SOCIAL SKILLS WORKSHOP

Are you shy when out and about dressed as a woman, presenting as the real you?
Do you avoid eye contact, avoid social chat with shop assistants, people on public transport, friendly people on the street?
Are you anxious when you do so or does your anxiety stop you even going out at all?

This session is designed to be a skill share around how to interact socially as a cross dresser or transgender woman in general life today.
