Cory George who is dressing up as a woman for charity

THIS month's no make-up selfies are a bit too tame as far as Cory George is concerned.

He has gone several steps further and pledged to dress as a woman for the whole month of April — and he seems to be quite enjoying it.

The 23-year-old, from Sketty Park, is on board the Cancer Research fundraising push, sporting a range of colourful looks, thanks to a big bag of clothes from his mother-in-law and thanks to his girlfriend's skill as a make up artist.

Cory said: "When I saw the selfies I just wanted to do something a bit different for the cancer charity, so I decided to dress up as a woman for the month. I have been out and about in the Uplands and in Sketty Park and Trallwn, so people can see what I'm doing. And a man winked at me in a coffee shop the other day. Then I opened my mouth and he was a bit taken aback. I have been to the Jobcentre too and I'm not sure they knew what to make of me.

"I am trying to be a convincing woman so my girlfriend is doing my makeup and I'm putting thought into what I wear. I'm in a maxi dress at the moment."

If nothing else, the experience has given him a little empathy with the ladies in Cory's life.

"The heels. Yes, I do have some sympathy for women who wear them. I have almost broken my ankle three times. And I find handbags very difficult. You can never find anything in them can you? But I have learned that lip liner makes very good eye shadow if you run out, and that mascara sorts out your eyebrows nicely."

Cory is hoping to raise £2,000 for Cancer Research.

    Nothing special - most towns and villages have a man dressed as a woman all the time.
