Having kept Rebecca a secret for so many years, when I retired last October I knew that it was time to give her freedom. I began by visiting Manchester in the north of England for a few days. I took more female items (clothes, makeup and shoes) than male. I was still rather secretive for most of the trip, dressing female as Rebecca only in the hotel room.

During my stay, I twice visited a shop called Transformation. On my first visit, I purchased two wigs and natural silicone breasts. On my second visit on the last day, having checked out of the hotel I went to the shop for a make over. I had everything I needed. I had taken some of my own female items to the shop with me. When the make over was finished, I stayed downstairs in the shop so that Rebecca would be visible to others, rather than sit upstairs in a lounge they had for customers use.

Before I left for the journey home to Northampton, Eileen, a member of staff, wanted to take a couple of pictures. I had a necklace I really like but I had left it in the car. So I just said to her “I’m going to fetch it” and with that I left the shop, walked to my car and returned with the necklace. I hadn’t been at all bothered about being outside in a suburb of Manchester dressed as Rebecca. After the photos, Eileen said “it’s a shame you can’t go home as Rebecca”. I replied “What a good idea” and quickly changed into my own female clothes. I left the shop and returned to my car.

Heading off down the road, I glanced down at the petrol gauge. It read three bars. I guessed that it would be touch and go to make it home without making a stop to fill up. Still I continued on my way.  I left Manchester and headed south on the M6 motorway eventually switching to the M6 Toll road to avoid Birmingham. I rejoined the M6 and then the M1. A further glance at the petrol gauge told me that I wouldn’t make it without a stop for petrol. I was near Coventry, so I visited the nearest motorway services. I pulled into the filling station and got petrol and a sandwich as I hadn’t eaten. I felt quite at ease despite the fact I was forced into making the stop.

So there you are; this was the start of my journey of bringing Rebecca forward in my life and so much more has happened since. I would so much like to share more of my journey. Recalling it all makes me so happy.

Hello, I'm Rebecca Anne and since October last year when I retired I have opened up my feminine world. I live in Northampton In England and am pleased to say since I came out as transgender I have had support from a number of people - my best friend who I first met thirty two years ago, when I told him his reaction was to invite me for Sunday roast dinner with him and his partner - saying come dressed as you feel most comfortable. Some of my Neighbours have given a lot of support too. The hardest thing was telling my Daughter, she said she needed time to take it in and asked that I refrain from dressing femme in her presence, the last time we spoke on the subject she said the same but used I not ready yet which was encouraging. My Son still lives at home and before I could tell him he came home early one day from work and walked in on me sat dressed femme - he asked why are you dressed like that ? I told him because I want to, it is something that goes back Townsend was young. (Ten years old). His answer to my reply was a casual -well if that's what you want carry on. I took that as his acceptances. After my return from my latest visit to my 91 year old Father ( he's 92 in September) on 22nd July I have dressed femme for all but two periods of two and a half hours in the company of my Daughter and Son in law. She told me during the first period that my Son had spoken to her about me and that he was missing the Father and Son moments.

Hi Rebecca,I know Manchester well,some20 odd years ago I travelled up to the Albany Clinic which is opposite ,or was then Transformation. This was after a divorce and was given Premarin. Moving on,I started again on Hormones thru an endocrinologist in USA by pellet form.Super results but expensive. After that I came out to my Dr. who was reluctant to prescribe Hormones but did the blood work,and I bought estrogen on line. Made me feel more complete,and a hell of a lot calmer. Sure starting late will never give you as much changes but mentally it really helps. Now back… Read more »

Thank you for sharing this encouraging story. I am glad all wen well for you, and that you enjoyed your time. The first steps are always the hardest.
I have often said that if we go about our business quietly and with confidence, few if any people take notice. Most folks are so wrapped in their own little worlds that they don’t take the time to notice, or if they do, most don’t care enough to react.

Such a beautiful story Rebecca Anne. I know that there are a lot of us, (myself included) who would love to take the drive like you did and show the world what you really feel inside. Would love to hear more about Rebecca Anne and her new adventures. And hopefully your daughter will slowly accept Rebecca Anne as part of her life.
