RuPaul's Drag Race Battle of the Seasons at the Troc 2014

This week, on January 16th, Paula & I went to the Trocadero in Philadelphia where Drag Race Contestants from several seasons were to perform. The night was hosted by Michelle Visage and starred Manila LuzonPandora Boxx & Sharon Needles  Ivy Winters, Alaska Thunderfuck, Mimi Imfurst & Phi Phi O'Hara with special guest Jiggly Caliente. 

I missed out on getting VIP tickets this time (those tickets sell out fast) but I at least had tickets for the show. When I go to a drag show I want to look like I at least Tried with my make-up (ok, i couldn't remember where I last had my foundation so that wasn't worn). I think I did well. I looked quite ...noticeable. It was a standing room type of establishment on the floor. We decided to stand a lil bit off from the stage to a slightly higher area where I could see what was going on well. The only con was that I wasn't allowed to bring my dslr camera and had to use a Canon Power Shot. Everything looked further away than what it really was. Ah well, what could you do?

The Show started with Michelle singing a version of 'Science Fiction Double Feature' from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Then went on to performances. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the performances. There were video clips interspersed in the show, before & during performances. Lots of live singing as well as a good deal of lip singing. Carmen Carrera was supposed to be there but couldn't so Jiggly Caliente stood in, which was cool. Ivy Winters did a few performances on stilts as well as juggling knives & eating fire. Pandora Boxx did an awesome comedy routine. Manila did a great...everything! I Love Manila's style & all over zaniness. I recommend anyone who can to see the show. They are performing in a few more cities together. 

While I was at the show I saw someone that I thought i'd met before, turns out it wasn't. But Long story short, I made a new friend. A local CD named Trixie whom i've been chatting with in the days since. Seems like a pretty cool person. You never know who you'll meet when you go to shows. I also saw one of my Karaoke friends at the show.

After the show there was a free after party at club Voyeur (for the people who went to the show) where a lot of the Queens from the show were going to. I went over there and they had their weekly drag show still happening. So I saw a few of philly's local drag queens. Some I'd seen before Like Satine Harlow & Lady Poison, as well as some I'd never seen before. There were maybe 6 performances left that I was able to see. All were enjoyable. During the ending of the show a few of the queens who had been at the Troc were in attendance. I saw (ok ...kinda chased down) Manila and told him how Awesome I thought he was...wish i'd had my camera out...whateva. Anywho, I went home around 2am happy that i'd had a chance to go and see some awesome performances!

The following is a link to the rest of the performances:

Interview with a Straight Crossdresser #4

This week we have an interview that I started 6 months ago and through a series of events going on in my life, I.... didn't finish. Now, thanks to their reminder, It has been finished.

This week we interview 18 year old Victoria from Whittier, California.
*Victoria in the white satin top.
Pebbles: About when did you become interested in or start crossdressing?

Victoria: I started around the age of 10 with my moms bras and slips, but then stopped once I got into middle school. After that I didn’t really start doing it again until 2011, my junior year of high school and that's when I started buying my own clothes and creating 'Victoria'.

Pebbles: Where did you go to buy your first items of clothing?

Victoria: eBay, the first item I ever bought was a white satin top. In fact it’s the one I'm wearing in my profile pic*

Pebbles: Very cool!

Pebbles: Have you ever been 'caught' crossdressing? If so, by who? What was the outcome?

Victoria: I have been caught with the items (clothes, wigs and such) in my room by my mom and she's confused by it but she never really confronts me about it. But caught fully crossdressed? No not yet thank goodness

Pebbles: I hear ya!

Pebbles: Does any of your family know you 'dress'?

Victoria: Yes, my cousins Janelle, Marissa and Jessie, whom I'm close with know about it and are very supportive. Janelle and I are especially close and we often exchange christmas gifts. I just came out to her a few months before and she got me an e.l.f makeup kit!

Pebbles: AWESOME!!! I love the family involvement!

Pebbles: Have you ever gone out crossdressed in public?

Victoria: Yes, yes many times. Since going to college I have gone out in public on campus, to the nearby business and around my neighborhood, with some special memories on a few occasions.

Pebbles: Care to share a memory?

Victoria: Oh, there's so many. So I'll share a small sample a few. Going out crossed for the first time outside of campus to the real world; Going to 7/11 and 'Stater Bros' all due to my professor. Halloween: Going to a salon, getting my wig done and going to class startling my classmates who couldn't believe it was me. 
Going to get a pedicure with a friend of mine and being treated like two princesses. 
And sneaking an outfit into a family christmas party and showing my cousins ‘Victoria’. So many precious memories in only 4 months of going out dressed in public!

Pebbles: WOW!!! Those are some Great moments! Thank you for sharing.  

Pebbles: Did anyone teach you how to apply makeup? Do you have someone do it for you? Are you learning/ have you learned through youtube vids?

Victoria: Nope, self taught. But for me its easy since I really just do eye shadow, foundation and lipstick when go out. I really don't do elaborate makeup like other crossdressers. Only when my cousin Janelle gave me the e.l.f makeup did someone else do my makeup for me.

Pebbles: That's cool. You don't need to go all out make-up crazy. In fact, for the most part, less is more. 

Pebbles:Do/Have you worn fake nails or nail polish?

Victoria: I haven't worn fake nails yet, but I have worn nail polish. I get my nails painted everytime I go for a pedicure.

Pebbles: Awesome!

Pebbles: Are you 'Passing' or is it your goal to be passing? If so would you go out in public crossdressed regularly?

Victoria: I always want to pass because it makes me feel good and empowered. I honestly think I could do a little more to pass better, but I think I pass at a good enough level. Although even if I didn't I would still go out because I love going on adventures.

Pebbles: That’s cool.

Pebbles: Do you tuck & Shave when you crossdress?

Victoria: I shave my face and neck every time before I go out. So much so I actually got an electric razor for christmas. I do tuck but very lazily and not super convincingly.

Pebbles: What makes you want to crossdress? How does it make you feel?

Victoria: Feeling pretty and alive makes me want to crossdress. I love the feeling of lipstick and gloss on my lips, how beautiful I look when I put my wig on and inspecting myself in the mirror. I feel elated and happy when I crossdress, just the feeling of satin and sandals give me a feeling of calm and contentment that nothing else can make me feel.

Pebbles: Ideally what percentage of your time would you prefer to be 'dressed'? Like...if it was a month. 50% dressed, more/less?

Victoria: Haha, that's a good question. I mean I LOVE dressing up and I would be Victoria 100% of the time if I could. But at the same time I like being a guy and not having to act prim and proper. I kind of compare to an experience had at my high school's football games. I would love looking at the cheerleaders because they were so attractive and beautiful, but at the same time I would long to be one of them cheering on the sideline in uniform and makeup waving my pom-poms around in white shoes. So even though Victoria would love to be out all the time, she can get nudged aside pretty quickly.

Pebbles: lol! So, more like 50/50-ish or more like, 'when the mood sets me'?

Victoria: 50/50 I suppose, lol. A long analogy to get to a simple answer, haha

Pebbles: lol, its a good one though

Pebbles: Are you currently dating anyone? If so, does she know?

Victoria: No,  I'm currently single.

Pebbles: Have you had one since you started crossdressing?

Victoria: Thank you and no I haven't dated yet since becoming Victoria.

Pebbles: Well, I'm sure that will change.

Pebbles: Is there anything else you would like the public to know about you? Or do you have an interesting story to share?

Pebbles: By the way, looking at your pictures, You are ADORABLE!!!

Victoria: Thank you so much. Yes, I would just like to thank all of the people who had helped me over the past few months. My English/Speech professor Ms. Maya Staylor actually help me go out in public for the first time (outside campus) and was always welcoming when I came visit as Victoria, I owe her a lot for encouraging me to become Victoria and I enjoy every moment of it. I would also like to thank Lihn, the stylist who does my wigs, she is so welcoming and sweet everytime I go and makes me look so beautiful, I encourage any crossdresser in the Walnut area (in California) to visit her at Newen's Beauty Salon (909)910-623 Tues, Thurs. And finally I'd like to my friends and family for being so encouraging of Victoria and letting me gush over my adventures as her.

Pebbles: AWESOME!!! I'm so glad you have such a GREAT support system! Thank You for interviewing with me!

So ladies, Victoria is also single and looking. If you’re in the Whittier Area of California and are interested in conversing with Victoria, you can send an email to with your name age and reply email (a picture wouldn’t hurt as well, I mean, you see Victoria right here) and I will pass the info to Victoria.

Until next time, Have fun & stay safe!
Victoria's First time out!

Love Always,

First 'Interview with a Straight Crossdresser' for 2014

New Year, New interview! This interview is with Sienna, a 19 year old crossdresser from Las Vegas, Nevada.


Pebbles: Ok, Interview time!!!!

Sienna: LOL. Okay I'm ready.

Pebbles: So, how would you like to be addressed?

Sienna: We can use my girl name I guess. It's Sienna.

Pebbles: Ok. About when did you become interested in or start crossdressing?

Sienna: I always had a secret love of fashion but I didn't really think about crossdressing until I was about 15 or 16.

Pebbles: Have you ever been 'caught', if so, by whom? What was the outcome?

Sienna: Surprisingly I've never been caught. I think it's because I've only been doing this for about a year and a half and I'm pretty open about it already so a good chunk of people know.

Pebbles: Awesome. I've noticed it’s (seems) much easier for the younger generation to do it with lil trouble maybe people around 23-ish and younger are way more relaxed about it.
Does your family know you 'dress' ?

Sienna: My brother and two sisters know about it but my mom and dad currently don't.

Pebbles: Ah, cool. How do they feel about it?

Sienna: My siblings are extremely supportive. I've actually borrowed clothes from my sisters before.

Pebbles: When/how did they find out about it?

Sienna: They just found out in early October after a year of hiding it from them. I pretty much put a post on Facebook about it that only they could see. I figured that was the easiest way to do it.

Pebbles: Pretty smart!
Have you ever gone out crossdressed in public? If so, where to?

Sienna: The first time I ever crossdressed was at school. For spirit week we had Gender Bender Day and I was interested in crossdressing already, so I took that opportunity and dressed up.

Pebbles: Cool

Sienna: I've also been out on Halloween dressed up a couple of times.

Pebbles: Did anyone teach you how to apply makeup? Do you apply your own?

Sienna: My friend is currently teaching me how to do it. Right now I don't do my own makeup and go out because I'm absolutely horrible at it, yet somehow I'm decent at face painting.

Pebbles: Similar skills yes, but totally different results usually.
Do/Have you worn fake nails or do you paint your nails?

Sienna: I have not. Since I've started crossdressing I haven't done anything to my nails, not even paint them.

Pebbles: Ah, ok. Are you 'Passing' or is it your goal to be passing? If so would you go out in public crossdressed regularly?

Sienna: Every time I do go out dressed up people think I'm a girl so I guess I'm passing even though I don't think I am. I guess you could say it is a goal though because I want to look as pretty as possible. And yes I would go out regularly. I plan on going out more often.

Pebbles: What makes you want to crossdress? How does it make you feel?

Sienna: Ever since I was little I pretty much straddled the line for the gender norm. I'd play with my sisters and see them using barbies and then I'd go play with my brother and his wrestling action figures. So in a way there was always two sides to me. Crossdressing gives me a way to truly express that other side as well as indulge in my love of heels lol.

Pebbles: Sounds good! Do you tuck &/or Shave when you crossdress? Being that you're pretty young I figure if you shave, it’s not much, eh?

Sienna: Not yet I don't. For the most part when I've dressed up I've worn things that cover that area so tucking isn't really necessary. I haven't shaved either since a lot of the time I'm wearing leggings or something that covers my hair. Only thing that needs shaving is my beard.

Pebbles: Ideally what percentage of your time would you prefer to be 'dressed', 50% of the time more or less?

Sienna: Less than 50%. I'm happy just doing it maybe 2-3 times a month. Maybe a bit more if I'm really feeling like it. I would never want to spend a whole entire week dressing up though.

Pebbles: I hear ya! I girlified myself for a was torture...and I Am a girl. I did a weeks’ worth of posts about it...weird eh?

Sienna: LOL, that sounds like torture. Seems like most girls hate getting dolled up. They just like the end result, haha.

Pebbles: Yeah. Do you have a girlfriend, if so, does she know?

Sienna: Nope. For now I'm single.

Pebbles: Have you had one since you started crossdressing? If so did she know about it?

Sienna: Nothing serious. I've had a couple instances where I almost was in a relationship with some girls and they knew about the crossdressing and were okay with it but they weren't really official.

Pebbles: Ah, I hear ya.
Is there a female celebrity that inspires your look?

Sienna: I try to do my own thing when it comes to my look but I definitely love Kerry Washington's style. She might have a little bit of influence on me.

Pebbles: Cool. Do you have a story you would like to share with the reading audience?

Sienna: Well there's Gender Bender Day in high school. All the girls jumped at the chance to dress as boys but only two boys dressed up as girls and I was one of the two. So I get to class all dressed up, purse on one arm, makeup did and the teacher tells us there's an all boys assembly today. So I end up having to go to the all boys assembly dressed as a girl. The whole senior class died laughing at me. I think student council planned for that to happen. LOL.

Pebbles: LOL, yeah probably.

Pebbles: Is there anything you'd like to say to other young people interested in crossdressing or anything to say to parents of crossdressing kids?

Sienna: For young people who are interested I'd say, “Stop caring about what others think and just do your thing. Your real friends and family will stick by you no matter what you do.” “For parents I'd say just be open minded and accepting. They're still your baby. The only thing that is probably gonna change is the clothes they wear.”

Pebbles: Great Advice!
Thank you Sienna for having the time to be interviewed for my little blog in my tiny section of the internet

Sienna: LOL. No problem. Thank you for interviewing me. I don't get to voice how I feel about crossdressing often.
Also, I think what you're doing is a great thing. It may not be the biggest thing around but it still helps.

Pebbles: Awesome. My one major goal in life is to help people be happy

Sienna: Well I think you're doing a great job so far.

Pebbles: Thank you. I do try cause I want to help more people either with self acceptance, accepting their kids or accepting their significant other.

Sienna: That's good. I've actually considered starting a youtube channel in order to give other young straight crossdressers someone to relate to as well as promote acceptance too.

Pebbles: I think that’s Great!
Is there anything you'd like to add before we finish up here?

Sienna: I When I first started crossdressing I was looking for a straight crossdresser who I can relate to since there didn't seem to be many of them voicing their opinions. However this page ( helped since it let me know there are a lot of people out there like me as well as women who would date them. That helped me not be ashamed of crossdressing and instead accept it.

Pebbles: I’m glad I was able to help you out there. Thank you again for taking the time out to share your story with us.

So ladies, Sienna is single and looking. If you’re in the Vegas area and are interested in conversing with Sienna, you can send an email to with your name age and reply email (a picture wouldn’t hurt as well, I mean, you see Sienna right here) and I will pass the info to Sienna.

Until next time, Have fun & stay safe!

Love Always,

New Year 2014 Resolutions

Happy 2014! My resolution is that I will post every week! I did this resolution the year before last and it worked quite well for me. I didn't do it last year and I was sans many posts. This year I resolve to do much better than last. I have been working on 2 posts that are yet unfinished.

Within the next few weeks (date yet undetermined) Huff Post Live will do another spot on Straight Crossdressers. There is a call for couples. Are you in love with a crossdresser? You can be a Genetic Female that dresses as Male dating or married to a Genetic Male or you can be a Genetic Male who dresses Female who is dating or married to a Genetic Female. If you are interested in participating Please email me at:
You do Not have to reveal your face. You can have your face blurred or even just have a photograph up while they interview you. I will be participating as well. They plan on doing an on going series about straight crossdressers so even if you miss the deadline (to be added when determined) you could still participate in an upcoming segment.
We really need your support if we are going to help change the perceptions of crossdressers in society.

What are your resolutions for the new year? Share with us here or share with us on facebook.
