Introduction I was born Frank Cleve, a genetic male. I existed for 40 years trying to be a man while longing to be a woman. Thanks to the love and support of my wife, Joy, I now live as male and female, without surgery or hormones. (Some call us transvestites or crossdressers. I prefer “femulator” because I do emulate females.) On my blog, Longing to be a Woman, I share how, after decades of trial and error, I have learned to integrate femulation into my life. I lived and worked as a woman, in public, without detection for two years in Los Angeles (2000-2002) and I appeared on nationally-syndicated television (not as a femulator but as a real woman, in 2000). Joy and I are Unitarian Universalists (a most welcoming, supportive church) and I created this blog in an attempt to help the public understand ordinary heterosexual femulators like myself. My blog contains advice, narcissism, lots of photos, femininity and facts but no advertising, nudity, links to porn sites or misogyny of any kind. After all, I love women so much I wanted to be one! - Kathryn Diane Cleve
