Transliving Laguna Weekend 2016

Last December saw the return of Transliving at The Laguna Hotel in Bournemouth for what was to be already our third year of running this longstanding trans weekend.

As usual, we all checked in on Friday afternoon and gathered in the hotel bar for drinks; and lots of girls met with friends for a very much needed greet-up before retiring to their rooms to unpack and get ready for the first evening meal and disco of the weekend.

Saturday morning following breakfast, we had the obligatory trade-stands to satisfy the shopping bug. In attendance, we had Transcare, Jean’s Vintage Clothing and Tiara Vision. We also had professional makeovers for £15 with Emma.

Saturday afternoon saw a surprise visit from Chrissy and Petrina from our Haddon Hall Eastbourne Fame weekend. As Chrissy and Petrina live fairly local to Bournemouth, they thought they’d pop in and say ‘hi’.

Saturday evening as always was our Gala Dinner and saw a vast array of posh frocks and lots of glitz and glam. After we had all finished our five-course meal, it was time to head down to the ballroom for our last night of the weekend. Once again we had a disco and as it was December, we of course, had to include lots of ‘cheesy’ Christmas songs, and for good measure, we threw in a Miss Christmas dress-theme.This was won by Caroline, and she also received a year’s membership to Transliving and a bottle of champagne from The Laguna. Our runner-up was Suzy.

About Transliving Magazine

Hi and welcome to issue 55 of Transliving International. In this issue, we feature Amanda Richards from America on the front cover. Amanda shares with us her photos and tells us all about her journey as a t-girl and her makeover-service business. This issue also includes a report with photos from our Laguna Bournemouth Weekend from last December which again was another enjoyable and successful weekend. We also feature Defy Models, which is a new modelling agency catering for the transgender community only, and is the first of its kind in the UK. I have spoken with the founder, Mark, at great length on several occasions and he has lots planned for the future. Transliving are also planning to get involved with some of it, but for now, if you fancy yourself as a model but have always allowed your trans status to put you off, or indeed have been refused work because of it, then please do check the feature out on Defy Models in this issue and make contact with them. One feature included this time is Sexual Health, and it is something that we should all be geared up on and pay extra attention to, particularly if you are not in a monogamous long term relationship. I know that the discussion of sex is somewhat still a taboo subject within our community and many prefer not to discuss it, but my motto is; ‘if you're doing it then enjoy doing it but at least know the facts about Sexual Health and that you're safe!’ PLUS all our usual sections on where to go out in our Scene Guide, TV/TS Contacts, Events, readers' personal real-life stories & experiences, fabulous photo-spreads, 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 Cross-Dressing and Transgender community and their friends and lovers all over the world!
