Six go mad in Tewkesbury,
"Re-enactors do it with big weapons"
Many trans-folk understandably start totally new lives when they transition, leaving behind all they were before. I know now that I could never do that...but I would have tried to do exactly that if it wasn't for my friend Jo who back in August 2002 made me promise to contact old friends again. I owe her a lot.
This weekend I paid a visit to an event that has had a big influence in my recent life - Tewkesbury Medieval Fayre. The last time I went to this event was in 1997 (a week after I married), so it was particularly filled with emotion for me. Not only was I fortunate enough to visit the Fayre with several new friends, but I also bumped into friends from my past (in the beer tent, oddly enough!) who I haven't seen for years.
I've been thinking about it for a while, but I'm now certain that I'll be rejoining the re-enactment circuit sooner or later...probably next year. Once I've had a bit more facial hair removal done and had Facial Feminisation Surgery doing without makeup will be a lot easier for me.
