[LISTEN] 'I'm a proud, straight, male cross-dresser'

A straight, married, father-of-one chats to Sara-Jayne King about his alter-ego, Vera Wylde

Have you ever wondered why, when women wear shorts and pants, no-one bats an eyelid, but when men wear dresses and skirts people say they're cross-dressing?

A guest on Late Nights with Sara-Jayne King on Tuesday revealed how, as a straight, married, father-of-one he's been wearing typically 'female' clothes and make up for years.

I kind of mix and match and pull a little bit of a gender neutral.

Vera Wylde, cross-dresser

For a very long time people's perception of cross-dressing was men in drag and gay jokes.

Vera Wylde, cross-dresser

Vera - who is happily married - says his wife knew about his cross-dressing before they were married and, in fact, was the first person to find out.

I went to work and she decided to clean my room, and when I came back she confronted me with a pair of pantyhose she had found...she said 'who's are these?' - and I kind of sheepishly said 'those are mine', and she paused for a moment and then said 'Oh, well that's OK then!'

Vera Wylde, cross-dresser
