Dear Daddy: I’m a 48-year-old straight man, I’ve been single for three years and I spend all weekend dressed as a woman.
I go to the whole hog. In my flat I have a closet full of wigs, fake nails, bras and beads, clothes and heels.
I copy makeup videos on YouTube and style like Megan Barton-Hansen.
But I never answered the door wearing clothes and I feel trapped in the house like that.
On Monday mornings, I take off my work shoes and highway jackets as I go to work on highway maintenance.
No one will ever doubt anything.
I wish I could share my life and this secret but I don’t know where to start.

Daddy says: You don’t have to hide.
The way you dress as a woman is to express your femininity.
When you feel very alone in cross dressing, there are many men who enjoy it.
