Ladies Who Lunch

Sometimes it is hard to believe how much life has changed in three years. In February 2015, when Alice and I met for lunch, I was in male mode, but she told me, and I felt, that I was all woman. That was so much fun; my first taste of ladies who lunch. 

Meeting someone who could understand, or better still, share the experience of being transexual was so important to me when I was pre-transition. Since that first time, there have been dozens of lunches and dinners with friends (and one very, very special friend, of course). Not all of them know my history, or want to. Some are very dear, more like family, to K and I.

On Friday, for our second time, Joanna Santos and I broke bread and talked about anything that came to mind. Yes, we discussed what it has meant to us to be trans, and what we have done about it so far. Most of all, we had fun being together. 

Only time can tell whether two lunches together will evolve into the sort of friendship that K and I have with Alice, Cassidy, or Coline. As the snap below tells you, it certainly was fun. We are planning number three.
