This article was inspired by a conversation I had with another one of the girls here at CDH.

There is so much which makes this an interesting and special place for crossdressers on the internet, however, so much of it is not apparent to most users. If you love this place like I do, and I know I’m not alone, these folks deserve our thanks.

First of all, most of you know Vanessa Law who had the vision to create this safe haven for crossdressers and transgendered folks, but she wanted it to be different than so much of the other information which is out there. Different, like so many of us feel we are different than the mainstream folks out there. Different in a good way – like we are too!

En Femme Discover Woman Within

So she took over CDH in 2015, which at the time, it was more of a blog and she turned it around and into what you see now. However, like so many other worthwhile things, it takes more than just one individual, no matter how motivated she might be to get it done and then to keep it going.

The goal Vanessa had was to have a judgement free and porn free site where no one is intimidated. A site where both cross dressers and trans girls felt comfortable, encouraged, and supported which I’d say she was very successful at accomplishing.

Yes, it means that overly racy pictures don’t get put up, hitting up on other members for dating isn’t tolerated, and anyone who violates these rules might find themselves on the outside looking in, but it does keep it as intended. If you have a taste for the aforementioned, that’s cool, but there are many places to find that sort of thing if that’s what you’re looking for, however, this just isn’t the site for you.

If you feel that irresistible draw to the feminine like I do, and need a place to talk and simply just hang out, well, I can’t think of a better place to do just that.

Most positions here are done by volunteers, with only very few paid positions to keep the servers and software running. So many people here volunteer their time and skills to make this place happen and without them it would not be nearly the first-class quality site it’s become. Some you might see or hear from time to time on the site, others stay in the background.

Visit Transgender Heaven

I can’t possibly name everyone, and won’t even try, as I’m sure I would miss a few and make them feel bad, which is the last thing I want to do.
Currently there are roughly 20 Ambassadors who provide many levels of support for the members and the site in general. Who do you think chooses the “Featured Members”?  Then there are the Featured Photos, chosen from the many pictures uploaded onto the site each day. Speaking of the pictures, there are those who vet every single picture before they go live onto the site. They quickly scan these photos for anything which may be considered inappropriate for open display.

Have you ever written an article for CDH? Well then you’ve had contact with Sabrina, usually just known as Brina, who is the Managing Editor here at Crossdresser Heaven. Then either she or one of the other five or so equally capable editors go through your article for spelling and grammar errors, ease of reading, clarity of message, spacing issues, or any run on sentences or paragraphs. Unlike many other sites, you have the opportunity to review the edited version of your article and suggest final changes to the assigned editor’s version of your article. I put it that way, as I do submit to other places where the editor does his or her thing, and you the writer, has little or no opportunity to make any final changes to the edited version of your article. As a result, this makes it much easier for someone who does not have much experience writing to have a clear and readable article published here at CDH. So to my readers, if you worry about your writing skills but would love to tell your story, here you have the support to do it. Just get your thoughts and ideas down as best you can and Brina or one of her associate editors will get it sorted out for you.

Visit Transgender Heaven

Then I get to the not so fun stuff like monitoring for those people often called “Trolls” who come in to try to make some kind of trouble for the rest of us. Lots of times it’s obvious but not always. When these people with bad intentions show up, the offending individuals are quickly found and their account is quickly eliminated and the individuals are banned from the site forever! A few years ago, there weren’t as many ambassadors and as the site grew things could get out of hand before any action was able to be taken. Fortunately, this is not nearly as common as it was, and this keeps it civil for the rest of the members. Likewise, our chat room is constantly monitored so it stays civil and someone doesn’t get ganged up on or abused.

When dealing with a wide range of people, not everything is so straight forward and that’s where the structure of this site is set up to assist.
The site is structured much like a corporation is with a lead ambassador who the others turn to for help or questions. In certain circumstances, upper lever managers become something of a go to person for them to get the situation settled.

All of the above structures of this site are set up so members can just have a safe and accepting place to talk about our desires and anxieties related to our feminine sides.

So from me to the paid employees and the many volunteers, I’ll give you all a big virtual Hug!

Thanks for taking the time to read my article, and I would love to hear from you in a response to either my article or one or more of the questions I’ve posed to you below:

  • As a rookie or veteran member of this site, which feature of this site do you use the most often and why?
  • Have you ever been a member of another cross dressing site and if so, why did you switch to Crossdresser Heaven?
  • Who or what inspired you to become a full time member of Crossdresser Heaven?

Thanks girls and have a wonderful holiday season!

Sincerely, Amy

I'm 60+, hetro, married, and love dressing up! I keep saying and feeling like I'm new to this, but I have dressed from time to time since my pre teens, but just late 2018 it seems to have become of a bigger part of me, rather than just a role I played from time to time. I'm interested in music, cars, photography, and plus other interests.

What a wonderful article Amy!! Everyone running the show here have done a super job and I feel so safe expressing myself here. I’ve been here a little over a year now and spend most of my time on the forums, I love hearing many successes and all the help everyone is so willing to give. I found a couple of other CD sights before stumbling on this one. those others were basicly dating sights and I was digusted with them quickly. I wish I could remember how I stumbled on CDH but I don’t remember. There have been many… Read more »

Well said Amy. CDH is a wonderful community. When I discovered it, It took a few weeks to decide to set up a profile and become a member. Then, not long after, I decided that if I CDH was so good and important to me, it followed that I should do my bit and financially support CDH. Thus I subscribed as a Baroness and am happy to pay my little contribution to the best place on the Internet! Also, thankyou volunteers, you are respected and appreciated. I wonder how many of us go to CDH first thing in the morning… Read more »

Well said Gianna. I know myself most days I am here twice a day from 5 min at a timto a couple of hours. I just cannot get enough, really enjoying the forums. Almost went stirr crazy the second week of August, we had what could be described as an inland hurricane sweep through the middle of my state with wind gusts of 100 to 140 miles an hour. We were without power for 4 days. The storm was about 60 miles wide and traveled over 200 miles. I was so happy to get power back and look what was… Read more »

I love this site. I was lost in the net trying find such a site and it seemed all I found was porn type or the on line we type. I wanted a place where I could find support, have questions answered and suggestions made by others like me. As Insaid before, I was lost but now I have found a safe place, a safe home. Hugs, Kristen

A fantastic article Amy, I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s no exaggeration when I say that had I not stumbled up CDH I would not be in the wonderful place I am now with myself and my family.
This community is a shining example of the power of the Internet used for the benefit good of all.
Thanks to all those who make this home possible!

Hi definitely agree with this article. Don’t know where I’d be without CDH. Probably on some seedy dating site getting hit on by guys, which makes you pay for the privalige. Last few days have so intense for me and this site has been a God send for me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who help run the site. Girls all over the world owe you so much.

Love Trish

Great article, Amy! To answer your question about other crossdressing sites, I have two examples: crossdressers.com – I used to spend quite a bit of time over there, but during one particularly bad purge, I changed the password and killed the e-mail account associated with my login so I couldn’t log in. Well, of course, when I returned to crossdressing I tried to recover my account and they were no help at all. I appreciate that they want to keep it safe, but I jumped through every hoop they had and they never even acknowledged my requests. But that’s pretty… Read more »
