[LISTEN] 'I'm a proud, straight, male cross-dresser'
Have you ever wondered why, when women wear shorts and pants, no-one bats an eyelid, but when men wear dresses and skirts people say they're cross-dressing?

Vera - who is happily married - says his wife knew about his cross-dressing before they were married and, in fact, was the first person to find out.
