    Ever been on TV dressed?

    Years ago on "The View" I thought I saw a woman who looked like she had a makeover by Jamie Austin. The camera kept showing her as she was sitting in the front or second row. Then it stopped showing her.
    Now, my question is: Have any of you been on television as part of the audience (whether seen or not by the cameras)? I know that some have taken part in documentaries (such as our Melanie Rudd) and a few more I can't remember offhand. So, if you have been part of a documentary or television show en femme, post it here, too.

    Quite possibly. I know I've been filmed. Last year at the North Hampton Pride parade there was someone with a camera who I later found out was making a documentary about the event. I don't know if it ever came out or was seen on TV, but if it did, I'm sure I was in it somewhere.

    I've already been in two Newspapers and a magazine dressed, so TV is no big deal to me.

    I haven't been on TV but the Google earth shot just recently taken has me 3/4 enfemme in front of my store. That pic should be good for four years. The last one was taken in 2004.

    Yes, I have had the news cameras focused on me for extended periods of time at two events.
    The first event was at the Winnipeg Pride parade where the topic theme of that year was about transgender rights. On all 4 local newscasts, the coverage started with the camera focusing on Vanessa and I either while we were carrying the Masquerade group banner or while I was interacting with spectating friends.
    The second event was taken during the Transday of Remembrance ceremony. It was another news topic coverage by one newscast. I was not happy with being focused on at this event as the bright lights from the camera blinded me during the reading of the names. In my opinion, the focus should have been on the reading of the names and not on me/those in attendance.

    I'll be a part of the Masquerade members participating in a documentary on the local Shaw cable channel sometime in the New Year. We are in the midst of negotiating

    On the news twice, once for Portland Pride parade and another time for a outragous party that spilled out into the city streets. Either one is really nothing to write home about thou.

    Some interesting replies so far. Thanks, girls. Anybody else out there? I see nobody has confessed to being in the audience of "The View."

    When I was at a CD convention in New York, unknown to me, they were filming the Cinemax documentary, "All Dressed Up and No Place To Go", for showing on Cable TV.
    A few years later I obtained a copy and found they had filmed me doing a walk-on. My 15 min. of fame!

    Way Way too many years ago they were filming a commercial at a thrift store on Fulton Ave. in Sacramentowhile I was there. I had no idea that the camera was on me for a few seconds while they were sweeping the camera around the store. several months later I saw the commercial on tv, and I saw myself. I was in the dress section, near the front of the store, holding a red formal dress up in the air in front of me. Most likely I was looking for defects. I did buy the dress by the way. Too bad it no longer fits.
    Don't let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

    This is something the Brits are very big on these days, with surveillance video cameras mounted on practically every major building in their cities. Likely started as a 9/11 over-reaction, and gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Smile! You're on Candid Camera!"

    I haven't been on TV dressed yet, but will be on national TV this spring. A film crew have been following 10 people (TV and TS) since this spring. They have filmed us on events, at home, doing hobbies/sports and for a few also at work. Some of us are showing both modes (I am). It will be a documentary series with 8 to 10 episodes, each about an hour.

    I like your sense of humour Leslie!

    But come to think of it, didn't we have a thread recently asking which celebrity we would like to be, or emulate?

    My television appearance

    In 1990, I appeared on the noon show of my local NBC-TV affiliate to do basic gender education and tell about our local support group.

    People at my work watched while they ate lunch.

    I went shopping for shoes afterward and was recognized by the SA. I later learned that a woman I had known for 30 years recognized me.

    My mom told me that the "girl" with me looked great and that I spoke well.

    Negative fallout: NONE
    What's between your legs and what you like to do with it is your business, not mine. Please give me the same courtesy.
    Everyone who refers to sexuality as a preference reveals their own bisexuality.
    I hope to live long enough to see a time when one's sexuality or gender identity is no more important than one's religion or politics.
    DO link up with your local support group. It's an easy way to meet similar people, help others, educate the public and be part of the political process.

    I played Coporal Klinger in my high school's production of M*A*S*H years ago, if that counts.
