Lilly on the Spot: Sun, Sea and Clothes Galore

Harpers & Queen have asked me to do a piece under the title “Lilly, what would you wear on a Mediterranean island holiday?” Ooooh, now that is a question!

How Short is Too Short?

Now, this is a question that has troubled womankind for thousands of years. Well, at least since the 1960s, any way. Just how short does a dress or skirt have to be before it is too short? And, I would like to ask, is the answer any different for us cross-dressers? This question arose for … Continue reading How Short is Too Short?

Making My Mark

My dear friends, I have been doing a lot of soul-searching lately and I am worried that there is something about me that maybe I should change. I have been living with it for quite some time now, since October last year, actually. It’s not something I was particularly aware of myself but, since I … Continue reading Making My Mark

In space, no one can hear you squeal

As a man I find feminine vulnerability very attractive but as a woman I find female strength irresistible! This could be in my nature, but it's probably because, in 1979, at the tender age of fourteen, I saw Sigourney Weaver in Alien. Oh my goodness, Ripley!
