"WE DRESS TO PLEASE OUR MINDS AND NOT OUR BODIES" PART 3

Continuing Catherine’s thoughts on GENDER...

Gender is ‘between your ears and not between your legs’. [Chaz Bono].

For many transgendered women the intention in wearing feminine clothes is to look as much like a real woman as possible. However, what would be thought of a man with a bald head, beard, hairy arms and legs, sitting in the pub, sipping his pint and puffing at his pipe wearing a red skirt, blouse, visible lacy camisole, tights, high heels, lipstick and painted nails? He isn’t trying to be a woman, just enjoying wearing some of the clothes normally associated with women. He would be ridiculed and most pubs would chuck him out. People would come from miles around just to stare. So going the full nine yards to appear female is the easier option for many transgendered women. Further ‘enhancements’ become necessary such as a facial, legs and hands hair-removal then nostrils and ears and complete torso. Strange how underarm hair is seen as UNfeminine for a woman but standard practice for men?

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!
