Ladies' Soiree in McLean - Then on to Freddie's at 10pm

Join us for the Winter celebration together in a lovely, safe and comfortable home environment in McLean, near the Chain Bridge.  

This Soiree is an opportunity where old and new alike can mingle and get to know each other in a quiet and lovely atmosphere.  It is only for trans ladies, their partners, and GG lady friends.

If you have not joined us before, now is the time to come see for yourself how comfortable and enlivening the experience is being with us Ladies. This is the place to enjoy yourself, gain support, and more fully, comfortably, and confidently integrate all of these parts of your self.

We start at 7:30pm and go until around 10pm.  Many will then go on to Freddie's trans friendly bar and karaoke in Crystal City, 15 minutes away.

For those who need a place to change, you are welcome to come early, from 6pm on (email me to let us know). The event is casual elegance, whether you come dressed as a woman or a man.  A $10 donation (excluding partners) helps defray MeetUp.com fees.

Once you register to come, we will email to you the details, including directions. As usual, we will provide the delicious appetizers and drinks. You are welcome to bring your favorite alcoholic beverage.

We look forward to sharing this evening together to socialize, have fun, make meaningful connections, learn about ourselves and each other, and experience the delight in being a Lady.

Hugs,

Christine & Pamela

    The Soiree photos look like everyone had a great time. As a new member who joined just last week ,I was really looking forward to attending, but had to cancel at the last minute. Bummer ! Now I'm going to Florida and won't be back until mid-March, just in time for Keystone, so it will be April earliest before I can come to an event. Perhaps, even though I haven't met any of you, I can meet up with you at KS if you have DC Girl get-togethers there
    Looking forward to meeting you - Hugs, Gina

      Gina, the first time I went out to meet other in Public was at a Soiree ( Thank you JoAnn) I highly recommend it. It's a causal setting with no pressure, attitudes or obligation to be someone you are not. Come, enjoy yourself, talk meet other and I promise you, you won't regret it.

    Pat and I want to express to all that attended that we completely enjoyed meeting all of you over the last couple of years. As many of you know we are moving to Dallas, TX in a few weeks and will miss each and everyone of you here in the DC area. Also as many of you know Pat and I hosted one of the Soiree's in our home last year. To Christine and Pamela's credit, I am planning on extending this custom in Dallas. I am continuing my membership to this group, so I can keep in touch with you all. Thank you Christine and Pamela for hosting this magnificent event and thank you to all my dear friends.

    So many wonderful, beautiful ladies! I'm a bit sad that I didn't get to chat with everyone. I feel like I was at a banquet and could only grab sample all there was to offer!

    It was GREAT to see so many partners there. And mazel tov to Carrie and Jennifer!

    Christine & Pamela , thank you again for a great evening at the soiree. All the girls were a class of kindness. I sure would like to see your back yard sometime........... in the summer time...'wink' .......in a summer dress,......... 'wink, wink'....... in a bikini........'wonk'. How about sharing pina coladas with all the girls enjoying the sun, each other, and reminiscing how cold it was during the soiree back in January, but how warm it was inside.

    Christine & Pamela I will probably be there as long as the weather holds out and it is not snowing. My oh my it has been a cold winter.It takes very giving, kind, wonderful people to entertain and accommodate so many girls. I know that day will be very busy and if I do not get a chance at the soiree. I want to thank you very much for the invite. If you ever need a foot massage after wearing heels for a time, the massage is on me.

  • Rachel Julia J.

    I hate this. Maybe I'm not cut out for being with you after all. I know that I said I was going to come to the Soiree, but I'm just not ready. I have doubts about myself, and even though I join TG organizations, I still feel out of place. I want to be myself, but due to famly pressure, financial limitations, and just a simple lack of self esteem and will, I can't do it. I'm truly a misfit even as a CD/TG. Sorry, girls. I won't be able to come to the Soiree. I don't think it's ever going to happen at all. Will anyway, have fun. Thanks.

      Raquel, I think ALL of us have stepped out of our comfort zones. My first experience with a t-girl meetup was horrid. I love these soirees! Please give it a chance ~ no time like the present.

    The Soirée was a wonderful get together! I made several new friends, was able to get better acquainted with a few other girls I'd met before and catch up with some old friends as well. The information provided by Sharon & Cindy about Keystone was very useful to me as I'm attending that event for the first time this year.
    A Huge "Thank You!" to both Christine & Pam for being such wonderful hosts!

    Hey ya'll... I just woke up from a long winters nap and its 6pm. It will take me a while to get myself together. I dont know if I am going to make it down to VA now.

  • gina

    Hi everyone!
    I just joined a few days ago and signed up for the Soiree, but a family situation arose that prevents me from attending. I can't tell you how disappointed I am.
    I'm also sorry that Christine put in so much effort for me and now I can't come.
    To Raquel: you remind me of me. It took me a while to meet up with other girls like us.When I did it made me so happy. Now I go with them in public and go out alone. Sales clerks and wait staff call me "Maam". You can do it too. Don't be shy. Girls like us understand and will help.
    Anyone going to Keystone? Hope to see you there!
