While in London I saw a young guy wearing a back sweater and a long black skirt with it - he looked very stylish. My first instinct was to run up to him to ask if I could take his picture so that I could post it here ;D

LOL!  That's great!

Varla Jean Merman at a benefit concert--that's her own voice!  No lip synching.
I'm sure the Met won't be calling soon, but not bad for a potty-mouthed drag queen.

Not bad at all!  That was pretty good, I think.

Amazing that it's her own voice.

This thread has gone far too long without a couple more photos of beautiful Brian from Placebo.




And, a few classic YouTubes with some of his old, famous dresses.

The video quality of this one manages to make 1997 look like the dark ages, yet is still amazing.  It includes some of his classic raunchy stage antics with Stefan.

And, a more somber example, with better video/audio. "My Sweet Prince" in his famous dress designed by John Richmond.

There really is a lot of music out there featuring men in dresses... This is a YouTube of a very eccentric electronica band called IAMX that features their lead singer, Chris Corner, in a dress-like garment.  They play a lot with rock genres like glam and goth, but also really old genres like cabaret and burlesque.  This particular song is very strong on the cabaret/ burlesque side of things.

They're somewhat underground still, but very hot in certain circles.

Ernest Hemingway
Just finished reading a fascinating article "The Slow Clack-Up" by Allan Massie, in today's WSJ Review section. It was a review of the new book Hemingway's Boat by Paul Hendrickson, and discusses the author's declining years and the contrast between his younger and older writing styles as well as his younger and older attitudes about life and himself. Hemingway's youngest son, Gigi, a cross dresser, is mentioned and it is posited that Hemingway and his youngest son had much in common.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

"In this society, if a man is called a woman, that’s the biggest insult he could get. Is that because women are considered something less? I know people want me to sort of defend myself, to sit here and be like, ‘I’m a boy, but I wear makeup sometimes.’ But, you know, to me, it doesn’t really matter. I don’t really have that sort of strong gender identity — I identify as what I am.” - Andrej Pejic

And yet more from Andrej Pejic...

An ad for a push-up bra being promoted with a male model.  Epic.  :D
