Why high heels

I am what I am The first question is always “Why?” Why do you want to wear women’s clothes and shoes? Are you gay? Are you a transvestite or do you like to dress as a woman for fun?

I have a dream

I dream of a place where everyone has the same opportunities; where no human being is perceived as ‘wrong’ because of their gender, sexual orientation, colour, religion, culture, tastes or passions.

Not being ourselves hurts and makes us sick

Some diseases kill. Some diseases are chronic and weaken us, preventing us from living our lives to the full. If we’re lucky, we can get help and treatment. For those of us lucky enough to live where there is no famine, drought or war, with the chance to build a good life for ourselves, there is a disease no one talks much about. A disease that few know we have, a disease that cannot be…
