A celebration of gender outside the binary.

Female Impersonators in Bronzeville, c. 1935
Even in the roaring 1920s, this African American neighborhood was friendly to gay men, lesbians, and gender-crossing folk. Bronzeville drew well-known African American performers such as Ma Rainey and Tony Jackson, who serenaded their audiences with songs like Sissy Man, Pretty Baby, Fairey Blues and Bull Dagger Woman.

Hello, my name is Yvonne, I’m a college-aged cis-female who has a love for photography, and I have hirsutism. Basically, I grow thick hair where normally only males grow such hair, which includes my face. It’s made me feel insecure and “man-ish” for a lot of my life, so I took on this project. I did this to explore what the widely-accepted gender ideals are and how I might fit in them, mostly, so I can accept that I don’t.

Special thanks to my friends Katrinna and Akashia for helping me with this project.
