Xdressing in Public

“I soon worked up the nerve to go into a fast food restaurant…” - Anonymous Cross-dresser
In his recent interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce Jenner revealed that during his out of town speaking engagements, he would walk the lobby of his hotel dressed as a woman. “No one knew!” he proclaimed. That is a pretty ballsy move considering how famous Bruce Jenner is. Prior to his transitioning, Bruce also confessed he would cross-dress in the privacy of his own home while Kris and the girls were away. He would raid Kris’s closet, and if you’ve ever seen a Kardashian closet, or dreamt of one, you know it’s going to be massive and full of luxury. Right? Those lucky bitches!
With the ease of purchasing lingerie off the internet, it’s easier for a closet cross-dresser to play dress up in the privacy of his own bedroom. For the thrill of it, some cross-dressers dare to wear their feminine lingerie underneath their business suits whilst at work. Cross-dressing friends of mine, tell me they limit their cross-dressing to gay bars or pride events, because it allows them to blend in. Even in those circumstances, they still feel the judgmental stares. “Back in the day, unless you were dressed to the nines like a drag queen, gay guys would give you the freak treatment,” stated a cross-dressing friend of mine.
For a nation founded by wig-wearing men dressed in frock coats, stockings and heeled shoes, it’s baffling to me that it is still unacceptable for a man to wear women’s clothes. If women can wear appropriated man suits to work, then why can’t we men wear a dress to work? With the overwhelming support Bruce has been receiving, perhaps his story will open the doors for all cross-dressers to live honestly and openly whether they are straight, gay or in transition.
Are you a public cross-dresser? Or do you limit your cross-dressing to the bedroom? Let us know below if you’re bold enough to paint the town red.
