Most Mental Health Trusts may have departments that deal with gender identity concerns, either talk to your GP, or see if you can access them via IAPTS.
There are many levels to this, from transvestism, through transexualism, to gender dysphoria.
If you feel you'd like to become female ask for a referral to a Gender Identity Clinic, or Google GIC.
There are many trans support groups who have members ranging across the spectrum, perhaps Google and visit them.

Good luck.

It is hard to say what you are going off this post, but you could be a straight transvestite, who likes to feel close to women so plays at being one but is only attracted to women, which is fine as long as you aren't literally against LGTB people, or you are a transgender female who is a lesbian. Alternatively you could be non-binary or a different gender.

Anyway, there is nothing to be ashamed of and these very normal and common issues but you should see a specialist for more help.

I agree with deb, think your still finding out who you are, be comfortable though as who you are, even if you don’t prescribe to the norms.

My problem is it is not like that I like men. I like women only. The situation can be best explained in terms of blue films. I hate watching male female film. I like photos of lone female. I hate gay films. I love the most lesbian films. However being a male it is impossible for me to be a lesbian.

Further, I always like to dress as a female. I like to wear female clothes, female make up and so on. I have subscribed to female erotic magazines. To satisfy myself I pretend online in some social networking sites as female and chat in ladies peer groups. I don't like to chat in gents peer group.

So exactly what I am?
