What’s the best way to handle If you book a TFP are TFCD shoot with a female model and after you have done the shoot you start suspecting that your female model may actually be a man during the post processing of the images, I have nothing against the gay community but at the same time I don’t want to be misled are lied too and if that’s the case I don’t want to use the images, any ideas are suggestions please while I’m still processing the images?

First thought was "wow hope it wasn't a nude shoot".

Second, I think it'd be worthy of reporting, models shouldnt lie on their profile. But it may be worth asking him/ her outright before you do.

As SD states if you are concerned ask the model. It could be that:-

a) you are mistaken and they are female

b) they are transgender (either pre or post op) and therefore consider themself female.

That's certainly a strange one....as above you need to establish the facts of the situation. The problem is that there are all sorts of possibilities, they could be post op and officially female for example.
One other thing to note, should it be an example of a transgender individual i.e a man dressing as a woman, there really isn't any grounds for assigning sexual orientation, as there's every chance that they could be heterosexual, but choose to dress as the opposite sex simply because that's how they feel more comfortable.

You agreed to a TF** therefore I think that you are obliged to supply the images to the model, otherwise the model would be perfectly within their rights to leave negative feedback for you.
If you choose not to use the images yourself then that is your choice.

You were obviously OK with the model during the shoot and saw /heard anything to question their gender.
Let it go.

Mind you, if they are female, boy that's going to a conversation to end conversations.

You'll find that transgender's much more complicated than just wearing clothes they feel to be more comfortable.

The clothing thing would be more transvestism than anything.

I don't think anybody should ever delete anything. You never know if the model in question is going to hit the big time, shag a famous footballer/footballer's wife, or be involved in some other news worthy event. Then suddenly your images may have some value.

Never delete.

Firstly, unless the model hit on you I don't see what the "gay community" has to do with this at all.

Secondly, they turned up and did their job apparently to your satisfaction during the shoot, I don't see why there is anything you should do, if you don't like them don't use them and get on with your life, but you still have to pay the model since they did their job.

Whilst I appreciate that it's a much more complicated subject than I made it out to be, my point was an address to the OP's association of dressing up as a woman with the 'gay community'
