Join the DC Trans Ladies for our St. Patrick’s Day with a Twist Soiree

Hi ladies, don your favorite green attire and join us at our “Saint Patrick’s Day with a Twist” Soiree in bustling downtown Bethesda! ☘️We will be hanging out at the bar, lounge, and restaurant ’til the bar closes around 11 pm. Be sure to join us for our new girls’ hosted happy hour in Beth’s suite (5-6 pm) followed by dinner at the hotel’s restaurant (6-8 pm).

The full-service bar at Doubletree Bethesda

 

After 11 pm, we have the option of heading to a local bar such as the Brickside, or Harp & Fiddle, or another local venue that makes sense to the post-11pm adventurers (if you have ideas or a strong preference please let us know through messages or conversations). Crash at the hotel, and be sure to book using our group rate.

At our signature soirees, we invite trans-women, their partners, and friends to socialize, network, and relax. We encourage new girls to come out to help boost their confidence and garner tips from those more experienced. And of course, we love having our regulars come out too!

If you’re not feeling ready for girl mode in public, you are still welcome to attend in guy mode. Upon arrival, introduce yourself as a member to the hosts, and we will welcome you warmly. Please consider joining us at the Pre-Soiree Dinner in the hotel’s dining room. It is an opportunity to sit with your sisters and get to know them.

The Doubletree hotel staff is eager to have us, and they’ve set up a special room rate of $89/night. For the discount, book directly with Brittany at 240.235.1663 and tell her you are with the DC Regional Trans Ladies group.

If you’re looking to get your Soiree makeup professionally applied, our very own Elizabeth Taylor (Beth) will be offering makeup makeovers at her room in the hotel (http://makeoverswithelizabethtaylor.fullslate.com). Other makeover artists are listed on our discussion board.

Beth Taylor will be taking event photos during dinner and the Soiree, which will save many girl’s smartphone battery. Bring out your ☘️ Irish props ☘️ and have some fun!

We look forward to seeing you all at our Saint Patrick’s Day Soiree!

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Poem written by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Model: Kimberly Moore
Photographer and Makeup Artist: Elizabeth Taylor
I

Who would be
A mermaid fair,
Singing alone,
Combing her hair
Under the sea,
In a golden curl
With a comb of pearl,
On a throne?

II

I would be a mermaid fair;
I would sing to myself the whole of the day;
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair;
And still as I comb’d I would sing and say,
‘Who is it loves me? who loves not me?’
I would comb my hair till my ringlets would fall
Low adown, low adown,
From under my starry sea-bud crown
Low adown and around,
And I should look like a fountain of gold
Springing alone
With a shrill inner sound
Over the throne
In the midst of the hall;
Till that great sea-snake under the sea
From his coiled sleeps in the central deeps
Would slowly trail himself sevenfold
Round the hall where I sate, and look in at the gate
With his large calm eyes for the love of me.
And all the mermen under the sea
Would feel their immortality
Die in their hearts for the love of me.

III

But at night I would wander away, away,
I would fling on each side my low-flowing locks,
And lightly vault from the throne and play
With the mermen in and out of the rocks;
We would run to and fro, and hide and seek,
On the broad sea-wolds in the crimson shells,
Whose silvery spikes are nighest the sea.
But if any came near I would call and shriek,
And adown the steep like a wave I would leap
From the diamond-ledges that jut from the dells;
For I would not be kiss’d by all who would list
Of the bold merry mermen under the sea.
They would sue me, and woo me, and flatter me,
In the purple twilights under the sea;
But the king of them all would carry me,
Woo me, and win me, and marry me,
In the branching jaspers under the sea.
Then all the dry-pied things that be
In the hueless mosses under the sea
Would curl round my silver feet silently,
All looking up for the love of me.
And if I should carol aloud, from aloft
All things that are forked, and horned, and soft
Would lean out from the hollow sphere of the sea,
All looking down for the love of me.

Allison and I had a ball at this photoshoot. We originally planned on an outdoor steampunk-themed shoot on the lake, but the weather just didn’t cooperate. So we took some of our favorite props—a corset, bustle skirt, choker, and peacock feathers and made a day of it inside.
