This is the central group in the Washington D.C. regional area for transgender women, cross dressers, and transsexuals and their partners, families, allies, and friends 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.
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 bi-gender, or 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.
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 or sexual expression of your feminine side.
We encourage you 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!
Note that we do not accept men admirers as formal members. However, 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 (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 those ladies only that have indicated specific interest in being contacted. Be careful not to generate complaints.
Our Trans Ladies' events include:
Trans ladies, their partners and friends are invited to join us in monthly Soirees held in safe, lovely locations in the DC area. Come join us in a relaxed, comfortable setting for socializing and meeting new ladies, group sharing, and discussions. Alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and healthy snack foods are available in the Soirees.
TRANS FRIENDLY RESTAURANTS, BARS & CLUBS EVENTS
You are also invited to join us as we go out to trans friendly restaurants, clubs, and piano lounges with various groups to socialize and mingle together. These events are scheduled during weeknights, Friday and Saturday evenings, and Sunday afternoon get togethers.
As a member, you can also post here when you are going out to invite others to join in.
