I'll Be at the SCC This Fall!

This is me dancing:


I am so happy to be able to go to the 18th Annual Southern Comfort Conference in Atlanta Georgia this fall. It's from September 30 through October 5, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia. It's a five day symposium about all things transgendered.

Last year they had four sessions a day for three days with about nine different topics per session to choose from. There will be topics on how to look and sound more feminine. These will include classes like; tips and tricks with makeup, voice coaching, and how dress for your body type. They will also have classes that are practical, such as how to protect yourself, political activism, and how to bring transgender awareness to your place of business. I'm sure they will have vendor booths of all kinds of products and services. They may even have a costume contest!

They will also be bringing back the job fair this year. So this will be the 2nd Annual Transgender Career Expo 2008 and will be held on Friday, October 3rd.

There will be excursions and dinners that will be on an off-site from the hotel. And I'm sure I will meet a lot of my friends and readers for the first time in person!

Meeting my fellow crossdressers, that I have met on the Internet, is what I'm looking forward to the most. They have been the kindest and most supportive people I have ever met. Yes, even more so than my shrink! I'm really looking forward to sharing time with them and also meeting new friends.

And even though my wife does not read my blog nor sees me dressed, she is tolerant of my crossdressing and has allowed me to go on this excursion. So I thank you dear, from the bottom of my heart.

So, all the things I have been talking about on this blog, about improving myself and being a "Gender Illusionist" will have a target of sorts. I'm using this event as inspiration to finish these things that I have started.

Love, Tracy

Hi. Is the Japanese animated cartoon good?
Your site is interesting for me
I want to often visit your site from now on.
If you are interested in Anime, please link to my site.
My site has information about Japanese culture
(For example, Japanese manga, animation, games, Japanese foods).
Would you introduce my site in your site if you like it?

Thank you, I grew up watching "Kimba the White Lion" and Astroboy. I've watched Sailor Moon (I have to get that costume!) and love the Naruto, especially his "Sexy Jitsu"! I've added your site to my links.

Tracy, it's so cool that you'll be going to SCC. I'm jealous. I'm also a 54 year old married crossdresser working in IT. Unfortunately, my wife doesn't like my crossdressing and can't understand why I would want to go to an event like SCC. I'm hoping we'll work this out sometime, but I'm afraid I'll only be eligible for the Senior SCC by that time.

All the best.

Linda, my wife, even though she knew early on in our dating that I was a cross-dresser, is still pensive about my dressing. You may want to look in buying some books on-line like, "My Husband Betty" or "My Husband Wears My Clothes". It will help you see your wife's point of view and may allow you to help her understand. My wife allowing me to go is a new development, so change is possible!

Love, Tracy

I wish i will have the chance to say hi in person during the conference.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and pictures (you're elegant and attractive) with us.
