▶ Femme name: Anette Lavette (A funny thing about the name is that in Swedish “Lavette” is a slap to the cheek, a “bitchslap” more or less. However, I have discovered that it means a whole different thing in french. In french it’s a short of dish cloth or a nickname for a coward. Or so I’m told anyway).
▶ Location: Örebro, Sweden
▶ How long you have been crossdressing : I would say all my life more or less. But I learned from a very early age that I couldn’t express these things to anyone because I would only get in trouble if I did. I started dressing regularly from 9-10 years of age though, before that it was a bit more sporadically.
▶ Say something about your crossdressing experience: I used to be so ashamed of myself and think that there was something wrong with me until I finally got the courage to come out to my wife. That made me accept myself just as I am and I can finally have fun with it. Going out with a bunch of girls to a bar or a club might be the most fun I’ve had in years. Decades even.
▶ Reason you crossdress: It’s a part of me, it’s an expression I need to have to be able to be fully me. I’ve tried to stop so many times but it just didn’t work and I always came back to it. Now that I finally can allow myself to do it, it has become very important to me and I feel much more confident in myself.
▶ Things you like doing after getting dressed: I want to go out and do stuff. Go to a bar, eat at a restaurant and go shopping for example. I just want to go out in the world and live my life.
▶ Your favorite Outfit/style: Classy feminine elegance and office chic.
