Follow me on Instagram for more men.
I would characterize this gentleman, without knowing how he would characterize himself, as a crossdresser; I see him from time to time in my neighborhood, always sporting sheer, revealing (but in a what?-I-had-no-idea-officer! way) women's clothing without makeup or any other nods to femininity.
This day, the wind caught his flowing blue scarf (which was completely see-through, but which doesn't register in the image) at this moment and it just looked so interesting against the food court, I snapped. It has a luxurious feel to it even now.
As you may or may not have heard, Facebook is cracking down on drag queens and other performers not using their legal names on their accounts. As James St. James—sorry, James Clark—points out, this is absurd:
“Fucking Facebook. Shutting down my account until I change my name back to James Clark. Fucking ridiculous. Are they doing this to Lady Gaga or Whoopi Goldberg or whoever? And what if I identified as Jane Clark? Would they force me to post as a gender I didn't identify as? Who else is experiencing this and what can you do?”
It's discriminatory and insulting and it's a policy that should change. By all means, make someone submit their legal name when signing up, but why shouldn't we be able to use stage names or nicknames to identify ourselves publicly?
