So Im writing to you to ask you if you have any advice on how to tell my family that i want to crossdress. I am scared of what they might think as when i told my mum she wasnt encouraging at all in fact the opposite. I would really like some tips. Cross dressing means wearing clothes and accessories which are often associated with the opposite gender.
You have the right to choose what you wear and this should always be respected by other people. You need to prepare yourself for the people who might not understand or might not want you to look or dress in a way that they see as unusual or different.
The psychology of cross-dressing
How you want to dress might not be what your friends or family expect and sometimes it can take time for them to understand. Not everyone will accept what you choose and some people might say things that are hurtful or unkind. Let them know that you want to experiment with or try out wearing new things, so that you can do it in a safe place at first, like at home. Telling somebody you want to cross dress is different from coming out about your sexuality, but our tips on coming out might give you some ideas on how to tell people.
Remember, being happy with yourself and choosing clothes that feel right for you can help you to build your confidence and self-esteem in the long run. I hope this advice has helped. You can talk to a counsellor at Childline for more support. You can talk privately to a counsellor online or call for free. You can ask me about anything you want, there's nothing too big or small. I read every single letter but I can only answer a few crossdressing week.
