I love close ups. This is me at 47, and me now at 66

I swear it was the weather, not the life style?

Loving all the autumn looks, friends! ?☺️

Here in South Florida, autumn means it's in the mid to high 80s occasionally, lol. I love the heat, though.

I came out last week at a thrift shop where I'm the assistant manager.  Saturdays are our busiest day.  This is what I wore today.  It felt so good to just be myself at work!

Sorry… not sure how that last pic got in the post… not intended. It was from the website that I bought the dress from. It can be removed @Jackie C. 

This one is for you Emily

You look comfortable @Becoming Diana in that photo.  I see your name tag has Diana on it too!  I hope it was a good experience for you and that you enjoy more of them.

I so love seeing everyone's style.  There's a sense of happiness in these pictures.

 

I really liked my outfit today.  In my business, I can dress like this and some people still call me bro, but one fan mentioned my transition to a friend of mine.  At one point he came up to the stage and said to me "I see you...and you're beautiful".  It was really affirming.  I'm not exactly out at work, but I'm not doing much to hide it.  It's weird transitioning in such a visible occupation.  It could be a bit disruptive when I go full time...we'll see.SFS-01.jpeg.3887f0d66ed7e6dfaebda2d23d1e37c2.jpeg

That's FANTASTIC. Especially at work. I know for a fact that I would have killed someone by now if I was still suppressing myself in that kind of environment.

Some people are just oblivious. Those are obviously girl hips. Then again, I think we all get misgendered sometimes. So long as there's no malice in it, right?

 

Kudos to the fan who saw the real you though. That's amazing!

 

Hugs!

How? How can anyone call you bro? Well OK, maybe if you have a deep seeded history with them and they're just way too close to see the obvious but, but.....

If people have known you a long time, they still see you as who they knew you as.  They just didn't know all of you.  Perhaps over time they will see it.

@Becoming Diana You look great.  That smile is perhaps always the best part of anyones wardrobe!  You have a dream job for me.  I spent a great deal of time at thrift stores as i found my path.  I was able to find a style in my size without spending a fortune.

 

Hugs,

It was a fabulous day.  One lady told me i look very fetching.  One older man still called me "Sir."  But otherwise nobody else did.  Maybe my outfit was feminine enough to at least confuse them into not knowing what to call me so they didn't use any gender marker at all.

I had an anxiety attack at work two weeks ago from customers calling me Sir.  That's when I knew I had to come out.

Thank you!  I have to admit much of my wardrobe has come from that shop.  It has been a real  boon.

No new outfit for me today but I did get my hair done. I just my stylist do whatever she wants. I love it!

No shame in buying clothes at a thrift shop I do it all the time and have for years.

I can afford to buy new clothes but I just can't justify spending crazy money on clothes.

I love clothes shopping and to me its the thrill of the hunt plus you never know what you will find.

It's so great to think I still look like such a dude, then have others say "no you don't".  I appreciate the comments a lot.  It's so true, the people who have known me the longest have the hardest time seeing it...including myself sometimes.

 

Great hair Liz, wish I had a house-call-hairdresser.

 

Wish someone hadn't stolen my lady's P coat, that is classy.

 

And I wish Diana's thrift shop was in my neighborhood...I would visit often.

I agree 100%.  It's such fun to poke around and hopefully find the perfect piece! 

 

@Ann W you look great in that photo.  I think there will be those that see you as a guy because there just aren't many women guitarists, and androgyny is not uncommon in the music business.  Personally, I love your style!   Rock on!!

Diana, you look great. 
This picture just made a connection… I’ve seen it before, and then I double checked, sure enough I follow you on Twitter. My account is @MmindyMoore and is locked because I’m not out publicly just yet. This means you can’t see my tweets until you make a follow request.

 

Best wishes, stay positive, and safe.

      While I haven't been out of school nearly that long. This spring is 18 years. I come from a town of 1000 people. My class only had like 23 people in it. We are also the last class from the school to graduate as they joined with another school down the road.    Here is where It gets weird. My class was the only one in 70 or so years of them being around. That had the first gay person, and since I've come out of the closet last year. The only trans person.

      I was on Mylan for my last prescription fill. Before that was Alora.  The Mylan was nice and tiny compared to what I have now.   Kymmie

      Jeanette, since you are speaking about her in relation to your own experience, it's fine to mention her by name.  @Charlize is, as usual, absolutely correct.   Carolyn Marie

      Heh! You have that right. I am continually amazed at the instant understanding and patience of people when I point at my throat and shake my head while motioning "I can't speak".   Give me a couple of hours, I'll write up a comprehensive review of my experience at Haben's clinic. I should do this all in MS Word and save them. My previous was lost in the server crash.

      I hope you are doing well, and guess you’ll become a quick note writing expert in the coming weeks, as you resist taking while you heal.

      Thank you for sharing. I couldn't stop after all; I just couldn't hold out very long for similar reasons to those that you shared. So I decided to just be open with my wife and tell her that I have to proceed.   All of this is bewildering to me, since I have been able to plan and control so much of my life up until my dysphoria surfaced. If this were a sporting match, the score is now Dysphoria 10 vs. Nimue 0.   I am mostly content to be losing this battle. However, I am not always so resolute and struggle with moments of panic an doubt, yet these moments do pass and I feel more sure each time.

      I just got confirmation of being enrolled in Sephora's online "Bold Beauty for the Transgender Community"! I don't have many people I can share this with who might understand how exciting this is for me, so I am celebrating with you! I hope you don't mind.   Happy dance!   Nimue

      I couldn't stop if I tried.  My dysphoria had gotten to the point that just the thought of not being able to live as a woman mad me almost suicidal. I hate every "male" aspect of my being so I'm fast tracking full medical transition. My world supports me but it has also cost me my marriage. We tried counseling. She absolutely wants me to transition but couldn't "transition" into a lesbian and the loss of a male partner left a large hole in her emotionally. We realized we both deserve someone whom we are attracted to and is attracted to us.  Still great friends but that was the price of being my authentic self. I'm lucky that she never wanted me to compromise, doing so probably would have killed me slowly. Everyone has their own journey and their own thresholds for what they are willing to do, or need to do in order to survive and live fully.   My advice is simple, if these compromises are tolerable for you and you are mentally OK with them the great.  On the flip side, if they are just an attempt to appease your spouse but they are emotionally painful for you then you need to reevaluate why you are compromising.  I've seen a lot of people compromise their transitional goals out of fear they will lose someone but even then, they don't "fix" the relationship. It just stagnates and resentments occur on both sides. Couples therapy helps you both see where things truly stand and why you are deciding to slow down or why you are being asked to slow down.   I HATE the fact that I've lost my wife, we had an amazing mariage. But we also realised, it wasn't going to survive without resentments. It was out of respect for each other we split. (also why we still love each other and are friends) My life will be harder and sadder without her, but I will also be able to flourish at some point as my authentic self, free to be me without the fear of hurting someone or myself.

      I heard this interview this evening on my local public radio station. Warning; this is a very emotional interview in which everyone cries. They are making a tv series on this ministers life. https://www.cpr.org/show-episode/nov-26-2021-transgender-pastor-shares-revelations-in-as-a-woman/
