Transgender formalwear? – By Amy Dickinson

Dear Amy: I am a transgender twentysomething with a bit of an etiquette problem.

Biologically, I am a female, and I do not plan on surgically transitioning into a male.

It can be difficult to explain my identity to people who are not familiar with the transgender umbrella.

While I am comfortable wearing men’s clothing or dressing androgynously, and I’m able to pass as either male or female should I desire, I am at a loss for what to wear at weddings and other formal occasions.
