Where to start? my name is Siobhan (phonetic “shivawn”) and I am a mature cross-dresser/trans lady - I actually prefer the ‘trans’ label but either will do. I am not full time and I have no desire to transition - I enjoy my male-side too much for that -but my female persona is very important to me. The two journeys? One is the journey of CD/trans - and the other a geographical trip of a lifetime (more of that a little later).

Where/when did my CD journey begin? I’m not exactly certain - but I do remember as a pre-pubescent teen, noticing ladies in long glamorous dresses who came to visit our home - and I somehow knew they wore stockings (this was before Mary Quant and the tights era). I knew that the fabrics of ladies clothes were nicer to touch - much more tactile than the rough texture of male clothing. No Transteenage exploration occurred - I had a very strict religious upbringing - hellfire and damnation were always just around the corner... But, when I was fifteen, an eighteenyear-old girl took an interest in me and I discovered that she wore suspenders and stockings - this planted a seed for much later in my life.

About Transliving Magazine

This issue we have tried something a little different and gone for a duo cover, which features both a trans-girl and a trans-guy. Although Transliving has always been predominately more for the male-to-female members of the trans community we have, and always will, include features from trans-guys whenever they are sent into us. So if you are reading this and are a trans-guy or know of a trans-guy then please do feel free to send in your photos and stories too - we'd love to hear from you! This issue also includes fabulous features on hair removal, interviews with Sara Davidmann and Owen Nichols. We feature various readers views on labels and whether or not there really is a need for them! We also look at Gender Free: 'Clothing Without Labels' And as promised last issue, we also feature the 2016 winners of Miss Transliving International, Miss Transliving Golden Girl and last but not least Miss Transliving Diamond Girl. PLUS all our usual sections on where to go out in our Scene Guide, TV/TS Contacts, Events, readers' personal real-life stories & experiences, advice on fashion, makeup & image styling, Information, Support and so much more!.... What more do you need? With so much going on it’s no surprise that Transliving is THE go to magazine for the Transgender community and their friends and lovers all over the world!
