Hi ladies, let me introduce myself, I am Lauren Mugnaia. A bit of history is in order. I was named Lauren at birth, not sure what my parents had in mind but I was given a girl’s name. I had to endure a fair amount of teasing in school because I ended up in a girl’s home room and PE class each year. I finally went to the school office and modified the spelling to a masculine version, Lorne, but all of my official paperwork and birth certificate still say Lauren. I have always known I was different, as far back as my memory goes I always wanted to be a girl. I have always been feminine in nature and mannerisms and was teased and bullied for that in school. I never felt comfortable hanging with the guys and almost all my close friends were, and still are, girls. I was only 5 and remember trying on my mom’s clothing and have crossdressed ever since. I have recently come to a full realization that I am a MTF transwoman and now I must face a new reality and see where that will take me. I am a member of Crossdresser Heaven but but joined this forum as I feel it is more fitting for who I really am, a woman, not a male crossdresser. I look forward to hearing from, and sharing with, all of you girls.
