Ladies Luncheon - Meet Samirah

Ok so this is a tad embarrassing but hey, I seem to specialize in that department

My first experience of Transgender was not what you'd expect..........I left a gay club one night with a guy. We got to his. I got naked and he reeled in shock when he saw I didn't have a dick.......he thought I was Trans. Ironically we both ended up laughing about it, we have remained friends and he's now in a relationship with a gay male friend of mine.

Following that I was working at an Art gallery where I met a stunning brown Trans woman called Katherine. She had been in the original Les Girls with Carlotta. I'd go to her house and there were photos of her and Jean Paul Gaultier everywhere. She had 2 bedrooms just for her clothes and loved giving me all the clothes that she didn't fit or got bored with. I think I own about 20 pairs of shoes she has given me. She traveled the world having affairs with millionaires and celebrities...........she was my glamorous introduction to Transgender Women.

Thanks to an internet connection and a facebook account, I've stumbled across another beautiful Trans woman called Samirah. Ever since Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner very publicly transitioned, i've been curious as to how this has changed things for the community. What I admire in Samirah is, not only has she come out as a woman.......she's not doing it in a safe place, she's transgender in the middle east. I find that kind of courage so utterly inspiring

Me "where do you live and what do you do to pay the rent and afford fabulous clothes?"
Samirah:I live in the middle East in the gcc region. I wish not to mention the name of the country. I work as a çartoonist and marketing director for achieving my dreams. My dream to be me.

Me:How old were you when you realized you were actually a female trapped in a male body?"
Samirah:To what I remember and recall... I was 8 yrs old. It was my first move towards my identity. I sneaked into my sisters clothes and I felt its for me. I felt the joy the happiness when the fabric touched my skin. Although it might be considered an erotic fetish I feel its freedom and your insights giving you thrills of happiness

Me:Have you had any surgery, or do you plan to in the future?
Samirah:No, i haven't got any surgery done.. it is quite unfortunate till now. I always have been living under a shadow of fears, religious intolerance's and x factors towards transgender communities. I have been saving my funds for a better future. YES! i will be having my surgery as soon as I am able to.

Me:Has Bruce Jenner transitioning to Caitlyn made it an easier to be accepted socially as a trans woman?
Samirah:I dont think so and it is strictly my opinion. Its always a brave and a strong move for anyone especially having such a high status. Its not Bruce/Caitlyn , its about the other real brave transwomen who fight for dignity everyday even though they are never in the spotlight. I believe someday transwomen will have a better place, and its always going to tough. But if the going gets tough.. the tough gets going.

Me:You know I am so jealous of your beautiful hair
Samirah:hahahahaha.... its not your jealousy, its your beautiful admiring skills!... you admire the courage and translate it into your jealousy... You are like my mentor.. my inspiration. You are one of the few who will never have Jealously ever.. my mermaid!

Me:"Best thing about being a woman?
Samirah: everything...

Samirah..........shine on lady. You are divine x
