July 29, 2022 I attended the Plexus Summer Soiree! Plexus is Cleveland’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce. I am a proud member and really enjoy these events.
Most of the photos you see here were taken at home, as I was trying to get from work on one side of town, back home across town to get ready and then back again for the event. I am glad I do so but it was a few hours of rushing.
I love the dress, the different hues of red and pink. The purse was a day-of purchase that helped bring the whole thing together. I was so pleased with the red purse, jewelry, lipstick and the pink shoes. Yet again, someone commented how well put together I was.
I may not say this enough here, but I am truly blessed and am so happy to be the woman that I have become. It gives me such pleasure to navigate the world, clearly not born female, yet to receive such love. I have no real stories to tell from the event, except the one below. I grabbed a bite to eat at a local place, sat at the bar, no issues before the event began. I hung with a few friends and met a lovely psychiatrist who Zooms our community and we had a delightful scream at each other (the endless DJ disco music made conversation difficult). I know, I am old but so enjoy the art of conversation.
The one quick story is typical of my experiences. I wander from the soiree over to the adjacent hotel bar. I strike up a conversation with a couple from NY in town for a wedding. The gentleman in this couple buys my drink, clearly referring to me as “she”. I would have been happy with the “she”, but a drink on top of it, wow! Just another example of my being seen as just another person, a person worth knowing, but regular, every day people. The world is a wonderful place, just tune out the idiots on both sides in the media and you too can have these experiences.
