Well it's here, another TDoV, and it's time to ask what does it mean to you?
Obviously, you don't have to color your hair violet and hit the world head on, you can take a quieter route.
I will be interested today to see what the rest of the participants wear to the Cincinnati event which is rumored to be attracting around two hundred. I wonder if some of, or most of the table participants in my group will be rocking their usual 4 or 5" heels. Some with seamed stockings. I will definitely be doing my share with my hair! With the amount of hair I have, even it was the usual red color it's been, it attracts attention anyhow. Most certainly, a woman my age is not supposed to have this much hair. By now, I am sure you have all surmised, I don't care. I can tie it back to blend in too.
You can do whatever you decide this year and it will be fine! At the least, if you are firmly in the closet think about voting out the bigots who are trying to take our transgender rights away! Who knows, someday, you may need those rights.
Plus, even if you are "just" meeting a new person or two when you do go out, it's up to you to educate the public many times.
Finally, if you feel the need to rock those heels and seamed stockings...do it with Pride!
