So, as many of you may or may not know, I was born male, but am starting the transition process to become female! I am very exited about this and am becoming more and more comfortable in my own skin. While I am not "out" officially yet as transgender in school I do wear somewhat "girly" clothing and try to present my own sense of style when choosing what way I dress for the day. Just earlier today I wore my girl American Eagle jeans into school for the first time, and only a few people noticed. The people that did say things to me gave me complements on my butt, which was nice.
But now that I am becoming more comfortable and want to show who I really am, I really want to go to prom as a girl! I feel like this would make me feel beautiful and really present who I am to the outside world. I have talked about it with some of my friends that know and they are supporting of me going in a dress and high heels, but, just like me, aren't sure where I should look for prom dresses that would fit me, as well as look good on me! I am 5'9" and weigh 170 pounds. Thankfully I have an athletic build and somewhat have hips, but not as much as a girl, obviously.
Any help you could give me in the way of prom dresses or general transgender prom stuff would be great! Another thing I was pondering was if I would need administration approval for going to prom like this. My admin already know that I am a transgirl because of a bathroom incident (Not my fault, they seemed to think they legally didn't have to provide me a gender-neutral bathroom!), so should I ask them if I can go to prom this way? I'm not entirely sure how to go about this, I want to make sure I can go to prom and just have a good time, not cause a scene if they wouldn't allow me entrance.
Hugs, Kisses, and Crinkles!
