M-Spectrum

M-Spectrum is open to all bois, transmen, trannyfags, FtMs, and those questioning. Basically all people who are or think they are towards the male end of the gender spectrum whether you’re a masculine person in a “female” body, a “fully medically transitioned man” or an effeminate transman doesn’t matter. We hope to see you there!

M-Spectrum meets the 3rd Sundays of the month in the southern part of Phoenix, near 44th Street and Elliot.

Ladies Night Out

Crossdressing can be fun– discovering yourself and developing this inner person. Is it scary? You bet. Is it exhilarating? Very much so! Will I be criticized or ostrasized by others? In all probablility, no. YOU have the ability to enjoy yourself and others by expressing this innermost desire to show your feminine side.
