“As far as I’m concerned, being any gender is a drag.” Patti Smith
It used to be that what made a boy a boy and a girl a girl in terms of dressing was clearly defined. Luckily for us, that is no longer the case. I say luckily because having to conform to socially constructed notions of dressing is boring. And variety is the spice of life, no? These days, women dressing as men and men dressing as women is no big deal (or at least, not as big a deal as it used to be) as the lines between genders blur more and more.
There are all kinds of things concerning gender that one could say about Vancouver-based Hana Pesut’s ongoing “Switcheroo” project. But I won’t bore you with all that. Think what you will about them. Mostly these photographs are just hilarious. What is particularly interesting about them is how comfortable the couples look. Perhaps there is a cross-dresser in all of us, just waiting to be set free?
You can get the full deal and more on Ms. Pesut’s website. Check it out–you won’t be disappointed. In the meantime, here are a few of my personal favorites.
