Committee 5

UNIQUE COMMITTEE MEMBER

Rachel Dee

I have been trans* for as long as I can remember, at least from my early teens.  Like most of us I went through periods of self doubt and purging of clothes and shoes and all the other things we girls collect through life.  Eventually a sense of self acceptance set in and the enjoyment began.  Being married with children, I was dressing for only short periods of time, very occasionally.

My wife tolerated my little hobby though she never really understood it.  When the children had left home I could indulge a lot more.  Now I try to live in female mode as much as possible; I attend every trans* weekend I can, go out shopping, and go to restaurants with friends, who have been very supportive and encouraging.

If I can help, support and encourage any of the girls out there who are struggling to come to terms with their true selves, I would only be too happy.  I look forward to working with the rest of the Unique committee to move forward Trans* issues.
