I live in the San Francisco Bay Area & they have an event called The Brides of March, where you find a used wedding dress at a thrift shop and men, women and t-girls all get together wearing them. I just found out about it to late this year, but I’m looking forward to doing it next year, after all, when would a girl like us ever get to wear one! Do you or anyone who reads your blog know of a similar event in their area?
Um, this sounds AMAZING.
The Wikipedia article linked above describes this event as more or less a pub crawl and although I don’t drink I think this would be amazing and super fun. Pub crawls often have themes and I’ve heard of some cities that have drag themed crawls and prior to the pandemic Minneapolis had a zombie themed crawl.
I would love to create a similar event but would take the emphasis off of drinking. From time to time I’ve thought about planning a princess themed event where everyone from any gender gathers and wears their most beautiful princess gown. How fun would that be??
If you know of a social/support group, a transformation service, or an organization in your state that would be of interest to our community, please drop me a line with that information and links and I will be happy to post it!
Our primary goal is to create opportunities for transgender women to get together and socialize in a personally affirming, safe, and supportive environment. We also strive to raise awareness and understanding of the transgender community through our online presence and our positive interactions with the public at our events. We’re all about changing lives and changing perceptions.
We’re a warm, caring, and fun-loving group of girlfriends who happen to be transgender! We range in age from our twenties through our eighties and come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. We may be married or single, and may describe ourselves as gay, straight, or bisexual. What we have in common is a desire to celebrate who we are and to support each other.
Our group is open to anyone who identifies as transgender, including crossdressers, transsexual women, and those who are questioning or exploring their gender identity. We also invite partners, family members, friends, and allies to join us. Our spirit of inclusiveness creates a welcoming space where all of our members can enjoy themselves, and most importantly, be themselves.

CHIC stands for Crossdressers Heterosexual Intersocial Club. CHIC has been around since 1975 and will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in soon. They are a small group of primarily married heterosexual crossdressers who gather monthly in Long Beach California to socialize.
This group was originally born in Billings, Montana (see below); but since I have now moved back to Los Angeles, we are now back at home ready to conquer (well maybe blend seamlessly into) the world. The Golden Globes 2015 Transparent series awards followed by Caitlyn Jenners public transition were groundbreaking for the transgender community. Why? We are part of humanity and are simply trying to live life to its fullest without prejudice and intolerance. It is now a private group and prospective new members need to apply. The principles leading to the founding of this group in Billings will continue here in Los Angeles. This is a site for mainly social activities in Los Angeles with a focus on mainstream outings but regular transclub outings (Thank you Jamie Jameson!) and also for learning more about the broad spectrum of the transgender condition/experience since it is important for the public to understand who were are.
Diablo Valley Girls is a non-profit, non-sexual social support group for M to F transgender individuals, their families and friends.
We were formed in May 1991 by two local members of ETVC, since renamed TransGender San Francisco (TGSF).
Although mainly serving the needs of those in the East Bay area of Northern California, we have members in seven states. DVG is an open group and welcomes all mature and responsible persons. Our membership and mailing lists are confidential and our members are expected to observe everyone’s right to privacy.
We are NOT a dating or sexual contact service. Anyone with these interests should look elsewhere.
