Transgender is a movement with a history, and throughout that history its citizens have identified with many names: transvestite, drag queen, drag king, crossdresser, transsexual, shemale, sissy…the list goes on. Now it is the accepted umbrella term that covers a vast spectrum. Miss Vera students modeled deer fashions in Candythe first transversal style magazine. Cox and Ms. Mock have become eloquent transgender spokespersons.

Interviewers are being called to task. Cox put Katie Couric in her place when she was asked about her body. Janet Mock educated Piers Morganand then others. This is a good thing. But there is still a tendency by the media to compartmentalize. I was particularly concerned that with this focus on people who transition, a complex subject would be overly simplified. The segment of the transgender population that I know, the men Orange is the new black tranny want to keep a foot in both worlds, might be erased from the picture, or worse, considered perverse.

How would the experience of crossdressers in those days compare with that of crossdressers today? Would they be anything like the people who have come to me from across the country and around the world? And just how heterosexual would these men be? Certain words were considered by some to be dangerous, the operative one being offensive.

RuPaul was called transphobic because of loyalty to the word tranny. The term shemale is popular in pornography, where it describes an entire genre. Trans people talk about gender, not sex, but for trans people, just like everyone, sex is part of the story that needs to be held up to the light, not hidden away. Some might even complain that I, as a bio woman aka ciswoman aka non — transgender woman, do not have a right to opine on these issues.

Since I am the dean of the Academy, and set myself up as an authority, I see it as my duty. Besides, turning out crossdressed glamour girls, as well as transgender activists via my Orange is the new black tranny school, my earlier career in adult media as a porn star and journalist gave me unique insight into cultures once hidden underground. I had testified for freedom of expression before a committee of the Senate judiciary in Washington, D. Stu died inbut not before gifting me with even more insight into a world in which I was already considered an expert.

I had credentials. Mariette is the Margaret Mead of the transgender movement. For over 40 years, she has interviewed and photographed transgender people. Her work, which includes three books, has helped diverse communities become a movement.

She knows a wealth of modern transgender history and would be a terrific play-mate. Just prior to the date of the performance, I received a call from a freelance journalist who would be doing a radio piece about Casa Valentina. Would I like to him and some of the members of Crossdressers International CDIthe support and social group located in New York City, for an after-chat about the play to be included in his reportage?

She was granted a kind of grudging respect. Lee fought to change the laws in New York that prevented crossdressed performers from working in bars. He was an old-school performer who, when presenting in drag, always referred to himself as Mr. It was a square-foot loft filled to the rafters with transformation essentials, and everyone shopped there until Lee died in I doubt if today Lee would drop the word transvestite from the description of his store.

To put the word out in the public realm was a statement of pride. As we left the theater, Mariette and I concurred we liked the play, though I had some reservations.

The acting was terrific, and a lot of important issues, personal and political, were raised. Almost every one of my students attests to some early experiences that left lasting imprints. The next morning, I am able to more clearly define the aspects that bothered me.

So why were these characters so un-heterosexual? Where was the expression of joy in their lives as men, which I knew from my own marriage, and which for years I have seen and heard from my students, some of whom are accompanied by their wives and girlfriends? Are these men gay?

A heavy emphasis is placed on Amy kissing the newbie Miranda and that she likes to kiss boys. A discussion between the character Gloria and Valentina, about flirting with guys in bars, rings true. Male attention and admiration is considered a of success. The line that separates different sexual orientations — homo, hetero, bi — can be blurry, especially when a seeming fantasy becomes reality.

There was one moment when I thought there might be some reference to heterosex.

Are they using code words? Is the George within Valentina recognizing that his wife needs a roll in the hay?

It would have been nice. The characters in the play all seem to want to transition. Maybe they are just too good at playing women. Everyday there is news of more. It is so much fun to play dress-up. The opportunity to step out of one role and into another is often irresistible. The clothing and props, so seductive. What will I look like?

Who will I be? This is why audiences love a drag show.

Transgender people are not putting on a show. There is no script to follow and there are even arguments over the words. Do we proceed in fear and anger, or do we proceed with love and trust, grateful that humanity has so many more options? We get it: you like to have control of your own internet experience.
