Be sure to read the beginning of Chris’ journey.

Chris called me again, recently.  He just could not handle it anymore; he was ready.  “Come on over,” I told him, “and let’s see if I have any answers for you.”  Hanging up with Chris, I called a good friend who works at a salon to see if he could work Chris in today.  My friend gave me a time and said that we would be there.  When Chris arrived, I met him at the door.  “Come in!  We are going somewhere, and forget the way I look.”

We jumped into my car and off to the salon we went.  On the way, I shared what I had planned, and I asked Chris if he/she was really ready.  Chris said shakily, “Yes, I am.”  At the salon, my friend gave Chris a full makeover, and even had the nail tech do her nails.  The makeup artist also did a great job at bringing out the face of a stunning looking young woman.  A new Chris, different from the one who had entered the salon walked out to the car with me and go in. She and I and I drove back to my house where he chose a wig from my collection — nothing too outrageous, but a simple everyday-look wig.  Once dressed and completely transformed, Chris asked if I would go with him to see his wife and tell her everything.  I was shocked to say the least.

Like anyone would be, I was hesitant to say yes.  Recalling that I had agreed to do what I could to help Chris, I agreed.  Pulling up to his house, I noticed that Chris was shaking.  “My daughter isn’t here right now,” Chris informed me, “and I think it’s best that she’s not.”  I completely agreed with Chris that it was probably of good judgement to do this without his daughter right now.   Slowly, we walked to the door and went inside.  A woman with the most surprised look ever greeted us and said, “Who are you and why did you just walk into my house?”  It was when Chris spoke up, she recognized him.  “What are you doing dressed like that and who the hell is this and why is she in my house?

Chris told his wife that they needed to talk, and they walked into the kitchen.  I stayed right where I was; I had a feeling that this was going to be chaotic.  I could hear them faintly from the living room when an angry voice yelled, “Get out of my house and take your faggot friend with you.”  I had not planned to say anything, but when Chris’ wife stomped into the room, I could not hold back.  In a nice calm way, I said, “Look you don’t know me, but you’re out of line.”  In retrospect, I guess that she may have had the right to be in her own house, but I was really only thinking of Chris at the moment.  “Yes, I am gay,” I stated, “Yes, I dress like I am everyday, and I’m proud to be the person I am.”  Without awaiting a response, I explained, “This is the exact reason people continue to hide, lie, and be deceitful, unfaithful, and even suicidal.”  Trying to salvage the situation a little I even tried to appeal to her human decency, “From what he has told me, it sounded like you would at least be decent to him and attempt to try and understand his position.”  Chris’ wife was not having any of it.  She yelled again, and told us to get out.  Thinking it prudent, Chris and I left without further word.

After meeting with his wife, Chris’ fear came back strong.  I assured him that what he had done was in my opinion for the best.   If everything he had told me was his honest feelings, I explained further denial would only hurt all involved.  It may be a little rough in the beginning, but it gets better when one decides to come clean and move forward.  Given all that had happened, I thought that maybe going to the bar and introducing Chris to other like minded people would be the next best move.  Chris agreed.  Once there, I introduced Chris to some friends, and we had some drinks, chatted, and laughed.  It was a good time for Chris and a time to begin the healing process.  Chris was also able to learn that there are other like minded individuals out here.  It was important for Chris to see that there is  love, and not all hate.

Exceptional Voice

That week, Chris became Nikki and seems to be calming down.  Today she called me to tell me thank you for about the fiftieth time.  We have set a time to get together later this week or next.   Perhaps, we will go get a latte, and then shopping which I believe will be the next big step for her.  It is a good feeling when you can help someone in such pain, and watch that person slowly develop before your eyes. She still has adversity before her but I am 100% confident she is going to be just fine.  You cannot go wrong when you help someone, and witness them walking into the light.

Nikki’s journey continues here.

I think I'm doing the right thing here people. Like probably every male to ever get into they're mothers, sisters, aunts clothing I too was just knee high to a pair of my mothers stockings (sounded better than knee high to a grasshopper) and continue to wear what suits me. I didn't choose this lifestyle, it chose me. I also do drag, one could say I'm a silent type of queen for I only participate in amateur lip sync from time to time when I'm at a club or bar. I don't own any male clothing that I'm aware of. I am a strong supporter of LGBTQ+ communities, PRIDE and advocate for gay rights. I'm still confused why there has to be such a thing as gay rights in our world today but it is what it is and I will continue the fight. Allot of people here at CDH know I am a very easy going kind of girl but when the line is crossed I say what it is and no more nice. I do my best to complete my tasks as an ambassador here. If you happen to be reading my profile it say's one or a few things, 1. curiosity, 2. nosy, 3. preparing to interview me for a job or 4. because we share more commonalities than most people in this world. My first mentor (Drag Mother) in the drag life and who also became my best friend always said; "anyone can put a dress on, it's how one wears the dress that counts and matters." K well this bio didn't come out short like it asks but considering who I am and the lifestyle I've led and still follow it's actually damn short. C ya here, Jackie.

Jackie, While we walk on slightly different paths, we share a common goal-to be true to ourselves and live our lives as our authentic selves. The journey is not always easy and at times requires a leap of faith to continue on, but as Teddy Roosevelt once said, it is better to be the one who tries and “who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if she fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that her place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither… Read more »

Hi Jackie, Very brave of Nikki to see things Through. What she was going through is a heavy weight to carry around every day. Yes things will seem difficult at first. But probably the best decision in the long run. I recently came out to my oldest son that I am a cd. He accepted me completely. He said you are still my dad no matter what. And we have always had a good relationship. And he does not think any less of me. And he is glad that I told him. I told him because he still lives here… Read more »

Julie, you were lucky. When I was young and got caught dressing, I was beaten and taken to see a shrink.

I haven’t outed myself to family and friends. I just moved to a new location and don’t know anybody here. I don’t have a wig yet so i won’t go out in a skirt or dress till i do. But i dress in jeans and shorts, wear lipstick, painted nails, and i always wear a bra. I have gone to stores, social security, post office, and haven’t heard or had any negative comments. I feel great doing this. I wish i had started earlier in life. When i get my wig, i will go out in dresses and skirts. I… Read more »
