Be sure to wear your Ruby red slippers so
you can click your heels and wish your way
home if you need to. Seriously though,
There is a list of do's and don'ts.
First: its important to try and look like a
lady, not a man in a dress. Believe me, this
will save you loads of aggravation and
anxiety later on.
Second: You should get a second opinion
of how you look. The best place to do that
is to join your local transgender group. If
possible confide in a GG (genetic Girl) friend
and ask for a second opinion.
Third: Practice your female voice. Record it
and listen to how you sound. If you need

Dress conservatively and don't
overdo the makeup. Sometimes less is
more. Remember that 5 o'clock Shadow
has a time limit. The clock on your pumpkin
ticks faster than you think, even with a
beard cover. Note that most women wear
the pants these days.
Fifth: For your first public outing go with
someone you know. Preferably a GG. You'll
feel more comfortable. Also try the mall for
the first time instead of the bars. Save that
step for when your confidence starts oozing.
Sixth: Above all stay safe. Watch those
around you. if there's trouble just click
those ruby slippers.
Remember, this isn't Kansas any more.
