Being a Gay Man in a Woman’s Body – Donna Williams

In the book, Everyday Heaven I wrote of feeling like I was a gay man in a woman’s body. I recently stumbled upon others who have written the same and the comments they received showed how those who don’t experience this simply have no idea.

Now, what I do know is I am female, and I’m ok with having a female body, its a body, its mine. I haven’t wanted to have a male one, even though I have dressed up as a man and love to wear a man’s jumper, jacket or hat. I did the whole drag thing twice, complete with mustache and it was fun. But I’m not a drag king.
