A Breath of Fresh Air as a Trans Girl

Out to Eat with my wife Liz on Left.

Even though we are among the millions of other Americans stuck under the infamous “Heat Dome” and temperatures near one hundred, last night I was able to take a breath of wonderful fresh air.

To do it, I needed to get out of the air conditioned house long enough so Liz and I could make the short trip to our favorite Mexican restaurant. Fortunately, the venue’s air conditioning was working fairly well and we were seated under a ceiling fan. So we were comfortable even though the place was very busy.

For the evening out, I chose a lacy pink and black top I have not worn in ages. Along with my dark blue leggings with tennis shoes so I was very much at ease. It was also fun to shave very close and apply a light foundation coat of makeup before I did my eyes and contouring finally finishing up with lipstick before I brushed back my hair. My goal, which I think I achieved, was a soft feminine look. I helped myself by clipping my hair loosely in the back, allowing long straight strands to fall on both sides on my face. The whole effect, served to lengthen and femininize my face.

At any rate, the most important part was how the public perceived me. Even though I wasn’t dressed in the shorts and light dresses the other women were wearing around me, I thought my flowing outfit fit in well. It helped too I was with my wife Liz and her son…
