Tranny Life in Copenhagen
Rebecca’s Homepage startede i 1999 som en turistguide med min artikel ‘Tranny life in Copenhagen’ som jeg netop havde fĂĽet publiceret i den engelske Tranny Guide.

Latest update September 2020 – All about Tranny Life in Copenhagen told to you by Rebecca Holm – the GoGirl

My name is Rebecca and I’m living in Copenhagen. I’m an easy-going tranny; love my life as male/female and visa versa. Quite an inbetweeny! It brings me so much pleasure and gives me the opportunity to express my whole personality.
Being a tranny is a most wonderful and positive part of my life. Crossdressing since my teens I worked as a showgirl and male/female DJ in gay discos during the disco era. Today, being confident with my role(s) in life, my aim is to be a trendily dressed streetgirl.
From 1997-2001 I were the editor of the Danish tranny magazine TiDs, and in 2002 I became part of the editorial team on the Scandinavian tranny magazine Attitude.
Furthermore I joined the editorial team on the danish transgender forum TransPortalen for four years.
I’ve written A Personal Report on Copenhagen for Tranny Guide since 1999, and ind 2000 my article on Copenhagen were nominated for Best Personal International Report.
During MIX•Copenhagen LesbianGayBiTrans Film Festival 2012 I were invited to introduce the transgender movie from 1968 "The Queen" in Cinemateket at The Danish Film Institute. This were a great new experience to me, and I’ll continue looking around finding new and interesting aspects to explore within the tranny world.

Tranny Life in Copenhagen

Looking back the world is changing – talking tolerance even to the better
In general Denmark has a very relaxed attitude towards gay people and trannies, and especially younger trannies go everywhere to have fun with their friends.
The strong gay community has made a tremendous public relations job for the past 25 years or so. In 1989 Denmark was the first country to legalise gay weddings, and you’ll find the Danish society much more tolerant than many other countries around the world.
The TV-organisations should always be a safe place for insecure trannies to go, and will be needed as long as new-born trannies have problems finding their way, and needs the support from other more experienced sisters. However attitudes have changed rapidly over the last twenty years, and being a tranny in Denmark shouldn’t be a problem to anyone today. Fortunately it seems like the young generation of trannies quickly realize the much wider opportunities to express themselves, not only in the club venue, but in public as well.

Of course we have to maintain pressure politically and publicly – and we are.
In the last couple of years trannies have appeared to be the ‘Darlings of the Press’ in Denmark. Although having experienced tremendous interest from every media, we’re well aware that focus might chance we really try to capitalise on the current situation. We have taken the opportunity to spread general awareness, but what might be more important, we actively try to increase our influence in a more political way.

My ‘happy-go-lucky’ and socialising soul require some uplifting activities from time to time
This is why we in 98 established a tranny night out named Butterfly Club at Never Mind, a most friendly and relaxed gay bar with a small dancefloor, occasionally presenting dragshow, stand-up and live jazz music. The Butterfly Club inspired by enthusiastic trannies returning from London telling about the WayOut Club. Being run on private initiative it were a much smaller venue of course, like a tiny waterhole in the big city, and the party went on for nearly 9 years with regular meetings every month. But new places open and close like a glimse nowadays. Butterfly Club had it’s fair share of popularity andlike a butterfly it folded the wings in 2007.

Exciting events happens if you go for it
During June 2002 five more trannies and I were photographed for Bianco Footwear’s new campaign hitting the streets in August 2002. The advert said "He didn’t know about our MEN’S COLLECTION" and the pictures in the catalogue show six pretty, good-looking trannies on six different and very personal pictures. This specific catalogue reached cult status in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, where the Bianco shops are situated. Especially young people, boys and girls, were extremely positive about our participation in this campaign. The company, too, were so excited about the result that they hired us to do a fashion show, too. The Original Bianco Girls went to Aarhus in Jutland to do the catwalk on the opening night on a new mediacafĂŠ/nightclub – and that too was well received. A string of fashion shows followed during autumn 2002 and by now we’re known in the tranny community as ‘the Catwalk Queens’. It were the first time trannies had been part of a highly professional campaign for a fashion company in Scandinavia, and I’m really excited about the positive cooperation we’ve had with the Bianco crew, the extremely talented photographer Casper Sejersen and the wonderful make-up artist Dennis Knudsen. Everybody acted so professional and serious about transvestism in dealing with trannies during the whole campaign. Full salary for modelling, hotel booking and travel cost – everything was being paid for. A professional choreograph, stylist and make-up artist at hand made the best out of our performance. You might check out Bianco Footwear to have a look on their latest collection.

Enough said! Ok, here we go. What to do and where to go in Copenhagen?
If you’ve read my former articles in Tranny Guide you might already know about my personal favourite place to go: Café Intime (wonderful old-fashioned& piano bar). 
Living in Copenhagen most of my life I know the city truly well and I’ve tried and tested most places mentioned in my list below, and gathered lots of further information with great help from my tranny friends.
I’ll concentrate my efforts supplying you with a new and updated list of addresses and contacts – including an introduction to the most popular spots in town. You’ll find it easy buying ladies’ clothes, lingerie and make-up in Copenhagen, as most places are very friendly to trannies. Denmark has a very relaxed attitude towards trannies and I’m looking forward to meeting new sisters from all over the world here in Wonderful Copenhagen, the coolest town in the world (2008) and the most liveable city (2013) both according to Monocle Magazine.
My personal list below will bring you more specific informations on Tranny Copenhagen. I really do hope that my informations would ease your way, making your visit in Tranny Copenhagen as pleasant as possible.
