What we're about
This is the central group in the Washington D.C. regional area for transgender women, cross dressers, bi-gender, gender fluid, and transsexuals and their partners, families, allies, and friends as members. This Community site is designed for you to network, learn, grow, and come together socially in safe, trans friendly venues. So whatever interests or needs that you have as a trans lady, you should be able to find it in joining us here. However, we do not accept Admirers as members, though they are welcome to events noted as such.
On this trans women Community site, the different trans groups in the metro area post their events and activities here as do individual members who are going out or hosting events. Below is a photo of one of our recent Community-wide Soirees which we hold regularly at the Marriott hotel Lounge at Fair Oaks in Fairfax. The broad range of social and intellectual events are wonderful opportunities to dress up and have fun, socialize, build friendships, share, explore, expand, and celebrate our femininity together in safe and enjoyable settings.
It is also an opportunity to discover and integrate your feminine side, and learn about cross dressing, being gender fluid, or full time transsexual. We offer trainings and support so that you can begin making strides in developing and comfortably expressing your natural feminine side.
It is our orientation that the more often we come out and socialize together, the more comfortable and confident we become in integrating these parts of our selves.
We encourage to become members here those who are transgender, either emerging cross dressers, bi-gender, or transsexual, as well as our significant others and spouses, any friends and allies. And come join us in our posted events!
As such, these events are for those who are passable and not so passable, as we all share something precious together in the gender continuum. Members also offer makeovers and support in learning to dress as a woman. This is not, however, a group for sex, hook ups, or sexual expression of your feminine side.
FOR THOSE NEW TO DRESSING, we recommend that you review our Message Boards for topics and recommended local resources that are relevant for just starting out or coming out.
For example, those starting out or who feel they are unpassable, or anyone looking for trans makeovers, check out where you can get Makeovers or learn how to do make up at: https://www.meetup.com/DC-TransLadies-Community/messages/boards/forum/8630192/?chk_51312359=on&t=1513523928099&forum=8630192&op=unpin
Note also that you are welcome to come to our events dressed as a woman or in male mode. Come and meet us!
MALE ADMIRERS - Concerning men admirers, there is a segment of trans ladies who naturally are drawn to a male relationship, so there are many events where it is noted that admirers are invited. Also the bar and club events listed here put on by tgirlnation ( http://www.tgirnation.com ) are public events designed for trans ladies to meet admirers. And admirers may wish to review members profiles and reach out appropriately to only those ladies that have indicated specific interest in being contacted. Be careful not to generate complaints.
