Jeremy Jeffery, 56, from Beverley, has always felt more comfortable in women’s clothes. Two years ago, he chose to start wearing skirts and dresses in public and then asked to order a skirt as part of his Tesco uniform. He is overjoyed at the support he has been given.

Mr Jeffery told the Hull Daily Mail: “I’ve been this way in terms of wanting to wear women’s clothes all my life, but in the early days I kept it quiet.

“It is no secret that I liked to wear heeled boots, and then started having my nails done, but transitioned to wearing a skirt in public around Christmas time two years ago.

“It was a big deal but it kickstarted to wearing women’s clothing full time when my manager accepted my order of a skirt when I needed a new uniform at Tesco.

“I got full acceptance and support of management to do this and the team have been brilliant.

“In the first couple of days it was scary wearing a skirt to work, but now I’m a lot happier and so glad I did it.

“There were a couple of second glances from customers, but I was actually pleasantly surprised how little reaction there was.”

Mr Jeffery said that the amount of negative feedback can be “counted on one hand” and the people in his town have been friendly and encouraging.

He said: “I often get asked if I’m gay – well no, I’m not, I’ve had girlfriends and it’s great because we can share a wardrobe.

“I just merely feel more comfortable and relaxed in women’s clothes – I don’t want to be a woman but I just like the more feminine way of dressing.

“I enjoy football, nights out with the lads, love my sports and all the blokey stuff like that.

“I do have wigs but I don’t really wear them and just have my natural hair.

“Basically, I’m a guy who wears a skirt and I feel a lot happier now I can just be myself and get on with life.”
