over 40 years ago.

How did you start wearing gender non-conforming clothing and why?

It started at a school fancy dress party. It just felt so liberating & comforting to wear a girls skirt, feeling the soft material & the breeze!

What is your motivation now for putting on gender non-conforming clothing?

I enjoy the wide variety of materials, textures, colours & styles. Its an expression of my identity.

What do gender non-conforming clothes mean to you?

Its about creating my own style & listening to my soul & not restricting myself to other people’s ideas of style & fashion. It makes my heart sing & brings me joy.

Most days

Do you go out in public dressed in gender non-conforming clothes? If not, why not? If so, how often and where do you go? Are there any places you wouldn’t go?

Yes in leggings, blouses, modern style kilts, heeled & tall boots every couple of weeks general shopping, socialising Skirts only on occasion so far. I wouldn’t go to certain areas of my local town & the city at night for general safety reasons.

Do you find it hard to go out in public in gender non-conforming clothes?

not so much now apart from Skirts & hosiery which are a challenge, but I plan to wear my skirts & hosiery more this year.

What is your best and/or worst experience in gender non-conforming clothes?

My best experience was last year when I visited Prague & another part of the Czech Republic.I spent 2 days in the city wearing 2 different styles of skirts, sandals & painted toe nails, stayed in a small central hotel with no comments or looks.

The highlight was the small festival/retreat about an hour south of Prague. I wore mostly just above the knee skater, satin & velvet skirts satin blouses. I received many compliments about my skirts & tops & my choice of bronze toenail varnish. There were 2 more guys in skirts there.

Do your family or friends know about how you dress?

Some close family & friends know but I think it’s time to spread my truth to more of them & be true to myself.

Are there people you don’t want to know about it?

Some business/legal advisers

Does your partner accept your clothing choices?

She has reluctantly accepted me wearing what I like at home but is not comfortable going out with me in a skirt yet. She is ok accompanying me wearing ladies heeled or tall boots & leggings.

What is your favorite style?

I like just above the knee or long skirts, colourful leggings, silk & satin shirts & blouses, cuban or heeled boots with hosiery & skirts or leggings & heeled/tall boots. I love ladies silk scarves so wear them as a cravat or with a round neck jumper. I love textures & soft materials.

Where do you shop for your clothes?

I have bought most of my skirts, blouses & leggings in store & 1 dress which I tried on in store. If I see something appealing in a shop I’ll usually buy it there & then in 2 sizes so I can fit at home & bring the wrong size back. My kilts & my Daves brand skirts were online as were my boots. Some luxury hosiery online & good value ones in store.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The main thing is do what makes you feel good & don’t wait too long to experience the empowerment of nurturing your soul. It’s usually never as daunting as you think it is.

Do you have any links you would like to share (i.e. social media profiles or websites)?
