World's Best Cross Dressing Guide
Transgender Guide's Lori Wynn
Interviews Author Jamie Young
By Lori Wynn, Webmaster of TGGuide.com
I am here with
Jamie Young, author of The
World’s Best Cross Dressing Guide.
Jamie’s guide is causing quite a buzz and is being widely regarded as
the ultimate how to guide for everyone in the MtF transgender community
including cross dressers, transsexuals and other gender variant folks.
I first learned of this publication from a pre-op transsexual friend who
was preparing for her full time transition. She had downloaded Jamie's
guide and spoke very highly of the layout and ease of use. Her early
transition was remarkable so I had to check it out for myself. I
reviewed the e-book and found that it was well written and indexed for
easy reference. This publication indeed should be used as a reference
guide and reviewed often to brush up on the finer points of passing in
The World's Best Cross Dressing Guide I contacted Jamie
to arrange to offer her guide to our visitors at
Guide. We began talking and quickly became friendly. Jamie
agreed to do an interview to let us get to know her better.
Jamie, Thank you for taking the time to chat
with us here at The Transgender Guide.
Will you tell us how you identify yourself along
the transgender continuum (ie. crossdresser, transvestite, transgender, pre-op,
Ha! It is an interesting question. I
consider myself a transvestite and a transgender because not only I prefer to
wear women’s clothes I also feel that I have been born with the wrong genitalia.
Although I was going to be on feminization hormone not very long ago, the
thought of having children of my own some day changed my mind. Therefore, I
guess I can’t really call myself a pre-op since I currently don’t plan to obtain
sexual reassignment surgery, at least not any time soon. :)
You’re so gorgeous. Many of us want to know how
long you have been crossdressing. How did it all begin?
You know. When I was eight years old,
I was just like many boys. I had toys like miniature trucks, cowboy hats and
action figures like Batman and Superman. My younger sister was lucky because she
had stuffed animals and Barbie dolls. I remember what I often did was I
would put one of my sister’s Barbie dolls in an imaginary situation where the
villain captured her and my Batman would come to her rescue. However, unlike
most boys, I imagined myself as the Barbie, not the Batman. I guess that was
when I discovered I was different. Then when I was twelve years old, I would
take my mother's clothes from her closet and prance in front of the mirror in
what is it like to be able to go out anywhere you want and be accepted as an
ordinary (and beautiful) woman?
My early attempts at passing
were during my puberty years. I was a pretty skinny kid and had a feminine face
and long hair. Passing was not much trouble. I attended a school where boys and
girls had to wear uniforms. What I did was I would "borrow" my sister's uniform
blouse and skirt and wear them in the public. No one could tell I was in the
wrong uniform. Once, I even attempted to pass at the beach by wearing just an
one-piece bathing suit that belonged to my mother. I had to hide my bulge really
well and I was extremely worried about that people would notice I had something
down there. I remember the cold water really helped. However, during my early
attempts at passing, I was read a few times because my voice was changing.
Nowadays, I still remain very passable because I maintain my figure well. It is
nice to be able to pass, you know, because no one would hassle me when I go out
share a little background information about yourself. For example; where you are
from, your academic and professional background and personal interests.
I am from Toronto, Ontario. I have been working
with the transgender community for over three years now. My academic background
includes psychology, criminology and liberal arts. My professional background
includes image consulting, acting and film making. I love dancing, music,
movies, romance novels, yoga and Tai Chi.
You have some unique qualifications. Will you
share how this helped in your creation of the World’s Best Cross Dressing Guide?
I have been
studying women's fashions for a long time and I have always been interested in
observing human behavior. Therefore, by constantly examining and comparing
other people's appearances and the ways they behave, I began to come up with a
long list of "do's and don'ts" to help me with my dressing. For example, I
learned that a real woman does not dress like a streetwalker with heavy
makeup when she shops at her local supermarket.
There are some bonus features you’ve added to
the guide that add tremendous value for readers. Will you give our members a
glimpse of what kind of tips and resources are included in your guide and in the
added bonus materials?
Yes, my book covers enormous techniques
and tricks so it saves its readers from struggling through many unnecessary
trials and errors. Also, my other four titles, "How to Find Your Female Voice
Handbook," "About Feminizing Hormonal Therapy," "Online & Offline Resources For
The Transgendered," and "Changing Your Identity Report" contain many resources
and lots of information and they help the readers to look as feminine and
passable as possible.
I have extracted the tables of
content from my guide and the added bonus materials for anyone who is interested
in what my books have to offer. You may view them via the following links.

What kind of feedback are you getting from
readers of your guide? It must be exciting to hear back from readers who find
success using your advice. Have you heard many success stories?
Yes, I do receive a lot of positive
feedback from the readers. My book "The World's Best Crossdressing Guide" has
helped many of its readers to enhance their passability as women. I’ve actually
had someone who told me that he was able to fool his own mother into believing
he was some girl whom her own son was dating.
You are uniquely qualified to write about
transgender topics. Do you have any new projects in the works?
Yes, I am currently working on a book
that provides lots of information and resources on gender reassignment. I am
also planning to work on a book that provides information on how to secure
employment for crossdressers who want to be en femme full time.
Many in the transgender community experience
anxiety, stress and frustration with their attempts to pass in public. What
advice do you have for those who are just beginning or those who are struggling
to achieve a passable feminine persona?
Creating a feminine face is the most
important part for an individual to pass as a female. You must have seen women
in men's clothes who try to talk and act like men. However, since their faces
are still feminine, you will never perceive them as men. What I am trying to say
is that it does not matter what you wear if your face does not pass. Also, you
must pay attention to what real women wear in public and learn from
them because you would rather "blend in" instead of drawing a lot of attention
to yourself. You don't want to dress like a showgirl who is about to go on stage
or a girl who just came from her prom.
Also, realistic expectation is very
important. If you act, talk and even look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, you cannot
expect to turn into supermodel Heidi Klum by flipping a switch. Keep in mind
that women come in all shape and sizes, so you must create your own passable
Privacy is important for the transgender
community. Can you tell us how you safeguard the privacy of buyers of the
World’s Best Cross Dressing Guide?
My books are available as digital
downloads so nothing will be delivered through the mail. Your privacy is very
important to me.
Do you have any closing comments for The
Transgender Guide community members?
I want all my "sisters" out there to
be able to pass as real women in public and I am very thankful for all the
encouragement I receive from my readers. I promise I will continue to improve
the content of my books by coming up with even better techniques for
Thank you so much for taking the time to let us

be sure to keep in touch.
