    I still have a couple of cross dresser magazines. Need to dig them out and post which one(s) I have. Reading those magazines was the only way to know I was not alone. Then the internet came along and I was able to find local support groups to go and visit. It was so nice to meet other CDs.

    I found this old illustrators' take on CG.

    I could no more deny Her than I would my own soul.

    I went to high school in Brooklyn, NY from '62 to '66 and regular used the 42nd Street Library at 42nd and 5th Avenue in Manhattan to do papers. Lunch times were spent cruising the ADULT book stores on 42nd up past Times Square. I bought tons of TG fiction books as well as Magazines about professional female impersonators. My two favorites that I dreamed of being like are pictured below from my collection. I also loved the fiction no matter how unbelievable it was. Here is an old illustration to add to the story line here. BTW I went to confession the first chance I got after I walked and shopped that part of the City.

    I was a teenager in the seventies and I remember a few different resources. There were cheaply printed books of Crossdressing stories by Reluctant press and Empathy press that you could find in the seedier bookstores. I had a pretty limited amount of money back then so could only buy a few of those books every few months. I seem to remember having to work for something like 3 hours to pay for a single one of those books. There was also the Penthouse Variations magazine, which was a compilation of kinkier stories where you would occasionally see a crossdressing story. I also remember the Michael Salem ads that used to be in a lot of those types of magazines. It is far times easier to find such things now then it used to be back then, when crossdressing was a very niche and somewhat hidden thing. Definitely some fond memories.

    I remember seeing the Michael Salem ads in some of the girly mags when I was young. It was food for thought, or should I say food for fantasy at the time. Just knowing that there was a place to buy such items was a thrill. I knew that I was not alone being someone who wanted to wear women's clothes. Alas it was too risky to buy anything at the time. On an interesting note, you can still find Michael Salem surfing the web, so I assume they are still in business.
    I like myself, regardless of the packaging that I may come in! It's what is on the inside of the package that counts!

    So did I and couldn’t believe it. I went into the store in NYC and bought my first panties, garter belt and stockings there. What fun!

    Way before my time, but I love looking at old photographs. Thanks for the link, Chloe.

    Clearly, the cashier was not the proprietor, or they wouldn’t have behaved like that. If they had an objection to the merchandise they carried, they should do everyone a favor and find employment elsewhere.

    Anyone remember Virginia Prince's TRANSVESTIA? I bought every issue for years. It was like I was living my dream when I read a new issue. And, yes, adult book stores appreciated my purchasing.

    There is a dealer on eBay who has a lot of the old magazines on CD's. No pun intended. Look under vintage crossdresser erotica.

    Not really...
    I remember a time when TV material was only available in porno shops.

    Then there is the absolutely horrible , totally disjointed movie, "Glen or Glenda" ..... written and directed by Ed Wood who was a TV himself. He also stared in the movie.
    He did not have a clue about TVs other than what he was personally into and put forth the false idea as fact that all TVs are the result of of bad childhood upbringing .
    He did not even seem to know what a TS was.
    IMO, that movie caused a lot of damage to the public's perception of CDs
    It's sort of like "Reefer Madness" in its overall absurdity.
