On Saturday, February 12th, the Crossdressers Unite Group met. Snacks were there, and talk was lively. Among topics in discussion were the passage of Bill C-389 through Parliament, and how it just needs Senate approval to be law. This bill, once law, would give protection for gender identity and gender expression in Canada. Let’s hope it passes!
Do not forget, you do not need to come dressed or even dress at the group. It is a non-judgemental group, and there to help others. If you have a spouse/significant other you would like to bring to the group that is permitted as well.
On a very cold Sunday night the monthly Crossdressers Unite group met. Perhaps because of the cold attendance was sparse this time, and the day will be also changed to a Saturday soon.
Despite the low attendance, we talked about things both related to transgender and other topics as well. One topic that was touched on was acceptance. If we wish to have acceptance and tolerance of us, we must also show acceptance and tolerance to others as well, a topic sparked by some controversial statements made by some members of an Ottawa TG group which one of us was a member but has withdrawn over the comments.
Remember – you do not have to be “out of the closet” to attend the groups, nor do you have to dress. You can come as you wish!
Until next time!
The Crossdressers Unite group was held on Sunday, November 14 and it was well attended. Besides regular faces there were some new ones as well.
Among the attendees was a Concordia student doing a report, to get a better understanding of what it means to be a crossdresser, transsexual, etc. and was very much welcomed. (Of course no names etc would be used).
The topics of the night varied, from make up, clothing, corsets, and of course what it is like to be CD/TV or TS. The conversation was lively and interesting, with many different angles. Before we knew it, it was time to wrap up for the evening! The time flew!
I would like to take a moment to mention some things about the Crossdressers Unite group. First, you do not have to dress to come. You can choose to dress there, or not dress at all. There is no judging of you. Second, even if you have beend dressing for years, this group is still very much for you as well, because the newer members could really benefit from your experience. Third, you don not have to be “out”, even if you are a “closet CD”, you are most welcome to attend. As well, anyone who has a significant other that they would like to bring along who may need some help understanding your dressing, please do feel free.
Until next month!
