It must be admitted that after our first visit to a gay-club, long ago, and seeing magnificent men-transvestites we've got an idea: if there is an art of disguising into woman - why can't be an art of disguising into man? After studying this problem in theoretical depth and questioning our foreign friends we've made sure that we don't have to "invent a bicycle": everything is already contrived. Moreover, woman-travesty is a tremendous stratum within world lesbian subculture. Marlene Dietrich, Madonna, Cher, K D Lang present only several well-known persons, far-famed by their successful disguising into man, while this art is rather advanced and claimed, especially relating to the gay-lesbian environment. So all we've had to do was coming to the lesbian parties' organizers and saying: "We don't want to look at stickled striptease, impudent trans-milksops, cracking army jokes, and boring parties; we want woman' travesty-show, handsome butches being Elvis Presley or, at least, "Take That' or "Beasty Boys". "O.K, - we've heard in response, - you can show us these artists, and we'll put a stage at their disposal!" 

Since that time we have seen many girls and women, mainly lesbians, who used male clothes rather successfully, especially relating lesbian parties or any solemn arrangements, where they did not have to pay attention to puzzled glances of those around them. Some of them are so harmonious and beautiful, so that the role of drag-kings would fit them in the best way, their photos adorning the lesbian magazines. We won't talk about transsexuality - our FtM Russian Transgender is devoted to this item; transvestism has less in common with transsexuality.
