Trans Visibility Day

I am not qualified to write the experience of a transperson in transition in the plot of a story. But I do have a trans character in a supporting role. Cris is married to Caitlyn and both of them have been swap partners with Eric and Elena, the married couple at the center of We Three and We Fit.

They danced a little. But the club wasn’t the same when you didn’t come to play. Elena found herself slipping away to the bathroom and checking her makeup.

“El? You’re still out here?”

She looked over to see Cris, a transwoman, touching up her makeup at the neighboring sink. “You and Eric are always headed back to the playrooms by this time.”

“You and Caitlyn, too,” Elena said, recalling the woman’s wife fondly; they had married last year, and Eric and Elena had been on the short guest list.

“Not feeling it with anybody out there tonight. Might start looking elsewhere.”

Elena agreed, “It’s just not the same.”

“Really? Never thought you and Eric might stop.” Cris kissed Elena’s cheek as she passed to go out the door.

Elena studied her reflection. Where had that come from? Was she ready to give up clubbing?

Max had already started to flirt with Chana, giving her a playful salute, when Eric returned with Caitlyn and Cris. Both wore complete Air Force dress uniforms. A quick glance showed their name tags both read C. Tinglass, so they’d married while in service, something Elena realized she had not known. She wondered if Cris had transitioned MTF before or after her discharge. While the military was coming along with LGBTQ rights, Elena knew it wasn’t an easy place to be different. Cris and Caitlyn were both regular partners with her and Eric at the club, though they hadn’t seen each other much in the last month. She hugged Cris and asked, “How are you?”

Bright brown eyes shone in a slender face with rounded pouty lips. “We’ve been playing the gay clubs,” Cris said. “So glad to get Eric’s call. Ready to spend a night drama-free.”

Caitlyn rolled her eyes, leaned close, and kissed Elena’s cheek before whispering in her ear, “She means she is ready to get fucked by your fella.”

“Eric will be happy to hear that,” Elena replied. “And you?”

“Anyone else here play with the ladies as well as you do?” Caitlyn asked. Elena blushed. She’d forgotten how easily Caitlyn expressed her pleasures.

Eric and Elena are good friends and frequent sex partners with Cris, my transitioned MTF character, and her wife, Caitlyn. Elena has a brief curiosity about when the transition happened, but she knows it happened, and she and Eric only see a happily married, former Navy couple who are dear friends and sometimes sex partners.
