▶ Femme name: Jennifer X Michaels
▶ Location: New Jersey.
▶ How long you have been crossdressing: I’ve been crossdressing for as long as I can remember, going back to when I was just 7 years old. The urge to dress as a woman has been with me my entire life. And, despite many efforts to ignore it, fight it and wishing that I would be normal, it has never left me. Took a long time, but I’ve accepted it for years now, and have even embraced it, albeit mostly still in the closet.
▶ Reason you crossdress: Crossdressing is a turn on for me. I love everything about femininity – makeup, fashion, high heels, long nails, glamor, etc. The thrill I get from looking in the mirror and seeing a fully glamorized woman staring back at me is hard to describe.
▶ Say something about your crossdressing experience: Until the last six or seven years, I mostly dabbled in crossdressing, for a variety of reasons, including a lack of opportunity and even means to do it. When I first started, there weren’t makeup tutorials on YouTube and there were other personal obstacles. I mostly lived vicariously through other CDs.
But then about seven years ago, I started ordering clothes, makeup, shoes, breast forms, etc. and studied YouTube makeup tutorials and started getting better and better. Finally got up enough courage to post pics and videos on Instagram. That experience opened the door to meeting other CDs and TGs. Prior to that, I had never spoken to anybody about my little secret. But I’ve since made many like-minded friends on Instagram and it’s fascinating to share our experiences.
▶ Reason you crossdress: I like it how I look like when I see myself in the mirror, I like to look at resulting photos (especially professional ones), and I like female clothes and lingerie themselves — the delicate fabrics and how they feel on my body.
▶ Things you like doing after dressing up: I typically take pictures and videos when I dress up. I have yet to venture out of my home dressed up, for a number of reasons. But someday I hope to meet up with others and go out into public places.
