On January 1, 2009, I ventured online as Gabrielle for the first time. In preparation to begin interacting with others, I created a flickr account and uploaded my first femme-photo. Prior, only my wife had seen me this way.
Posting that first photo was a bit strange at the time. I felt exposed to some extent.

It may be April 1st, but this is no joke. When you take a look at Phyllis, the word “babe” comes to mind and for good reason. Not only is she a hottie with amazing legs, she’s got style, a playful spirit, and a beauty that the camera captures very nicely as seen in her flickr photos.
Phyllis is an eye-catching t-girl living in California. She enjoys a variety of activities including hiking, gardening, making spicy pizzas from fresh dough, oil painting, and listening to awesome pop and classical music to name a few.
Currently in a serious relationship, she’s a straight male to female crossdresser with a fun sense of humor. Her motto is “celebrate feminity forever” and if her pictures are any indication, she does this with passion and an obvious love of life.
Phyllis shared with us that she was a member of a rock band years ago. She’s still making music and plays the guitar, piano and synthesizer.

We’re happy to announce a new reoccurring segment called “Babe of the Week”. It doesn’t require much explanation – the title pretty much sums it up and our first official myCDlife “babe” is quite the knock-out!
Nikki Welsh is a gorgeous t-girl with style, personality, and legs to die for. Married with kids, she’s a straight male to female crossdresser living in the Western U.S.
On her flickr account you will find dozens of beautiful photos boasting a variety of different looks that she pulls off very nicely. Each photo includes a playful caption. It is obvious that she has a great time in front of the camera, and you’re sure to have just as much fun enjoying the fruits of her work.
It’s important to understand that Nikki is not just another pretty face in the transgendered community. There’s a lot more to this t-girl than just good looks. In her blog, Nikki Welsh’s Lost in Trans Elation, Nikki explores the complexities of being a crossdresser and her deep emotions involved.
