"These informative essays trace our gay apparel from some suggestive costuming of the early 17th Century, through "out"-fits for mediated postfeminist identities, to clothing that is overt, politically affiliated and activist. Along the way are sumptuous full-color photographs of pieces from the exhibit, including an 18th Century dandy's suit, a sexually ambiguous lady's riding costume by Pierre Balmain, Jean Cocteau and Christian Bernard, a Gaultier's orange velvet dress for men with conical bosoms, and even activist drag from 1903."-Edge Edge "This is a splendid book on the only art everyone is involved with-fashion and clothing. It's superbly written and researched, and provides amazing illustrations."-OutSmart Magazine OutSmart Magazine Winner of the 2014 Milla Davenport Publication Award sponsored by the Costume Society of America. -- Milla Davenport Publication Award Costume Society of AmericaRezension:
