No idea of the date or place or people, and I'm hoping perhaps at least one of these ladies look familiar to one of Bilerico's readers. Looks like quite a frolicsome affair, possibly 1950s?

Clearly, a good time was had by all. Stana over at Femulate might know something about this.

Possibly fifties, although the backround decor seems more thirties to me. I'll have to look at some old "New Yorker" magazines I have and see how they match up. Being a costume party makes it even harder to date because there is no one single fashion that I can see.

The dress of the person in the top left is definitely 50s and the swimsuit on the person in the center front is late 40s-50s. It's sometime in the 50s.

Um... no offense meant, but these look like 'straight' guys to me. Their drag is a little schlumpy.

I agree - it seems more like "drag for a laff" than "drag for glamor."

That would have been the party to attend. It looks like it was a blast!

Straight men are so slutty! They didn't even have a clue how sexy they really were. Or, maybe they did!

Wendell, are you into that hawt n' dirty center-front row bonnet w/glasses look? ;)
