LET'S GO GIRLS!



"One is not born a woman,
one becomes one."
-- SIMONE DE BEAUVOIR


Erie Sisters

is a social organization of Transgendered girls based in the
northwest Pennsylvania city of Erie. Our membership is open to
Trangendered persons, spouses, and significant others. Sexual orientation and race are
non-issues for us. We are an outgoing group of transgendered girls who enjoy having fun!
Erie Sisters has members around the country, including Florida and Washington, D.C.,
but most girls hail from the Great Tri-State area of Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio.


Lake Erie Gala

Our annual November bash is one of the most unique and affordable Transgender events anywhere.


It is unique because it's the only national event that uses the community in and around Erie Pennsylvania
as its classroom and playground. We believe that getting out as a woman into the local community
in a safe and structured program does more to develop self confidence than any seminar in a classroom could
ever hope to attain.

For the ladies who are more experienced our day programs outside of the hotel are exciting, educational and distinctive.
A typical day would start mid morning with an organized tour of a point of local interest such as visiting one of the
splendid local vineyards,lunch at a fine restaurant, and another tour in the afternoon returning to the hotel
in plenty of time to rest, socialize and prepare for the evening's activity.

Evenings are special. Typically they begin about 6 with cocktails and dinner and then some professional entertainment
such as comedians, a fashion show and culminating with the Glitter Ball on Saturday when everyone can dress to the nines
in a long gown or a short sheath cocktail dress. All you have to do that evening is sparkle and be radiant.

The Erie Gala is truly affordable because all costs (except for a cash bar) for the Wednesday through Sunday day and
evening programs are included in the gala registration fee. A number of girls arrive before Wednesday to socialize and
shop with meals and lodging at their costs.

The only additional costs besides your travel expenses are for your hotel room. Single and double occupancy cost the
same so if you can find a friend to share your room your room will cost about $50 a night. You can't beat that!

Local vendors are available at very reasonable cost to advise you and with help with make up, makeovers, spa services,
nails, wigs, and of course a selection of fine fashionable clothes in a wide range of sizes. Friendly local merchants
welcome gala attendees to their businesses and are pleased to serve us.

In addition to assisting the less experienced girls, the Gala welcomes and has several programs for wives and significant others.
A large percentage of Gala attendees are partners and have learned, made friends and enjoyed the Gala.

The gala emphasizes the individual and provides personal service. The Gala and the city are ready to pamper and serve you.
Yes, the Erie Gala emphasizes fun but it is many more things. It is a truly enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
