Halloween Party? Stage show? Behind the scenes at a drag ball? Or fun and games at the senior center? Your guess is as good as mine.

Something tells me they didn't do this often if their wives were helping them.

Actually they probably did this more often with their wives helping them than you might think.

The Heterosexual cross dresser movement remarkably paralleled the development of the pre-Stonewall gay movements. There resorts, parties and conferences.

They never connected with the pre- or post- Stonewall LGB movements because of being trapped by their heterosexism.

But their leader, Virginia Prince had to fight the same battles with the postal authorities that ONE and the Mattachine Society did.

Heterosexual CDs live in a parallel universe to this day never falling under the LGBT/T alphabet out of true homophobia (fear of being seen as gay)

It's a bit hard for me to tell if the people being taken for wives are women or other men already made up, dressed and ready to go. I used to have some aunts who looked like that, including muscular arms developed by years of housework and farm chores. Illusion can be so...elusive.
