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.
