    Default have you ever met a trans person in a non-escort environment?

    i know many are still afraid, rightly, not to be out. but then i don't think ever have, even though i may have unknowingly.

    Unfortunately, there just aren't that many trans women out there. But I have been fortunate enough to meet some. One of them was even a client of mine who eventually turned into my girlfriend.

    It could just be me. But it seems like in the last 10 years, the trans community has been getting a lot bigger. There are even trans children now. Heck, if there were trans children when I was in school, I might have dated one of them. But there weren't any back then. At least not in the schools I went to. But there seem to be some now. Not a lot, but some. Who knows what will happen in the next hundred years or so. Too bad all of us will be gone by that time.

    Yes - on a strictly professional job/employment environment.

    I saw Kimberly Devine in a shoe store in Van Nuys, CA in 1987.
    I was star struck and I was actually shaking. She was quite beautiful. I just said, "Hi" and she smiled back.

    Plenty of times. Although I dress myself, I went out for the day with a trans friend several years ago, largely to see how she was treated. (I was deciding how "out" to be myself). We went to a restaurant, a coffee house and some shops.

    The result? No funny remarks. No double-takes. Was she unclockable? No. Did people care? No one seemed to.

    When I eventually went out as Gilly for the first time, I too got no comments or funny looks. Do I think I was clocked? Almost certainly. Did it matter. No ...

    In that respect, I think society, certainly here in the UK, has come quite a long way.
