In 1975 a group of married heterosexual Los Angeles California Crossdressers formed CHIC. They saw a need for a special kind of sorority with an emphasis on security and a place the wives would feel comfortable. In those days there were only a handful of groups most of which were support groups that met hidden in back rooms. The founding members had become comfortable with their crossdressing wanted to have fun. Even though most of the early meetings were in private homes they did venture out to mainstream places occasionally which was very risky in 1975.
Many of our members were in high profile occupations and cared deeply for their wives and children’s feelings. The “outing” of a member might complicate the member’s relationship with his employer. There is also the possible of problems with relatives and neighbors not to mention divorce.
CHIC formed a club which has security as an important concern and still is. We have requirements for membership which protect our member’s privacy. Member’s refer to each other by their femme name only. Occupations and family member names are not discussed unless the member volunteers them.
Usually only one or two members know or have access to any member’s male information. They are the initial interviewer of the new applicant, and the Membership Secretary. Guests are not allowed at meetings without PRIOR board approval. Please click on the Joining CHIC selector for information on our membership requirements.
Because security is a priority CHIC offers a relaxing venue members can enjoy companionship of other Cossdressers and wives.
