I am in the very early planning stages of writing fiction about a middle aged, predominantly hetrosexual male who is a (closeted, if the term is appropriate for use in this sense) cross dresser. I very much want to do this idea justice, and not have it turn into something of a joke. I want to look at people's responses to it (namely that of his closet male friend) and his own feleings about it/people knowing about it. Anything you could offer me that might be useful - I'm looking for a broad spectrum of information so I can build up an accurate understanding of this character within my mind. To be honest, I know nothing past a basic level of cross dressing. Mostly, what I'm interested in is how cross dressers feel about it themselves.
