This group was originally born in Billings, Montana (see below); but since I have now moved back to Los Angeles, we are now back at home ready to conquer (well maybe blend seamlessly into) the world. The recent Golden Globes 2015 were groundbreaking for the transgender community. Why? We are part of humanity and are simply trying to live life to its fullest without prejudice and intolerance. It is now a private group and prospective new members need to apply. The principles leading to the founding of this group in Billings will continue here in Los Angeles. This is a site for social activities in Los Angeles and also for learning more about transgenderism since I think it is important for the public to understand who were are.
PLEASE NOTE: this member site will change soon as I am relocating (again!). For now (as of Friday Jan 16, 2015) it will continue as is, ie. open public Billings site but will change to a private Los Angeles site in the next two weeks.
(November 2014) I recently moved to Billings from Los Angeles and have found there does not seem to be any social scene for transgender persons. This prompted me to start this group is for anyone who is transgender or is a friend or admirer of transgender persons either living in or nearby to Billings. Even visitors to Billings are more than welcome. One major goal is to meet other like minded persons to be able to get together to socialize at public and private outings in a tasteful setting and manner. Dining, drinking, dancing, gambling, museum, nature walks, even a day ski trip to Red Lodge or just about anything you can think of is game for this group. Will try to meet in a weekly or every other weekly manner.
There is no "dress code" meaning you can come en femme (if you are MTF) or drab. For the less experienced, age appropriate dress is always a good rule of thumb. My personal preference is to be dressed fabulous but sometimes work or other things get in the way (it does take a while to ready oneself for an outing), I may occasionally be in drab :(
This is not a hookup site since there is craigslist and Lovers Playground for that kind of stuff. This site caters to all, especially those who are afraid to get out and want a "safe haven", ie. private or home meetings, meetings in drab. Also if you are married or have a significant other who is having a hard time with his/her transside, it helps to have friends. Again, more of a social site over support site, friends only help friends here.
The type of meetings will be mostly public in generally low key environments, meet for coffee, happy hour, dinners, cocktails. Aimed at just breaking the ice so to say.
