Some Days Are Diamonds

I wrote songs for Johnny Cash. His number one single, “Any Old Wind That Blows,” is one of my creations. I wrote some special tunes for the Burt Reynolds movie, Smokey and the Bandit.

John Denver’s last chart hit, “Some Days Are Diamonds” was mine, also. Recording under my own name I had hits with “The Credit Card Song” and “Makin’ the Best of a Bad Situation”. All of this occurred while I was living in Nashville as a guy named Dick Feller. But, I am not a guy, I am a transgender gal. Since gender reassignment from male to female, I live in another part of the world as a lady named Deena Kaye Rose.

So begins the prologue to my autobiographical book, Some Days Are Diamonds, a chronicle of being a Nashville songwriter and knowing all along that I was transgender. At one time, in the world of Country Music, I was fairly well known by my old “deadname” and if you were to do a Google search now of that male sobriquet you would return a few hundred thousand hits.

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!
