Please give a warm Sparkles welcome to our friend Debbie. Let’s cut to the chase. Debbie wasn't always known as Debbie, and was born into this world as Colin.Yep we said it, a boy’s name and now this individual is known by a girl’s name.
Debbie wouldn't have it any other way. It has been a road that has had many hurdles and blocked paths along the way, but she wouldn't have changed a thing as the person she is now, is the person that she always felt she should be.
That’s enough talking from us, this is Debbie’s' story, let her tell it exactly how it is.
"I have one word for you- 'Support'. Anyone who is considering or going through any transition in life, whatever it maybe, you need support. Support makes all the difference and without it, you really would have a difficult time.
I am not going to go in-depth about my whole experience and how and why I become the person I am today; I am going to give you the ‘in a nutshell version’. From a young age I knew I wasn't feeling the way my body looked, and I felt different to all the other boys and my emotions felt different too. It wasn't all physical. I was lucky that my mum understood and was my main form of support until I came across more support in my local area. Now there is a lot more to it and I could write you a whole novel on the whole Transgender ‘label’, but I wanted to show you a fun side to the Trans Scene and what is going on in London in regards to Trans/sexual/gender.
London is host to some great T Girl club nights, and I have never felt so great and comfortable in one place. It’s always best to keep up with these club nights as you get to meet a great network of friends and my favourite word “Support” comes into play again. I have had the greatest Support ever from my TGirls.
Look how the world has changed and now we even have magazines and fashion and wardrobes to meet our new worlds.
A typical girl’s night out for me is, well a typical girl’s night out! I start off at my friend’s house, we usually drink a bottle of Prosecco whilst we are chatting about where we are going and about our week. We then have a good old bitch about our bosses at work!
Now on our nights out we actually get dressed at the venue, a lot of T girl themed nights have dressing/changing rooms and space/lockers to leave bags. Now this is for some people that prefer to arrive in their civilian clothing and then spice up their look. Each to their own and there is no wrong or right way of doing things.
So an Uber cab is ordered and we make our way to a top London venue. I like getting all dolled up with my fellow clubbers, great place in the dressing room to exchange makeup tutorials and tips. I tend to watch numerous YouTube videos and have even joined Pinterest for even more tips and looks. I am particularly favourable to ‘Benefit’ makeup at the moment as their packaging has instructions in them, (I am saying all this with sheer happiness).
I hope that you, yes you reading this, will come along to a Tgirl night and see all the fun we are having. Xx Ciao Darlings xx"
