Welcome to Sí, a site by Irish transvestites about Irish transvestism. We are the hidden transgender people of Ireland.
Transgender is often mentioned in the media, but almost always in the context of people who have transitioned or are intending to transition: People who start out in one gender and change entirely to the opposite one.
But they are only a part of the transgender spectrum, the small tip of a large iceberg. Below the surface and generally invisible to the media are greater numbers whose transgenderness is usually only expressed on a partial or part-time basis.
Within the diverse range of groups and identities on the transgender spectrum, the group who identify as males with a female side is one of the largest and without doubt the most secretive. We are this group. Those of us who have felt the need to leave the privacy of our homes and join in a community with others usually call ourselves transvestites or trannies. That is in Ireland and the UK - our American sisters prefer to be known as crossdressers.
This website has a deliberately narrow focus: Its object is to provide information and reassurance to emerging transvestites and their supporters and to rebalance the public narrative of what it means to be transgender.
