Editorial Reviews

Brenda Thomas
This book helped me find myself! After reading Dr. Rudd’s wonderful first book, My Husband Wears My Clothes, I was eager to read her second book, Crossdressing With Dignity. I was not disappointed. This book gave me the answers I was seeking about the fears and guilt feelings I had experienced most of my life when I admitted to myself and others that I was a crossdresser. After reading this book which describes over 800 crossdressers like me, I know I am not alone and I am an OK person. In fact I learned I may have found the best of both sides of my personality, the femininity I love and the masculinity that provides balance in my life. Thank you Dr. Rudd for writing this book!
—Texas 5 Stars
James Young
This book on crossing gender lines is a classic! Crossdressing With Dignity by Dr. Peggy Rudd is based on a survey completed by 859 crossdressers worldwide. This book addresses the many fears, guilt and other emotions faced by the millions of men in the world who have crossed gender lines through their love of feminine attire and femininity. This book should be read by every mental health and counseling helping professional.
