I had a great, “full circle” kind of moment tonight, getting a chance to hang out with a couple who were on the original CDOD list back in 2000. Amazing to be with a couple who not only survived but thrived with transness in the picture. & Thanks to you both – you know who you are.

& To everyone else who showed up at Bounce tonight – I won’t name you because I don’t now if any of you want to be named – thanks: I had a really great time. (& Do send me copies of whatever photos you took, pretty please!)

  1. Helen,
    I had a great time too. It was wonderful to talk more with you and Betty after having met at Borders on Sat. It was also a great pleasure to meet people from Alpha Omega Society and TransFamily at Bounce on Sunday. And yes — the couple that you reference above — love ’em!
    Again, thank you very much for adding your thoughtful prose to the body of lit on this subject. I’m poring through more of it today, in between items on the honey-do list. This is very good stuff.
    Be well,
    (p.s. Sorry, I took no photos, either.)

  2. Hi there, Helen,
    It was delightful to finally meet you and Betty in person. Ally and I had wonderful fun, met some people who already feel like friends, and look forward to the next time we meet. My only regret is that we did not have more time together—the sign of an evening to remember and signal for the need to meet again. Wow, indeed.

    Let’s hope Chicago treats you well and that you’ll be back home on the couch snuggling with the cats before you know it. I am mailing the photos we took. Before you get too excited about that, though, remember that we could not see what we were shooting in the low light …
    Take care, Darla.
