Love Before and After Transition

Taking you back prior to my transition in 2010, my love life was average. I did good at dating when I was not in a relationship. I was married twice before and engaged to be married again for the third time. My first marriage only lasted six months, because she said she really was not ready for marriage. The second lasted before it was all over 19 years. I felt like it was a good marriage, but with issues here and there. During my 19 years of marriage I was still crossdressing all through that time, denying to my wife […]

My Keystone Experience

In 2010 I went to my first Keystone Conference, as Karen before I transition full time. When I was invited by a friend to go to this conference, I was so excited to be able to meet old friends and make new ones for life. After seeing a few friends, I checked in with the hotel’s registration desk, and to my surprise I was welcomed with smiles by a wonderful staff. I then checked in with the conference registration table for my name tag and program book. A book full of information on workshops schedules, from life stories to Gender […]

Life With My Family Today

It started two weeks before “D Day”, when I told my family I was going to transition on October 1, 2010, as a woman. I had no idea the response I was going to get from them, with their full support. I told my mother that my name would be Karen. Something she never told me before, that when she was pregnant with me if I were a girl, she would have name me Karen. She never told me that and I totally lost it with tears. What was good my family was accepting me for who I was deep […]

Being Loved by The Church

My life as a Christian changed when I transition back on October 1, 2010. The following Sunday I had to face the toughest decision since my transition, whether to go to church again. The church that I was attending I loved, because it was the church where I gave my life to Christ. Back in my earlier days I use to be a DJ on the side at parties and make 8 track and cassette tapes. Ok, I’m really giving my age away and yes, I am 63 years young. Anyway, God drew me to him through music. I knew […]

My Fourth Year Having Gender Conformation

WOW, I am so excited to say that coming up on April 8, 2020 will be my fourth year Anniversary from having Gender Conformation. I can honestly say without a doubt I would never turn back, and I am 200% Happier than I’ve ever been in my life. On October 1, 2010, I went full time with my transition living as a woman 24/7, but there was still something missing in my life that needed to be done. Having Gender Conformation at the time was very important for me to have. Normally a Transgender person must wait a year after […]

God Has Me Here for A Reason

WOW, where do I start with this story other than saying: “God has Me here for a reason”. There has been so many times I would be dead or killed right now due to work or just by helping someone in need.  So, to start this story off I need to go back before I transition, back in the mid 70’s when I worked for an alarm company.  I worked the midnight shift until 8:00 am responding to some of the alarms or trouble shooting depending on their status or if we had keys to the establishment. There had been […]

Working with the Police and Bridging the Gap

In July of 2019, I received a phone call from a Major Waddy with Prince George’s County Police 3rd District. She called me due to a second murder of a transwomen in her district. I was asked if I wanted to help in some way to get the Trans Sex workers off the street because she didn’t want to see anymore ladies murdered in Fairmont Heights, MD. This part of Eastern Ave is the border line between Fairmont Heights, MD and Washington DC NE. The Major told me that she was tired of playing ping pong with the ladies with DC Police. She told me she didn’t really want to arrest them, because they would just end up back on the street. I told the Major I would love […]

Staying Safe as a Woman

Understanding what I needed to learn and staying safe as a woman since I transitioned full-time back on October 1st, 2010 has been quite a journey. I knew my life would change for the best, but I had no idea it would be to the level it is today. Being the type of person who I am, I always want to help people in need. As a woman, safety is very important. Before when I was a man, I would stop for people who were broken down on the road or in an accident – anytime anywhere. Now I don’t […]

Living A Double Life

Living a double life for 40 years wasn’t easy. I thought after all those years I was like Superman. Any chance I had, I was dressing like a female. To help you understand, I’ll start from the beginning when I was 13 years old, when I first started dressing. I started exploring in my mother’s closet looking at all the hot and wonderful clothes she wore, from medium-length dresses and skirts to mini dresses and skirts. My mom was smoking hot in her younger days. Okay, she still is at her young age of 83. Although my mother had some […]

My Challenges and Changes

Since my transition I’ve faced some challenges and changes in my life. When I hear people say, I made a choice, they really don’t understand that it was a “decision, not a choice.” The way society treats us, we lose our spouse, children, family, home, work, and friends. People want to attack, even murder us. Knowing all this is possible, we still want to be our true selves. Sometimes the pain is so bad, we end up committing suicide. After many prayers, I felt from God a total peace that I was doing the right thing. One of my biggest […]
