Work Wear

For transgender and gender non-conforming people like myself, the question of what to wear to work becomes an exhausting question of identity and of survival.

For us, the question changes from “how do I present my best self at work?” to “can I present my best self at work?”

    I am lucky, both in that my workplace is pretty relaxed about clothing, and in that typically I’m most comfortable wearing a button-up shirt, flouncy scarf, and some jewelry. Occasionally a twinky t-shirt, but — again, lucky.

    Oh man, I struggle with this too! Luckily for me I’m going into nursing so my uniforms will be unisex scrubs. However, I do struggle with what to wear for formal occasions such as job interviews or a company party.

    If you all figure out something good, let me know…
