Recently I received this comment on "passing" from the Cyrtsih@yahoo.com email from Tami:
"It seems that many have different views on the importance of passing, and I won't argue that. To each their own. I put high value on it however. Like many, my initial experiences out in public were guarded. My wig was ok, my makeup just ok, outfit not quite right. Then I matured, the facial hair was 95% removed, and I grew my hair out. Already small at 5'9" and 145 lbs at my heaviest. My dermatologist helped with a little botox and fillers to feminize my facial cues. (So supportive too!) I took some voice lessons at U of A in Tucson . It all just came together for me.
