Not really trans news

Two friends made a pact. Whichever one of them died first, the other agreed to wear a dress to his funeral. Well, one of the lads was a private in the Black Watch, and he died in Afghanistan. I can't fault the courage of either man, but did the dress have to be bright GREEN??? I'd have at least toed the line of respectability, and worn a tasteful Little Black Dress. And tights. And heels. And...


  1. The pact was Elliott's idea: a year ago, while the friends were watching Delaney's widescreen television together, he began hypothesising about his funeral. They both laughed at the suggestion of wearing women's clothes and shook on it. It was decided that the dress would be as loud as possible: a pink number with green spots was the suggested colour combination.

  2. Thank you for the info, BW. I hope I haven't given offense. It wasn't my intention.
