Well as for the physical 'me'; I had an orchiectomey in October of 2019 and my BA in Oct of 2021. Along with that, will be a change to all of my identification; name changes and gender markers.

As for the rest of the 'what makes Michelle tick', come visit the Chat Rooms, and the Forums. As a Manager on TGH, I help to make sure your experiences here are safe, happy, supportive, and educational. You are here to grow and thrive, and we are here to nurture that growth.

I look forward each day to helping to keep TGH the de facto standard for support in the transgender community. I look forward to chatting with you all, and reading through what you all post. And if you come across a transgender friendly or supportive place, drop me a line so we can figure out how to add it to our Local Places.

I've been on this path for nearly 50 years, beginning at age 7 when I wore my grandma's old dresses with my cousins. It felt natural. Later, I went through the fetish stage and fought with my insides. After my divorce 20 years ago, I let Brina out only to bury her away during another relationship. Now I accept that she is more who I really am and live my life in the hopes that my path will one of future happiness.

Over the last 6 years, I've found out more about who I am, the path that I'm on, and what it means to be transgendered. I've also been much happier since I acknowledged and accepted myself for who I am. I'm still much in the closet as responsibilities take precedence. It doesn't help being an introvert by nature, but I will gracefully walk (mostly, ok, not so gracefully) this path as I become a better me.

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything. I am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

I was a crossdresser since age 13. Yet, did not reveal myself untiI 2016. Knowing my true self has enabled me to live fulltime presenting as female. My journey from CD to presenting myself as a Transgender female has left me at times wanting to be more. In other words, I am trying to decide if I will be able to fully transition to my preferred gender

I have been crossdressing since about the age of 7, and took a 30+ year hiatus from dressing while I was busy raising my family. I started dressing again a few years ago, and at times I feel TG, and other times, simply someone who likes to crossdress. I finally like who I am though, and I am moving closer and closer to who I want to be, but I'm not quite sure who that is yet. My feelings go back and forth over time, yet I'm finally at peace with who I am and can't wait to keep moving forward.

A good life living as 'male' and dad but hid the real me away inside...not very well according to friends. I've always been a woman on the inside and always known it. I never denied my feminine personality I've always been seen as female in outlook and manner; I believe being a professional artist made that easier. Long hair and emotional...didn't seem out of place.
I'm divorced with a fantastic understanding ex. We have worked it through and been honest with each other. I would say it is actually better than married...she knew all along I suspect, many things have fallen into place now.
I'm full 'out' and post top/bottom surgery. When I came out, no-one was very surprised; I thought I'd hidden it better than that.
I've set out my journey in a journal, this says it all really

I posted this on CDH, too, about two years ago, but I'll try to give you the updated & abridged version.

I'm sure we all have very similar stories, but yes, I’m a happy girl when I’m me. I am Dawn. That guy is just some other person inhabiting my body. I feel uncomfortable when I have to be him & pretend to be male. I’ve been crossdressing since I was about 11 or 12. Until a few years ago, I always felt like I enjoyed it– but wished I didn’t. I've always felt that the impetus that really awakened the desire in me, was a magazine article. I happened to find it in a closet (How appropriate). Naturally, I curiously combed the pages, perhaps, hoping to find pictures of naked women. But I came across an article entitled, “My Husband Became a Woman”. Suddenly, I wanted to see how it felt to be a girl & started trying on things that belonged to my mom & sister. It felt so good & actually excited me, sexually.

I’m pretty sure that my mom knew about it. She once caught me, trying on a pair of my granny’s shoes & I’m sure that she could tell that someone had been into her clothes– especially when I accidentally got lipstick on a white sundress & didn’t have time to clean it. And there was a time when my best friend asked me if I had mascara on (Apparently, I hadn’t done a good job of washing it off.) I told him, “No, I was taking a nap.” I don’t think he bought it.

I wasn’t gay. I liked girls & had several girlfriends throughout high school. I was in the closet, but when I was with the girls, crossdressing never crossed (pun unintended) my mind. Also, never really thought about it while in the Armed Forces for a few years. But it all came back when my wife & I were dating & we went to a friend’s Halloween Party as the opposite sexes. Shortly after we got married, I played a trick on her, one morning, as we were getting ready for work. She had her clothes laid out for the day. While she was showering, I put her bra on under my shirt. She couldn’t figure out where she had put it. I wanted to see how long it would take her to find it. Again, it felt good.

The following year, I admitted to her that I enjoyed it & asked her if she’d mind. She said OK. It wasn't often, but I got a little carried away, one weekend, and pierced my own ears. No one said anything about it at work, but I’m sure the holes were noticeable. Then, we threw our own Halloween party. You guessed it. She was a butler. I was a French maid.

Our oldest kids are girls. I still occasionally “dressed up” when they were young-- & asleep, but when the boys came along, I purged what little clothing I had.

Once the boys grew up & moved out, I found myself wearing some of my wife’s clothes. And, over the years, she has occasionally let me wear lingerie to bed. Our foreplay involves her doing things to me that would normally be done to a woman. She’s not gay either, although I have daydreamed about what it would be like to have lesbian sex with her. That said, crossdressing didn’t seem to sexually stimulate me like it once did. Instead, it gave me more of a feeling of joy & satisfaction– like this felt right & it’s who I should be.

I'm really opening up, here, and it is quite liberating to do so. Thank goodness that I found Transgender Heaven. I never really thought that the term applied to me, but in the past two years, I've done a lot of introspection and, although my therapist hasn't confirmed it (because I haven't seen her in a while), I've concluded that I am transgendered according to definitions I've seen. I’ve been involved with a couple of different crossdressing groups which have helped me find who I am & to admit to myself that I am transgendered. I was a bit apprehensive about joining TGH, initially, and remained somewhat guarded about posting, but the more time I'm here & spend as me, the more I know I'm where I belong. I enjoy the replies I get from my “sisters”. There’s acceptance & encouragement here. Five years ago, I would have never thought that I could be this open about “my little secret”.

I want to transition, but I have two major obstacles-- money & my wife. She says she would leave me if I did. I couldn’t do that to her. She didn’t “sign up for this”. She’s the best thing that ever happened to me.

I’m spending more time as myself, but I have to be careful not to upset my wife. We've had some pretty deep conversations. She’s accepting that I am a part of her husband; that he needs me. My wife even says that, when I'm me, I seem to be more productive around the house & assist her with “womanly” chores, but she’s worried that maybe she shouldn’t be encouraging me.

Maybe she’s right. When I look in the mirror at my male self, I'm not happy with that old man looking back at me. But, as myself, I’m very happy with the way I’m looking. Very depressing to go back to male mode. I easily “pass” in public-- as a woman 20 years younger than my true age. I look & feel younger when I’m me. When I exercise, for some reason, I feel stronger & more energetic as myself. Many people, who have seen pictures of me or seen me at one of those Halloween parties, say that I look better as a woman than I do as a man. I have to agree.

My wife even says that I've improved much with my voice. We've had some “Girls Days Out”, going shopping, having lunch & getting manicures & pedicures.

Sometimes, I get frustrated with my job & other things in my life, but I find crossdressing therapeutic. Put me in a dress and it completely lightens my mood. My depression used to be worse & sometimes incapacitating. Looking back, perhaps subconsciously, I was down because I couldn’t be a woman or, at least, look like one.

Is this what’s missing in my life? I’m worried that I'm getting too old to transition. But I don't want to live my whole life, not realizing my dream & not being who I think I was meant to be. How sad would that be? I think my wife realizes that & that’s why she’s reluctantly giving me the “green light” on crossdressing– so I can enjoy the next best thing to being a woman while I can.

Life’s short. Be gorgeous!

Last Online: 3 hours ago

Mechanical Engineer, retired January 2016 and relocated to SoCal. Have a grown daughter and a grown son with my 1st wife, daughter has 2 daughters. Married 2nd wife in 2005 and she knows everything about me. Perhaps 95% of people here in town know me as DeeAnn. In all my political, civic and non-profit involvements DeeAnn is the person of record. I do present as my male persona on occassion when I am running an errand and don’t want to take the time to get dressed and do makeup or want to avoid confusion. I have no plans to change my name legally. When I went for my vaccine shots I presented as Don so there would be any confusion as to who I am. Anyway, those situations are pretty rare.

Since I’ve retired, I’ve been a board member of our local trans organization and on the steering committee for our local HRC group. I did both of those for over 2 years, but am now resigned from both. Currently I’m a Volunteer Coordinator for the Greater Palm Springs Pride organization. Also Community Liaison Officer with Great Autos of Yesteryear car club, former Chair of the Cathedral City Public Arts Commission, Vice-Chair for Desert Stonewall Democrats, a Board Member for the LGBTQ Center of the Desert and a Docent at the Palm Springs Air Museum (we are rated #14 in the WORLD! And #1 in California).

Hobbies:

BIG motorsports fan, been to all sorts of tracks all across the US, primarily a fan of open wheel race cars (Formula 1, Indy cars, supermodifieds, Silver Crown, sprint cars, etc.) but I also follow sports cars, stock cars and drag racing, have driven a few race cars, used to help a friend take care if his pavement modified, have many motorsports related books and many have been autographed by Indy car winners, Indianapolis 500 winners, Formula 1 winners and World Driving Champions, and Formula 1 team principals

Was a cyclist good for 55 to 60 miles until a mild stroke in the Fall of 2016, looking to get back on the bike soon, also follow professional cycling

Architecture fan, love the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and other architects who did a lot of work here in The Valley under the Mid Century Modern style, visited 2 FLW homes in the San Francisco area in the summer of 2019 that had not been open to the public before, have toured the Robie House, Taliesin West, the now defunct FLW Museum outside of Ann Arbor, MI and FLW structures in Oak Park, IL, San Anselmo, CA, Orinda, CA and the Marin County Offices.

Amateur photographer going back to high school with Polaroids and 620 roll film, 35mm film cameras since the 80’s and digital since 2005.

Computer hobbyist, built a Hackintosh in 2014 and that served as my desktop computer until early 2021. I rebuilt it with current hardware and it is still my desktop machine.

69 years old post op trans MTF, live full time as Joanna. Love meeting people that are open and accepting of everyone. I enjoy dancing, kayaking, fine wines, cooking, grilling, karaoke, entertaining guests and friends at my home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I am very involved with LGBTQ issues and organizations including board member of the Virginia LGBTQ Advisory Board, Vice Chairwoman of Oversight Board of Transgender Diversity Veterans of America. My journey is a long one but would not change a thing. I retired in November 2020 as a Maintenance Director and as an Air Traffic Controller. If I may give a piece of advice in your journey, "head held up, walk like you own the world and smile to tell the world you have arrived!"

I realize now, after over 60 years of thinking I was only a crossdresser, that I have been a transgender woman from birth. I was only a young boy of 4/5 years and remember wishing I was a girl, praying that I could wake up as one. I've always had a strong feminine side, So feminine gestures and mannerisms used to get me teased and bullied in school. I've always identified with females and most of my friends in school were girls. All of this is still the way I feel today. The most recent major change in my life is the fact that I've found out that I am an intersex female! After all these years, the pieces of the puzzle are all falling into place - and now it all makes a lot more sense!

Crossdressed since age 11 til age 53 as of 2018. Joined Crossdresser Heaven in August 2015. Since then I have been exploring my feelings and trying to determine what my best path is -staying CD and just getting out more often and openly as i have been recently; social transitioning outside work; or actually transitioning full time; just not certain what's right for me.

I'm originally from Camelot, but reside in SoCal these days with the rest of the witches that got tired of the dreary weather. Besides, I had a belly full of the patriarchal bs and backward attitude toward women of my kind. That pompous moron that calls himself king, couldn't get a thing done were it not for my magic potions and spells.

For the last 3 years I've learned just how powerful I can be. The ladies here at TGH have taught me this, and are also responsible for saving my life. It's the closest thing I've had to a coven in 600 years.

I am married to another wonderful witch, and with her have made my way successfully into the modern world. I've traded the broom stick for an airplane and give the occasional lift to worthy souls.

I blend fairly well into the rest of the female crowd. Occasionally someone raises an eyebrow, but little is said or done which may reveal a different past.

If there is anything else you would like to know, just ask, I've nothing to hide at this point!

A little poem I wrote: (Hope seeds)

Hope Seeds

Like a seed so is hope, un-watered lifeless it doth remain, un-cared for, grow it will not...

Given gentle love, consistent encouragement, a dash of light, hope begins to grow, a shape forms and roots strong to the heart

Skyward it travels, dropping more seeds as it grows, limited only by it's possessor

Round about it, more seed takes hold, inviting more life sustaining water, more strength giving sun

Well spring of hope, eternal it flows from one soul to the next

If you have little or when you've none, so shall I give you mine

Time to update my Bio.

Hello TGH Member,

I started transition in August of 2020. So far, I have been told I am a different person now. I don't see it so much, but I imagine I have changed a bit.

Starting transition, I didn't create high expectations that I would ever look feminine enough to pass as female. As time goes on, I don't really want to pass as female. I wish there was a third gender and sex to officially go by. Time will tell if that happens.

I am an Assistant Manager here at TGH and CDH (our sister site).
As the original Manager here at TGH, I helped create what you see today. Much of me still lingers around as Cloe has taken TGH further on.

I relate to those who have bad marriages or are traumatized by failed or failing marriages. So if you want to reach out and chat, feel free to. I get regular updates sent to me from the forums and if you ask for me, I will take the time to hear your story and help you if I can.

I also like chatting with cis members, to hopefully better understand if there is anything we can learn from each other. Yes if your here for reasons, I wont hesitate to remove you. But really I think we all need to learn to co exist.

Welcome to TGH and thank you for reading

Jasmine Marie

I have recently met the love of my life, a best friend and a soulmate, all rolled into one very beautiful woman. She knows about "Maria" and is OK with it. We plan on being married this summer (2019) with a beach wedding as we both love the beach.

I love all types of music, country, rock, heavy metal, 80's hair bands, jazz, pop, even some rap. But my favorite is Blues.

Not quite full on southern girl who loves being classy and is spiritual, but knows how to have fun of which being sassy with a heart is part. I really love interacting with people and deeply care for everyone on the trans spectrum. I began living my authentic life full time June, 8 2018 and as of late 2020 am finally able to explore the surgical phase of my journey. I'm a WV Hillbillie through and through, but find myself a stranger in a strange land just doing my best to be me.
