"The best book I have ever read on crossdressing... written by a crossdresser."
Jane Ellen Fairfax -- President, Tri-Ess International
From the Author
Like most crossdressers, I lived a hidden life - cowering in fear that my dark secret might be discovered. I had absorbed all the media-driven, negative social attitudes and stereotypes. Television and films had shown crossdressers either as objects of scorn or derision. They told me that men in dresses were gay; but I wasn't. They told me that crossdressers attire themselves to attract sexual partners; yet I was happily married. They told me that transvestites were psychologically disordered; however I'm quite well adjusted, thank you. After talking with hundreds of other crossdressers, both in person and in correspondance, I discovered that everything I thought I 'knew' about the subject was wrong!
Over a very short time I left 'the closet' and learned to become an emancipated crossdresser, free to express my feminine attributes and to enjoy the experience without shame or guilt.
It's not that difficult, really. Now that I have accepted myself and all of my gifts of gender, life seem much less complicated. Once I was an angry person, no doubt due to the stress of keeping such an important part of my personality a secret as well as from the frustration at not being able to change it, no matter how desperately I tried. No longer. Now, life is sweet again.
