Cross-dresser is thankful wife accepts him as woman

in SINGAPORE, 27/09/2013

Bridget (not her real name), 36, is opting to remain physically male, so she can remain married to someone she considers the love of her life. The landscaper, 36, says: "It's a compromise. If it weren't for my family, I probably would have gone for a sex change operation. "For now, I'm content to be as true to myself without surgery."

Though still a married man with kids, Bridget requests that we call her "she" and use a female name.

When The New Paper on Sunday met her and her wife, Julia (not her real name), in person at a mall last Friday, Bridget was dressed in a woman's top, scarf, slacks, shoes and carrying a small black handbag. Julia, an engineer, was dressed more sedately in a denim skirt and a black short-sleeved top.

Bridget reveals that she's been crossdressing since the age of 10. As a child, she wore her mother's chiffon skirts when nobody was looking, and wore knee-high stockings under her uniform. Over the years, she has worn dresses, frilly skirts, leggings, dresses, heels and nail polish.
