past 4 years (other than six months hiatus due to the pandemic.)

Karen would organize a monthly get-together for CD/TG’s. During my makeover, she would encourage me to attend… These past few weeks, when I had extended time to dress, I was so overwhelmed for Leonara to be with like-minded “ladies.”

I guess the stars, planets, and the moon were aligned just right; I took the opportunity (Kathy’s overnight stay with her dad) to attend the Femme Fever, which you can google, the weekly party at a local tavern just 20 minutes away. Knowing Terri, whom I met through CDH was attending, helped make my “debut” a reality and less stressful attending with a friend. As some of you know, I live in a condo community with very “nosy” neighbors.

I had to go to the basement garage to get to my car. The logistics were planned: wearing a dress or short skirt would be a distraction for a senior community, so I decided to leave my unit wearing black skinny pants, a white bra with forms, a white cami underneath a satin white blouse, loafers, makeup sans lipstick, but including eyeshadow & mascara and a light jacket as a coverup. I went down the stairs instead of an elevator to get to my car. My heels, earrings, and my blond wig I carried in a small satchel. I borrowed a small shoulder purse from Kathy to hold keys, lipstick, cash, credit card, and ID.

With all the precautions taken, I did not meet any neighbors… lol.   Arriving at the Tavern, parking, was difficult to find although my handicap placard saved the day. Before I got out of the car, I donned my wig and put on my open-toe heels and dangling gold earrings. I applied my red lipstick, which matched my polished toenails. I walked the walk as I approached the tavern door. As I’ve always done it before (not), I reached in my purse and paid the cover charge ($15).

I entered and was approached by a lady who welcomed me nicely. I noticed all in attendance were wearing dresses or short skirts. I found Terri, who had indicated that she would be wearing a black and white striped dress. My only contact with her was by cell or text. She complimented me that I was looking good, and that made me feel better.

We had a drink (white wine for this lady, of course) and talked with one of her friends. I had another obligation, so I previously planned to arrive at 10 pm and leave at about 11:30. By the way, when I drove home it was my first time wearing heels and a wig. Since it was almost midnight, I went to my unit fully dressed…

As you might imagine, the adrenaline was flowing, and it took a while to relax and fall asleep. I did take the time to remove the makeup.

Thank you for reading. It was my first time attending a party, and Leonara can cross it off her bucket list. I’m now looking forward to Keystone 2023…

    Such an exciting experience, Leonara! I can envision every precautionary step from thinking your exit plan through to the practice runs, right up to turning the door knob to open the door to your first time out. Anyone who has taken that first step out will remember the nervous anxiety of running through every check you too experienced. How exciting it was, and how excited I am for you. Congratulations! In your story you indicate Keystone is next. Now Leonara, anyone who has been out once can’t wait for the 2nd outing, and 3rd and so on. Each time you… Read more »
