Have you ever felt so alone or like you don’t have a voice to use? My name is Drew-Ashlyn aka the girl in the pink dress to some I’m just simply known as “the tranny behind the bar” Its crazy how people automatically put you under a label, instead of being seen as a human.

I’m here to talk about the ups, downs and in-betweens of what its like to be me and to have people listen to my thoughts and views. I don’t just want to be known as “the tranny behind the bar” although in some aspects it has had its plus sides. I want to be looked at as a kind, warm hearted person who just wants to get along and live life to the full.

Here’s a little about me, I was born in Aldershot along with my two beautiful big sisters. My dad was in 3 Para so I moved in total 7 times around the U.K and have so far lived in 9 houses wow I sound like I should be telling this story on “my big fat gypsy wedding.

It’s pretty obvious I’ve had a past with the whole sex change thing going on; to me that was another person. I don’t regret the things I’ve done as the person I was before but I’d rather lay them to rest. This is a new life and a new beginning for me.

I’ve been living as a woman for nearly 5 years it seems less to be honest but it really is that long. I don’t live as a man nor do I look at myself as one.

I currently work as a barmaid and lady gaga dance enthusiast haha at Club Odyssey in Wakefield. It’s defiantly a highlight in my life as it made me the person I am to day. I met so many amazing people there who gave me the confidence to be who I want to be.

I think if people basically justify you by what’s between your legs then I kind of feel sorry for all those who have accidents and now have no bottom halves! What does that now make them? Gender less?

Seriously it would be nice for people to look at me as a person rather then my gender.

The most common questions I get asked is are you a man or a woman? I kind of get why people ask that but ever thought of saying hello first. I don’t think I look like a man nor do I appear as one so it’s kind of confusing to me when people ask especially if there not going to take me home for a “zig a zig ahh”

Another thing I get is “is your hair real” yes it is although I did buy 60% of it from eBay. Hey give me a break I’m a girl on a budget!

I hope the columns I produce, will inspire you, make you laugh, make you cry and make you fall in love with me. I’m just here to show the world or at least Wakefield that it doesn’t matter who you are, what you are, or even what you look like if you have a hunch back, just throw a little glitter on it, and go dancing.

Anyway guys more to come next month only on my column right here at www.gaywakefield.com

Peace and love from ”The girl in the Pink Dress”
