More Males in Female Finery

Thanks to Aunty Marlena, here is a link to hundreds of images from The Fool's Paradise Drag Party (1996-2010). The quality of the Drag Party femulations is all over the map, but there are many gems (see photo for example). Also, check out the Drag Party's website, where most of the images are probably duplicated, but navigating them is different.

Yearbook Femulations Updated

Thanks to Starla, our intrepid yearbook search lady, I uploaded 48 new images to the Yearbook Femulations on flickr.

Femulate Interruptions

This male will be wearing female finery through the weekend as I began my trip to the Hamvention in Dayton, Ohio.

Wednesday, I plan to drive about two-thirds of the way or 8 hours, whichever comes first and stay overnight somewhere near the Ohio-Pennsylvania-West Virginia border.

Thursday, I plan to drive the remainder of the trip.

Thursday evening, I will attend my group's board of director's dinner and meeting.

Friday and Saturday, I will be at the Hamvention throughout the day.

Friday evening, I will attend my group's annual banquet. Saturday evening, I have a few options and have not made up my mind what to do yet.

Sunday, I drive home.

I will try to keep you up-to-date with short posts throughout my trip. All the gory details will follow after I get home and regroup.

  1. Interesting picture of Hand Lehari. Circa 1930, in Germany... I wonder how long the poor sod lasted?

    There's too much intolerance. It comes from the right and from those blasted transsexual separatists, all of them with their infernal and arrogant superiority. While those right wing bigots can't help themselves, I do wonder about the pompous transsexual separatists and their presumptuous supporters. Would they lead Hans into the chamber? If not - why the hate? Why the arrogance?

    Sorry, Stana. The picture just made me think of those hate-filled fools.

  3. Stana, Kudos to Marlena and you once again on finding the Fire Island site. You are spot on with your observation on the varying degrees of femulation. However, there is one constant.
    Everyone is smiling !
    This is the result of people coming together with a common interest and a willingness to go with the flow. I'm impressed by some of the presentations but happy for all. Thanks again for sharing these with your loyal members and ave a great time at your convention. Please share pics of your adventure

  5. Stana,
    It seems that everyone on Fire Island was having fun. Amazing that the weather seemed good ~ year after year. I noted that the invitation provides that dressing in drag is mandatory. Normally I am not a big fan of dress codes but for this event I can make an exception.

    The comments about the photo of Hans Lehari that took a gratuitous swipe at 'right wing bigots' seemed a bit unwarranted. The German National Socialist Party was about as far left as you can get on the political spectrum. The Hitler regime was an example of a charasmatic leader with the ability to give powerful speeches to support the creation of a big government that exercised control over its people.

    I find it sad that some people need to use every opportunity to show their own lack of tolerance as they rail against the supposed intolerance of others. I say live and let live and lets try to stay free and maintain our liberty without demeaning others.

    Pat
