SILVIA FROM TRANSLINGERIE

My name is Silvia, I am a young, dynamic Spanish entrepreneur (from Canarias), but all those qualities on numerous occasions drift into the background because of my condition as a transsexual person.

Being transsexual is a term that is used to define a person who is born in the wrong body. It is more than a word; we are people, people who breathe, love, enjoy, learn… People capable of carrying out any role, capable of doing what the rest of the world does. Transsexualism nowadays occupies my entire life, both through being one, and in dedicating myself to this world. Neither do I feel proud nor regretful about this; it is simply what I’ve had to live with, and I do it and will keep on doing it the best I can.

Often the term transsexual is used in a derogatory way, and its stigmatising strength is so big it makes us look like we aren’t a person - at least not a normal one. We love, breath, laugh, enjoy, cry - our feelings are as strong as anybody’s. Functionally nothing differs us. We are capable of doing exactly what the rest of the world does, but here we can find a difference. We are asked to demonstrate how we are valuable. We depart from distrust, and it is there when we exert ourselves the most. We know how hard life is, how hard it is to achieve a dream, and indeed, I dare to affirm this: we are more persistent.

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!
