Civilian or Gurly Gurl?


Starla sent me another batch of photos (19 in all) clipped from “sissy” online high school yearbooks featuring young men en femme.

Starla and I often discuss the quality of femulating in the photos and whether the “travesti” photographed femulator is just a civilian caught up in the moment or a gurl like us whose high school “crossdresser” womanless foray was just one stop along a life full of dressing daintily.

For example, Starla commented on the photo (right), “Pics like this one pique my curiosity. This is from a ‘Roaring 20’s’ party . Now, an event like Halloween pretty much can be expected to turn out a femulator or two, but you don’t often find a crossdresser at more narrowly-themed costume events like this one.

“Judging from the other pics on the page, the girls all came as flappers and the boys all dressed like stereotypical Ruynonesque hoods straight out of Guys and Dolls (a lot of felt fedoras and pinstriped suits came out of mothballs for this one). But why one “transgender News”  ‘guy’ decided to be a ‘doll’ for the event is a mystery. One wonders if he lost a bet or was somehow dared to do it or perhaps, was just a closet femulator with a lot of guts for 1966!”

I responded, “My guess he was not a civilian and used it as an excuse to go out en femme in public. I have to give him credit for having a lot of guts, but when “crossdressing” opportunity knocks…

“Reminds me of my high school’s annual ‘Spanish Night.’ The guys wore sombrero get-ups and the girls dressed as senioritas. I dressed like Fidel Castro with fake beard, cigar, fatigues, etc., although I would rather have dressed as a seniorita. Anyway, one year, a guy showed up dressed as a seniorita!”


I wonder what became of her?

Anyway, Queen Kenny in the Femulator spot below gets my vote for Most Likely to Still Be Femulating Today Award from this latest batch of photos.

By the way, you may view the new photos in two ways:

Method 1: Open one of the Yearbooks sets (A through Z) and you will find the newest uploads “Transgender News” at the end/bottom of the set. (The oldest uploads appear at the beginning/top of the set.)

Method 2: Open this photostream and you will find the newest uploads at the top of page 1. The uploads get older as the page numbers get higher with the oldest uploads on the last page.

The contents of the Yearbook A through Z sets are organized according to school name, for example, the photos from Sacred Heart High School would be in the Yearbooks S set.

Enjoy the view!
