▶ Femme name: Carmen Michaels
▶ Location: Austria, in the heart of Europe. Little brother of Germany and known for it’s amazing landscapes
▶ How long you have been crossdressing: I created Carmen a few years ago, but it only got really professional with the profile on Instagram 1 ¾ years ago. It was only when I presented myself to the public and accepted reviews that I was able to develop steadily. So I’m all the more satisfied with today’s result.
▶ Say something about your crossdressing experience:
I first came into contact with crossdressing when my friends persuaded me to dress up as a woman at Faschingsdienstag (a tradition in Austria where people dress up, similar to Halloween). At that time I was so fascinated by the effort, starting with the elaborate make-up, the right clothes, accessories and high heels.
I liked the evening so much that it became an annual event until I set foot in the drag queen scene in Vienna. Since then I have been an integral part of the Austrian scene and a role model for all men who do not dare to live out their feminine side.
▶ Reason you crossdress: I love women and femininity so much that every now and then I just want to be a woman myself. In contrast to women, in today’s society men are unfortunately forbidden to put on make-up or wear dresses and high heels.
The garment for women in particular is so incredibly beautiful and so versatile. That’s why I show all my outfits on Instagram and recently also on Youtube to inspire women and men to wear what they would like to wear. Break social boundaries and be who you want to be.
▶ Things you like doing after dressing up: My times as a closet crossdresser are long over. When I dress up, I love to meet my friend, going out or even throw some parties at home where everyone can come in Drag as well.
Many of my friends love these parties, because there everyone can live out their feminine side in familiar company, where nobody is discriminated against. I want to make the world a better place and educate people to be more tolerant. This is what Carmen Michaels stands for.
