Hi, I am a 51 year old closet crossdresser. Otherwise very happily married. I have chosen Terri as my fem name and my question is as follows; "how do I tell my wife of 25 years in a way that won't hurt her"? (from Terri in the Boston Area)

64:54 Boston area (and some national) announcements
67:24 Christie Lee Littleton made history earlier this year when the Texas Supreme Court denied her right to sue an insurance company for the wrongful death of her husband by declaring her a "male" despite her having a vagina and other female appearance characteristics. The court argued her marriage was invalid because her chromosomes (which were never tested) were "male". Christie Lee is currently challenging, with the aid of a group of transgender attorneys, the ruling that she is a male, a ruling that can affect us all. Christie Lee tells her story, in her own words.
