Which types of gender non-conforming clothing do you enjoy wearing?

Skirts, hosiery, heels, dresses, bras

When did you start wearing gender non-conforming clothing?

My entire life!

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

I always favored beautiful clothing that always seemed to be women’s and men combined. Years ago I decided to start wearing the clothing I felt good in publicly and realized the freedom to be myself was more important to me than having someone else’s approval.

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

I like how it looks and how it empowers me as a human being.

What do gender non-conforming clothes mean to you?

I believe #clotheshavenogender. So I wear what I think is beautiful and makes me feel good about myself.

How often do you wear gender non-conforming clothing?

Every day!

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?

I wear my idea of clothing publicly every day. There is no place I won’t go dressed as I please.

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

I think we should all surround ourselves with people who support us and love us. It can be a dangerous world, but I have never let fear dictate who I am.

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

I love when men come up to me and tell me they love how I look and then tell me they want to dress like that. We can all be role models by living more authentically. I have never really had a bad experience except maybe when I get a bad run in my expensive hosiery!!!

Do your family or friends know about how you dress?

Yes

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

No. I am fully public with who I am.

Does your partner accept your clothing choices?

Absolutely

What is your favorite style?

Tight skirt, shiny hosiery, stilettos matched with a French cuff shirt vest and sport coat.

Where do you shop for your clothes?

Online and at stores

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Being authentically you is a freeing wonderful thing. We should all be able to be us.
