An estimated 250,000 men in Britain escape the pressures of life by wearing women’s clothing. This documentary explores the relationship between three transvestite couples as seen through the eyes of the wives.
Sheila, a retired secretary from Ardersier, near Inverness, had been married to Dennis for just 18 months when he admitted he was a transvestite who like to be called Denise. She was initially shocked and confused but by controlling how Denise emerged she came to accept and love her. But the isolated community around them are not so broad minded.
The first time Robin from Chicago met Dean in Yorkshire, he was dressed as Dianne but they hit it off immediately, “I never in a million years thought I’d marry a transvestite but I was taught not to judge a book by its cover”
In Nottingham Sam had known Chris for a few months before he revealed his feminine alter ego Rachel. Initially she wasn’t fazed, but over time it lead to insecurities, “he was getting more excited about the fact that he was getting dressed than about having sex – what’s wrong with me?”
