The Man in the Red Velvet Dress: Inside the World of Crossdressing

The Man in the Red Velvet DressThis book was written in 1996 by J.J. Allen, a longtime cross-dresser and past president of Powder Puffs of California, one of the world’s largest cross-dresser support groups. It provides an insiders view of a world that few knew about then, even when you are a cross-dresser. This is one of the most underrated books on the subject and to my mind, should be a first read by all those just beginning to explore their feminine side and for their wives and girlfriends. It’s also a good reminder to all of us on just how diverse our world really is.

Mr Allen’s descriptions come from experience and closely parallel what I have personally seen. He identifies nine type of cross-dressers and 13 reasons why we crossdress. There may be more but most of what you will experience is here. Science has gotten closer to understanding the reasons why we crossdress, but do they really matter. We have a need that doesn’t go away and we express it in many different ways .Understanding all the variations is a first step to bringing our community closer together.

The book certainly helped me in learning self-acceptance, a necessary first time in our evalution of a cross-dresser and from there I could being to enjoy this quirk in my personality and well, have fun. I love being a girl (sometimes) and wouldn’t want to miss this incredibly enriching experience.

The book is available in hard or soft cover and if you add any book to your library, add this one. It’s well worth the price.
