My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday Susan time at Starbucks

Well it is Sunday and I slept in to 8:30 and yes, I am stiff and sore from my yard work yesterday. I didn’t start getting ready till noon. My plan for today was simple, go grocery shopping as I didn’t do that yesterday and go to Starbucks and work on my blog. I still have my blog from Wednesday nights dinner at Who Song and Larry’s and yesterday and going to the Escape. Yes, I have found I am falling behind in my blogs. I took my time getting ready as I wanted to try for a good daytime look, I used my rose-colored eye shadow and a brick red lipstick and was happy with the look. I was all ready by 2pm. Now it was off to the grocery store.

Grabbed my purse and I was on my way to Fred Meyers for my weekly shopping. I got there and went in and did my shopping for the week. Yes, this is a simple thing and not very exciting but it is an everyday type activity that I can do as Susan. Over the last 10 to 15 years Being Susan has gone from something I did in secret at home, to going out to LGBTQ friendly places, to going out to pretty much anyplace to doing everyday things as Susan. now being Susan is a part time thing for me and by that, I mean just a part of who I am but she has become a normal part of me and who I am. I did my shopping and was back home before 3 and parked in my driveway and took my groceries inside and put them away just like anyone else. I grabbed my computer and it was time to go to Starbucks.

I thought about going to the one by my house but this time of year their tables are on the sunny side of the building but the umbrellas give you some shade. I drove over and all the tables were taken so I decided to go to the one at Cascade station as they have probably 15 tables outside. I got there about 3:30 and parked out front and just like the Starbucks by my house they were really busy but I could see 2 open tables outside. I grabbed my computer and went in and they were just as busy, 5 people waiting for their drinks and 6 people in line in front of me. I finally got up to the counter and ordered my drink and went and stood in the line to get my drink. As I stood there I looked outside and all the tables were now taken and there was only on small table in the corner by the back door so I went and set my computer up on it and then went back to wait for my drink, this is the busiest I have seen this place.

I got my drink and went over and sat down and started working on my blog from Wednesday nights dinner at Who Song and Larry’s. Now this week I was busy and got behind on my blogs and probably will be that way for a week or two so be patient with me catching up. I finished my blog and caught up on some e-mails and so work. It was fun people watching and yes again it was there were more females here today. It was about 4:45 and I saw one of the tables open outside so I picked up my stuff and moved out to that table. I really like sitting outside with all the people. I started working on my blog from Saturday but didn’t quiet finish it as it was almost 6 and I still needed to get something to eat. I left and drove home and made dinner and spent the rest of the evening watching TV. Now I am looking forward to tomorrow and Monday’s night Zoom meeting with my friends.

Stay safe and be happy with who you are and thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog.

Saturday and going to the Escape

Well it is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight, now I don’t normally include my male side in my blogs but today is an exception. As I said in my last blog, I had some stuff to do today well actually it is working in my yard, something I have wanted to do for a few years and just didn’t have time. before my dad passed away, I would take my parents to Laughlin every spring and on one of the trips I had been talking about planning a palm tree in my front yard and both my parents thought it was a great idea. Well I decided to do it so today I got up before 6am before it got to hot to start my yard work, removing a 3 foot by 25-foot strip of grass on the very front of my yard by the sidewalk and planting 3 palm trees, 1 for my dad, 1 for my mom and 1 for me. Took longer than I thought and I didn’t finish till about 3pm. Now I bring this up as I kind of keep to myself with my neighbors but as I was working right by the sidewalk on the street a couple of them stopped by as I was working and talked to me and the new neighbor across the street to the right came over and introduced himself to me and we talked for a little while. Nothing was said about my dressing so still don’t know if they know but I suspect they do, but this is the most interaction I have had with my neighbors at one time. will include a picture of my project at the bottom.

Well it was 3pm when I finished and I was hot and sweaty but time to start getting ready to go out as I had posted I would be at the Escape around 5pm as Nicole was in town tonight and wanted to meat early before karaoke starts and it gets loud and a couple others said they would be early. I took a nice long shower and started getting ready. Now I was a little slower getting ready as I am a little sore as I don’t normally do work like this. I was all ready by 4:45. I grabbed my purse and was out my front door to my car in the driveway and was on my way.

I got to the Escape about 5:10 and had to park on the street about a ½ block down and walk back. I went in and Tina was already there sitting at the bar so I stood and talked to her for a bit. We went over and got one of the small tables before they got to busy, besides the chairs at these tables have backs which are way more comfortable. It wasn’t long and Nicole showed up. It was so great to see them in person, I haven’t seen Nicole in person in over a year and a half. Well Jan and Lynn also showed up early as did Michelle so we kind of pulled the next table over close to ours as these tables are really for 4 people and we now had 6. We ordered food and yes, I got the Chicken sandwich which is really good and probably healthier than a burger.

Michelle and Lynn both played the video poker machines for a little while and both won some money, 1 about $30 and the other $4 but still a win. When I play slot machines it is always the machine that wins. Renee also showed up which was nice but as we had a bigger group it was hard to talk with everyone as we were spread out a little. the zoom meetings are fun but just not the same as talking in person. Now it was pretty busy here for as early as it was and the group of ladies at the next table would cheer when ever someone new came in and after a couple times, they had the whole bar doing it, almost like in the old TV show Cheers where everyone yelled Norm when he came into the bar. It was pretty cool as I am sure it made people feel welcome when they came in.

We talked for a while and caught up, Nicole is in town for the weekend with her wife and was able to get out for a few hours tonight and will be back down on Wednesday night and hopes to make dinner so I am trying to figure something out on the east side of Portland to make it easier for her to get there. The Wednesday night dinners are taking some thought now as some of the places we went are closed, some have smaller table size and with more restaurants closed those that are open seem busier but then they may have less seating also. Any way I am trying to find a few new places but it is nice to be able to make reservations but it seems more restaurants are not doing reservations either. I really would like to get a bigger mix of places we go so we have a greater reach of interaction with people. We have talked about this in our zoom meetings and we all feel that the more interaction we can have with people the better as it lets them see we are no different then they are. I think that is why I like going to Starbucks so much.

It was a nice evening and soon it was 7:30 and karaoke started up and it got louder and it was hard to talk even with those right next to you. Tina and Nicole stuck it out for a little but bit by a little after 8 they were done. I figured I would stay till 9 and then go home as I am really tired not only from getting up so early today but the yard work I did. It is fun to listen to some of the singers well mainly the ones who sing songs I know. By 9 it was really busy in here almost like it was before the shutdowns. Well I was thinking of leaving but Patty showed up so I stayed to talk with her. yes, I can easily get distracted from leaving, I hardly ever leave when I planned to. It was almost 10 and just Jan, Lynn, Patty and I were left and I was ready to leave so I went and paid my bill and came back sat down to listen to one last song. Well as I sat there someone hugged me from behind, it turned out to be Dan. He had come out to see who all were here. Well I couldn’t leave now as I had to talk with him a little, it has been over 2 years since I have seen him. We talked for a little while but I was really feeling the long day. It was about 10:30 I just couldn’t take it and said my goodbyes and walked out to my car and

headed for home.

I got home and sat down on the couch for a minute to rest before going up to bed and the next thing I knew I woke up and it was after 1am, I had fallen asleep. I made my way upstairs and washed my makeup off and got into bed. Tomorrow is another day and yes some more Susan time.

Stay safe and be happy with who you are. Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Wednesday night zoom meeting with friends.

Well, another Wednesday night and again I get to spend some time with my friends online. I got home from work and took my time getting ready. It is so relaxing doing my makeup and transforming myself to Susan. I was all ready by 6 so I had time to get some pictures and call and talk to my mom. Now I just watched TV as I waited for our meeting to start.

It was a few minutes before 7 when I started the meeting and some ladies were already waiting. In all we had 13 ladies in 12 windows tonight. Jennifer, Nicole, Melissa, Barb, Julie, Danielle, Jeanie, Jane, Jan & Lynn, Tori, Kea and me. Now we spent a little time just talking and catching up on what is knew in our lives. it was great to see Jane again as last week was her first time and she has only been fully dressing a couple weeks. We also talked a little about our dinner a few of us had on Saturday night at Kyoto Steakhouse for Jeanie and Amy’s birthday. We also talked about our Zoom meetings and I want to change them from Wednesday to Monday so we can try and start doing our Wednesday night dinners again maybe by the end of May. I told them I am going to start doing zoom meetings on Monday’s and Wednesdays for a while to help the switch over go well. Now this also gives me another night to be Susan so even if no one else joins the Zoom meeting I will have a quiet evening at home watching TV and playing on my computer. I have always scheduled the meetings and will e-mail it out on Friday night

We talked a little more before we got to Jennifer’s question of the week. This week’s question was a good one and it was what is one thing on our feminine side that we feel we do a good job on or feel good about and 1 thing we feel we struggle with or can improve on. Now it was interesting to hear what we all thought and in this we had a wide range of answers as we all have our own things, we are worried about or want to improve on.

Now when it was my turn. Now for me one think I think I do well at is my makeup, I have spent a lot of time practicing my makeup and watching video. Now I am not saying I am perfect with it and I can always improve but I am happy with where I am. Now the one thing I really struggle with or feel I don’t do well is when I try to pose for a full body picture to show off my outfit. I just don’t feel comfortable and feel like I am stiff. I watch how others pose and have even watched videos on how to stand and hold your arms and I just still don’t loke the looks of those pictures. Every once in a while, I can get one that is okay but never one I feels is really good. Now I know we all tend to be harder on ourselves and maybe. I know I feel if I run into someone, I know they will recognize me immediately and that really is not the case. We let our own fears and insecurities get the better of us and it is hard to overcome.

We had a great time and enjoyed good conversation. It was a little before 9 when some if the girls signed off and by a little after 9 it was down to just Julie and me so we talked for a little while longer. Julie will be coming back from down south the first part of May for the summer and I am really looking forward t see her again. It will be so much fun to get together with her. It was about 9:20 when we called it a night and signed off.

Now I am looking forward to Saturday and some more Susan time.

Stay safe and be happy with yourself.

Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Saturday evening out with the girls

Saturday evening an I am going out to meet my friends at the Escape, plus tonight Nicole was in town and was going to meet us at the Escape. Now  I took my time getting ready tonight as I really wanted to enjoy the experience plus I wanted to get there early. I got to the Escape just before 6 and got out my computer to pass the time till others showed up. One of the guys at the bar told me you come here to get away from work and I assured him it was not work. We talked for a bit and he asked if I was checking out politics as that was just as bad and I again assured him I was not. So here I go getting on my soap box again. I try my best to avoid 2 things on my blog, Facebook and other social media and that is Politics and religion. Now these two topics have very strong feelings in people and I have seen friends on both sides go to extreme. So to all my friends out there, we are all different in views and beliefs and I accept all of you. This is why I keep this out of my blog and Facebook page as I do not want to put someone down because they think believe or have different views than I do. Okay we no return to our normally scheduled blog.

It wasn’t long and Nicole showed up. It was good to see her again as this is the first time this year she has made it down here because of the weather. We ordered dinner and then sat and talked and caught up on things. Cassandra also showed up and shortly after Melissa and her wife. Now we all sat and talked for a while and of course part of the conversation was about Diva Las Vegas. Elaine also showed up, she has been coming out pretty regular on Saturday nights for a while now. Kate also showed up and she was interested in Diva Las Vegas. She doesn’t think she can go for the whole thing but she is thinking of going for a few days. I think she would really have fun and enjoy herself.

Now I did play one game of pool against Cassandra and lost but it was fun. Cassandra played several games and won all of them, Bambi and Kris also showed up, They are getting out to almost every event now. They played a couple games of pool also. Shadow also showed up with 2 girls, Michele who I met at Cristines celebration of life and a new girl Sabrina. This was Sabrina’s first time going out. She has dressed at home but Came to Portland to get a transformation at Over the Rainbow and go out. It is always a fun night when we have a girl that is out for her first time. Always makes me think back to my first time and how scared and excited I was. I got a chance to talk with her a little and she was having a good time and didn’t seem that scared.

Karaoke started and of course it gets hard to talk then as it gets loud. Nicole called it a night. It was starting to get busy now as more were showing up for Karaoke so there was a good crowd here tonight and we had 12 from our group. It was a little after 11 when I left. It was a fun night out.

Thanks for reading

End of the week

It is Friday and has been a long week, lots going on at work so I was ready for the weekend and really tired. No I was deciding if I should go out tonight. I still haven’t had time to do my blog from Wednesday night dinner so I thought about just staying home and doing that. But I also needed to eat dinner and in the end I figured I would go to Sweet Home for dinner at least, and I can do my blog there. I got home from work a little after 5 so it was a rush to get ready.

I was ready by a little after 6 and on my way, I got there about 6:30 the same time as last week and again I got one of the 3 parking spots. Looks like 6:30 is a good time to get here. Chris and Roxy were already here as they get here early. I ordered dinner as the special tonight was their Pork chop Special which is one of my favorite dinners here. Then I got out my computer and did my blog from Wednesday. It really is fun to look back over my blog and see the things I have done, places I have gone and the friends I have met. Wednesday blog is my 930th blog as Susan. It is hard to believe I have gone out that many times (maybe more) as Susan. I started my blog which was very basic back in November of 2006 so I have been keeping up on it for over 10 years now. It really is my diary of Susan which I keep on line so others can share. Now it doesn’t matter who you are but I would encourage everyone to write about their life and experiences in your life. It is a great way to look back on your life.

Dinner came and it was so good as always. As I said their pork chop special, chicken breast and steak specials are my 3 favorites but all their food is good. Now there was a good crowd here for as early as it was so I knew it would be busy the later it got. Chris of course was playing pool so I took the time to catch up on some work I had to do on my computer. I am starting to have a lot of issues with my computer so I am going to have to look into getting a new one. It won’t install the latest windows update and is getting slow. Besides I really want a new one that has a backlighted key board as it is hard to work on my computer here as it is kind of dark.

Now as I said it is Friday night and Diva Las Vegas is getting close, a little over 4 weeks. As a matter of fact Cassandra and I will be in Las Vegas in 4 weeks as we will leave early (4 am) on Friday March 24 and drive straight through to Las Vegas. it takes between 14 and 15 hours for the drive. That may seem long but I really am a road trip type girl. I love this drive and have made it many times over the years. By the way there is still time to sign up for Diva Las Vegas. They will start event sign up the first full week of March and remember this is not a convention it is a vacation. There is no cost to attend the event. you just pay your way for what you want to participate in, go golfing pay for your round of golf, go for dinner pay for your dinner. we have 8 for sure going from our group so it will be a lot of fun.Now I do need to do some shopping before we go to Las Vegas, just a matter of finding the time.

As it got later it did get busier and the other main group that comes here on Friday started to show up. Robyn showed up late but she did make it which was good. She said Diane was also coming later but I am really getting tired so I am not sure I will make it late enough to see her. Just before Karaoke started Chris left so it was just Robyn and me and we talked a little. One lady came over and told me how much she liked my sweater dress and asked where I got it as she had been looking for one. I thanked her and told her I got it on line at Fashion bug but they were bought out a few years ago and no longer on line.

karaoke was going and that made it hard to talk. I stayed a little longer listening to the singing but  was really getting tired and was afraid I might fall asleep at the table. wow it was only a little after 10 and I was worried about this, I guess I am getting older. 8 years ago I didn’t even go out till 10. I stuck it out till about 10:30 before calling it a night.

Now I am looking forward to Saturday night out with my friends. Next week I am not sure if I will make it out as I have family coming to town. I know I will not be out next Friday and Saturday is not for sure and I may not even make it for Wednesday night dinner so it may be 2 weeks before I get a chance to go out again.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

Dinner at Southland Whiskey Kitchen

Wednesday is here and the dinner tonight is at Southland Whiskey Kitchen restaurant on NW 23rd in Portland. The group has come here several time although this is only my second time. They have really good food and the price good. Now I Knew Cassandra and Melissa would be there but didn’t know who else. I started getting ready early as I wanted to get there a little early as the one bad thing about here is the parking. I was on my way a little before 6. Traffic wasn’t bad ad I was there about 20 after 6. I did drive around the block a couple times before going further down 23 rd. I found a parking spot about 4 blocks down. It is amazing how easily I get out of my car now. I walked the 4 blocks and it was a little cold out but not bad.

I got there and Cassandra was already there. We had a chance to talk a little while we waited for others to show up. We talked a little about Cristine, Turns out the funeral home was able to contact her children and one had called Cassandra. We also talked a little about Diva Las Vegas which is only 4 weeks away. We are both looking forward to going again this year. We are booked at The California downtown.

Melissa showed up next and the 3 of us talked some more as we were waiting for the 3 remaining girls to show up. Melissa is planning on going to Diva Las Vegas this year with her wife. so we will have at least 8 of us there from our group. Bambi and Kris showed up and finally the last girl showed up so there was 8 of us here tonight. We talked for a little bit before ordering dinner.

Now it was pretty busy here tonight so it was also fun to people watch. Our dinners came and the food was awesome although I did eat more than I should have. One of the reasons I can’t seem to loose weight. I did skip dessert though. After dinner we talked for a little but before some of the girls left. Soon it was just Cassandra, Melissa and me left. We only stayed maybe 10 minutes longer before we all left. It was a good night out with my friends.

The Escape on a Saturday night

Saturday night and our group is going to meet the t-girls in Salem at Southside Speak Easy. Our group has several members that live down there so we have been trying to go down there and visit them also although I have not made it yet. Actually I have only been there once before back in 2008 to meet up with Alice who I have known for many years, here is a picture of us from 2009. I really want to go here again. It is funny as I really stated this blog for myself to look back on the things I have done as Susan which it is really good for, I never thought others would find it much less read it. I am really happy that others have found it and follow my time as Susan and I hope that you enjoy my blog and maybe find it helpful in some small way.

Any way I have to get up early Sunday and didn’t want to stay out to late. well the girls in Salem don’t meet till 8 and as it is an hour drive down there I would only be able to stay till 9:30 so I didn’t want to make the drive for such a short time out. I decided I would go to the Escape and have dinner and see if ant others showed up. I got there by 6 and it was not very busy but they did have one of the tables reserved. I ordered something to eat off their breakfast menu. Then I got out my computer to pass the time to see if anyone else showed up.

It wasn’t long and Elaine showed up and joined me. It was good to see her again and always nice to not be by yourself. It wasn’t long and Rachael also showed up. The three of us talked for a while which was nice. It started to get busy about 7:30 as the group that reserved the other table showed up, there must have been 20 of them maybe more. They were a group from the SCA, I had to look it up on line as I had not herd of it before. They turned out to be a really fun group.

Karaoke started a little early tonight and the other group were reallot good at singing. Jan and Lynn also showed up so there were 5 of us here tonight. It was a good night. One of the girls from the other group started talking with Jan, I think her name was Verna. She is into fashion and learning to design clothes and she wanted to make something for Jan. She talked to us for over an hour. She seemed really nice and it was fun talking with her about fashion. Wow time went by so fast tonight before I knew it, it was 11 pm. So much for my being in bed by 11. I paid my bill and said my goodbyes.

It has been a great weekend and really a good week out for Susan.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

out for a Friday night at Sweet Home

It is the end of the week and I am looking forward to a fun Friday night. It is always good when I can get together with friends and just be out as Susan. Now I did make it out twice this week already, once to a PFLAG meeting to hear Cassandra speak about our group and of course Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry. This means with going out Saturday night I will have been out 4 times this week as Susan. Now I hope over the next few weeks I will get out even more as I do need to do some shopping as I need a few things for Diva Las Vegas which is coming up fast, 5 weeks away. There is still time to register if you want to go to Diva Las Vegas. Check out their web page if you want more information and also check out the photos from past years. The years I went are 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 so you can look for me in some of the pictures. You can also read my blogs from those years here, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015. It really is a wonderful time. Now My friends and I are staying downtown at the California hotel casino this year which is owned by Boyd Gaming, we wanted to try downtown and the room rates are a lot better. We are really looking forward to it. we will be there for 8 nights.

Well back to Friday night, I got a late start getting ready so it was a little after 6 when I left home. I got to Sweet Home and luck was with me as I got 1 of the 3 parking spots in their lot, first time I haven’t had to park on the street in a long time. Robyn, Chris and Roxy were already there as they are the early crowd. I joined them and ordered dinner and of course got my computer out and took care of some thing I had to do. I may have to get a new computer as mine won’t do the update to Windows 10, for the last several weeks it downloads it but wont install it. I have to take the battery out a couple times each day to get it to reinstall the previous version but than this computer is over 5 years old.

We talked and of course I played on my computer, it was a typical Friday night out with my friends. The bar was a little busy for as early as it was which is always good and there were some new faces in the crowd. Chris and Robyn played pool as always, they are both pretty good.  Robyn played some video lottery  but didn’t do well this week.

It was about 9 and the other group that comes for Karaoke started to show up, Heather was out tonight and it is always good to see her. It was a good crowd here tonight. Roxy was the first of our group to leave as she works on Saturday. and soon Chris also left about 9:30.

Two guys came over and sat at our table for a while, I think there names were David and Michael but I am horrible at remembering names. They talked more with Robyn them me as they had all been in the military so they had a lot in common. It was a good night.

It was a little after 10 when Robyn and I called it a night. It was a great start to the weekend.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry

Wednesday is here and I am going out to dinner with my friends, we are going to Who Song & Larry. We have gone here several times and it is always a fun night with good food. I was looking forward to dinner. Now I started getting ready taking my time and I had my Red and Black dress all set out to wear. I started doing my make up and it turned out really well. Now it was time to get dressed and of course I changed my mind and went with my black and gold dress instead.

I got to Who Song and Larry by 6:20 so I was early as we were not meeting till 7. Well early or not I decided to go inside and wait for others to show up. now as I entered there was a group of about 8 young ladies guessing early 20’s there waiting for a table and they were all in dresses and heels. I really love it when I see other girls all dressed up. As I walked by them I saw Jan and Lynn sitting in the bar so I went and joined them. Now Cassandra called me about 6:35 as she was caught in traffic. I checked with the host and turns out they were really busy with a couple big parties. I told her we had 8 tonight coming and she told me it would be about an hour. I told her that was fine as our girls were caught in traffic.

I went back and joined Jan & Lynn in the bar. The group of girls came up to get drinks while they waited for there table. Now as I said they were all dressed really nice but the one had pink hair and it really looked cute on her so I just had to tell her how cute her hair was, she thanked me and we chatted for just a moment. It was just about 7 when Cassandra showed up. Now the 4 of us talked in the bar as we waited, both for the rest of our group to show up and also our table. Bambi and Kris showed up so we were up to 6 now. The lady came over and told us they had a group just leaving and would clean the table and get it set up for us as soon as they could and thanked us for being so nice about the wait. I really didn’t think anything about the wait as we were having a good time talking. Our table was finally ready and we were shown to it. It was a little before 8, wow it didn’t seem like were waited that long.

Joan showed up right after we sat down and it wasn’t long and Kim showed up. Kim is our favorite waitress from Harvey’s and have come out with us before to Who Song and Larry’s. It was good to see her here in a social setting as at Susan at Who Song & LarryHarvey’s she is working but tonight we can talk more. It was a really fun night with good food and conversation. Now as I said we have come here several times before and we always get the same waiter but tonight he was working a big party in the back room so we got another waitress named Leah and she was really nice and treated us well.

Now I really did eat to much as they have the best chips and salsa as they make them fresh here so the chips are warm when they bring them to the table. I could make a meal out of them. For dinner I had the all you can eat Enchilada’s, really good.

After dinner we sat and talked for so more. The night went by so fast, it was hard to believe. soon it was after 10. As we were getting ready to go I took the opportunity to get a couple quick selfie’s. As we were leaving Leah our waitress wished us a good evening and called me by my name which was nice.

Susan at Who Song & LarryIt was 10:20 when we left. it was a fun night out with good friends. I stayed out a lot later then I planned but it was worth it although in the morning I may not feel the same way.

Now my little advice to all, be happy with yourself and who you are. If you cant’s find joy and happiness in yourself other people will not change that. Also find supportive friends that you can get together with, talk and go places. The more you go out the easier it becomes and it will open a whole new world to you.

Thanks for reading.

Tuesday night out for a meeting

It was a quick night out, Cassandra was invited to speak at the monthly PFLAG meeting so several of us from the group went to support her. It is a national support group for the LGBT community with chapters in every state, there are actually several of them across Oregon.

I got there about 6:30 and they were already setting up. It wasn’t long and Cassandra and Peggy showed up. Cassandra was going to talk about our group the Rose City T-Girls and of course the P-Club issue we had several years back. Now we did have 7 of us from our group here tonight. Now being a support group I can’t talk about what happened here but is was an interesting evening. It is really to help the family and friends of LGBT people. The meeting went 7 to 9.

It was a well run meeting and very accepting of all. if you do have a family member or friend that is gay, lesbian, or transgender and need help or information this support group is a good place to get help.
