I’d love advice on how to further explore going out into the world en femme.
Leaving one’s home en femme for the first time is one of the most significant things you will ever do in your life. It’s not something you will ever forget. It does get easier over time, however.
Like most aspects when it comes to gender identity and gender presentation going out en femme is a series of baby steps. The first time I went out was at night and I went to an LGBTQ+ bar. The bar hosts drag nights and a girl like me is a pretty common patron there. No one batted a false eyelash at me. I went to the same bar a couple of times before I was ready to go out during the day and to frequent a place that wasn’t specifically for the LGBTQ+ community. I had a beautiful dress that needed altering so I made an appointment with a seamstress at her shop and went to several fittings before the dress was finished. It was an amazing experience and my confidence and comfort grew and continued to do so.
I have written a lot about going out whether it is about what to have in your purse, going out if you live in a small community, as well as not letting the fake concept of passing holding you back from strutting out en femme. Just stay safe and have fun!
