My Life As A Girl by Stephan Burt, a Harvard professor, is one of the best essays I’ve read on being a crossdresser when he says, “I’m a man, but I like dressing up as a woman, in women’s clothes, wearing lipstick and bracelets and bright rings and women’s shoes” No pretensions. Just the fun of dressing and looking and feeling feminine. There’s much more in our profile of a crossdreessser in All About Crossdressing  under Transgender Resources in the Library

11-21    Terri Lee Ryan is back with tips on How To Save Your Marriage When You Dress In Public, an increasingly new phenomena in the crossdressing community.

Terri Lee’s take on how to achieve balance in your spousal relationship is an important new contribution to the literature on this subject. Only on Sister House in the Family Room.

11-15    It’s time for a return to elegance in fashion.
