'Kenia' - Coming to London 'En Femme'




'Kenia T-Girl' (From Belgium)

I must say that I have read The Tranny Guide over and over again. I find it is full of useful information and it helped me to be a better Tranny over the years.

I was a T-girl who lived only between 4 walls and wanted to break out. Not to hide from society but to show society that we exist.

But .... I was afraid.

I always felt that we were not normal and that we should hide.

But reading your books and searching the internet convinced me Iwas wrong, but I was still afraid.

Coming outside? Crazy?

The first step I took was to join the www.planetgender.com project where T-girls and T-men show themselves as human beings, showing people the we are not strange or freaks, but live like everybody else, have famillies and all the rest.

By doing that my face was on the internet, some newspapers and magzines, I was interviewed for some radio and television together with the founder of Planet Gender, (Estelle Segers).

Now an exhibition is held in Maastricht, it lasts for one month.

These were the first times that I left my house as the girl 'Kenia'. It felt great but I did not feeling 100% safe.

Then last month I decided that I wanted to go futher with myself. I planned to go to another country and take no mens clothes at all with me. So I had no excuses for not being Kenia. Again I searched The Tranny Guide for where to go. And yes that foreign country became the UK, to the city of London for 1 weekend.

I was VERY nervous.
What would people say?
What happens at the bordercheck?
What will they say in the hotel?
Will I be in some kind of trouble?

I took the train here in Ghent to Brussels South where I, (actually it was we because my girlfriend joined me), had to take the Eurostar to London. We where lining up for ticket and bordercheck, I was scared, I wanted to turn back and change home into mens clothing, but we did go on.

Surpirse surprise, we passed first the Belgian Check and then the English check,

NOBODY looked strange, NOBODY asked questions, EVERYBODY said Madame

even though they could clearly see on my passport that I was really a man. Of course I was in a dress, with make up and high heels. You should have seen me when I finally sat down on the Eurostar train,

I felt better than I ever did in my whole life!!

Although I was thinking, ok, but still there is London, what will it be like over there. But it was the same over there as well, nothing at borderpatrol, on the tube there were many police, but I had no trouble.

I was beginning to think Why did I wait all my life??? Stupid me being afraid!

We were in the London Bridge hotel, which had very friendly & helpful people, the concierge helped us girls to bring our luggage to the rooms. We had a nice meal in their restaurant.

Then on Saturday I had planned to go shopping, (of course). So after breakfast in the hotel we went straight to Harrods, I was curious, (no longer afraid). I could go where ever I wanted and wasn't followed by any security guards etc.

So from that very moment I was convinced that we T-girls don't have to hide and MUST come out to make us all acceptable. I agree of course we must behave like real women.

On Saturday evening we did a dinner cruise on the Thames with bateuxlondon, leaving the Embankment Pier. We had to be in Evening Dress, so we did. The people there were also very friendly. Everywhere I went in London, I was always treated like a lady.

Finally on the way back to Belgium I was no longer afraid of borderpolice or other things. I learned that being afraid for being a T-girl outside was very stupid.

So girls, show the world who you are. You're all special and there is only one life, so don't spoil it!
