"An international social and support group for adult    cross dressers, their partners, the spouses of married cross dressers and their families."

Tri-Ess is a not for profit IRS 501(c)(3) corporation

Please Review the Following Prior to Attending Your First Meeting or Applying for Membership

We welcome all cross dressers and their spouses, partners or family members

who are 18 years or older to our meetings.

The Sigma Epsilon guidelines are written and enforced to protect the privacy and security of all members and guests who attend our meetings. You will be required to identify yourself in order to participate in our activities; however, your true identity will be held in strict confidence and shared with no one in the group except the leadership.  You are known only by your “Femme” name. Your spouse or significant other who attends meetings may also wish to adopt a “meeting name” as well. We expect you to display the same care and respect for the privacy of other members and their guests as well.

 The purpose of our meetings is to provide support and guidance as well as to encourage participation in scheduled social activities. We offer our members the opportunity to develop and express the feminine side of their personality.  We expect our members to dress and conduct themselves as ladies, in the company of other ladies.  Sexual activity of any kind is not permitted.  If you are looking for friendship, camaraderie, guidance and support in a secure environment– you are welcome to join us.

Our Guidelines:

A. Never tell a third party the location of any meeting. If you wish to bring a guest, contact an Administrative Board member first. Only guests, who have been approved by the Administrative Board, are to be informed where and when we meet.

B. Minor children (Under the age of 18 years) are not permitted to attend our meetings or events, except when accompanied by their legal parent(s) or guardian(s) and only if prior approval has been obtained from the President of Sigma Epsilon.

C. While dressed “En Femme”, Sigma Epsilon members or guests must not use the hotel’s pool, recreational facilities or any of the hotel’s restrooms at any time, unless advised by an Administrative Board Member of special arrangements allowing such use. Our Hospitality Suite provides restroom facilities for your use.

D. Except during an Administrative Board approved event, alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the Hospitality Suite. Smoking is never allowed in the Hospitality Suite.

E. The hotel welcomes and supports us. We, in turn, must respect the rights of their other guests and management. As our hotel has many families with children as guests, we must respect their need to remain family-oriented.

F. No one is ever required to dress at any meetings. Your initial goal should be to become comfortable with the group and its support. However, when you do dress “En Femme” you must dress ladylike.

G. Our meetings must maintain a respectable atmosphere and decorum. Therefore, no obscene, erotic or sexual activities, articles, exhibits or items of this nature shall be allowed, in any form, during the meetings. Any member found to be soliciting any other member or meeting guest for sexual activity of any kind shall be subject to immediate and permanent dismissal from membership in Sigma Epsilon.

H. We meet in public places such as the hotel and restaurants. We expect members and guests to dress appropriately and act accordingly. Conservative ladylike attire is best for daytime activities and dinner/cocktail dresses are fine for dinner. Provocative, fetish, sexy or androgynous (partial male/female) attire costume is never acceptable.

I. Sunday morning “Bubba Breakfast” is strictly a “non-dressed” event. Anyone attending dressed “En Femme” will be asked to sit at a separate table and will not be allowed to participate with the non-dressed group.

J. Our meetings include a support discussion/session where topics pertaining to cross-dressing are addressed. Specifics of the discussions are strictly confidential and must remain private.

K. Never divulge to a third party the identity, telephone number, e-mail address or other information considered private to a member or a guest without the express permission of that person. If you are asked for anyone’s telephone number, take the number of the party making the request and pass it on to the member in question. Any member or guest who divulges information about another person to third party is not welcome.

L. Photographs may be taken at our meetings or events to document our chapter’s growth. However, please do not photograph anyone -- foreground or background -- without his or her prior permission. Additionally, if you do not wish to be photographed -- inform the photographer. Take special care not to photograph anyone “en drab”. Never share your photographs unless you first obtain the permission of all who are included in the picture.

M. Please immediately report any Security Guideline violations or other problems to a Sigma Epsilon Administrative Board Member. Allow them to handle any situations, which may arise concerning privacy and security issues.

We have all experienced that feeling of deep concern that our secret will be discovered and the possible harm this would cause to either our loved ones or ourselves. Your acceptance of and adherence to the above rules will assure everyone’s continued security and comfort.
