    As a transgender woman who began her transition about a year ago, Kylie Jack is still figuring out her fashion style, but she wanted one thing right away: well-fitting bras. Friends recommended Petticoat Fair in Austin, Texas, where she lives. The lingerie shop is known for one-on-one fittings, but Jack was denied access to the area where professionals work privately with customers after being asked if she was an anatomical female. […] A gender binary exists in fashion, and that’s a challenge for those who don’t conform. Masculine-presenting women are often destined for boys’ departments or bad fits, while people...

    Russia Today ^ | 14 May 2014
    Nantes education authorities have launched a 'Lift the Skirt' campaign to support gender equality. Under the campaign, male students and teachers of 27 public schools are invited to wear skirts on May 16, sparking controversy in the western French city. The idea to swap trousers for skirts in a stand against sexism originated from pupils themselves, and was sanctioned by the city's school authorities and therefore by the Ministry of Education, the Local reported. Those who prefer not to bare their legs have the option of wearing a sticker which says, “I am fighting against sexism, are you?” Although the...

    It's the last bastion of women's outerwear that hasn't been appropriated by the more fashionable men out there - until now. High heels are, apparently, de rigueur for men. To the possible chagrin of some more traditional males, those with a fashionable eye and an eccentric sensibility are taking the women's power dressing weapon of choice and making it their own.

    More than a dozen male employees working for the Roslagsbanan train services in the Swedish capital have been wearing skirts in order to keep cool. One of the drivers, Martin Åkersten, explained that temperatures can hit 95F (35C) in the train cab during the summer. Uniform regulations by the train company Arriva state that skirts or long trousers are acceptable. At a meeting last year, drivers were told that shorts were not allowed. They have given their blessing to the men wearing skirts however. "To say anything else would be discrimination," Thomas Hedenius, the communications head, told the local Mitti...

    Last Friday’s cross-dressing day at a Milwaukee elementary school proved contentious. The school-sponsored event was one of the theme days during school spirit week at Tippecanoe School for the Arts and Humanities. While the themes for each of the other days were sufficiently milquetoast, Gender Bender Day — as it was originally named — raised a few parental eyebrows. Members of the school’s student council chose the transvestite theme, reports WITI-TV. The idea was straightforward: boys were encouraged to dress like girls and girls were encouraged to dress like boys. Deidri Hernandez, the mother a second-grader at Tippecanoe, found out...

At least that’s the theory over at the Hub, the network co-owned by Discovery and Hasbro, which is trotting out its latest soon-to-be-dud, SheZow. That show follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy named Guy who uses a magic ring to transform himself into a crime-fighting girl. Yes, you read that correctly. When Guy says the magic words – “You go girl!” – he becomes SheZow, wearing a purple skirt and cape, as well as pink gloves and white boots. The chief executive of the...

The claims come from Ellen Pierson, who married Kris's ex-husband Robert shortly before his death in 2003. Pierson claims Bruce's first wife Chrystie Crownover - who he was married to for eight years between 1972 abnd 1980 - made the revelation to her over drinks.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( http://bit.ly/tADEfV) that meant no girls dressed as Harry Potter or boys as Lady Liberty at the party in Sandy. Raquel Smith says she was "appalled" when she read the flier taped to her door. She is not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The flier urged children to "wear costumes" but noted, "please no masks or cross-gender dressing." Smith calls it...

AB 887, which passed through the state's Assembly on May 16, is causing a stir among critics who feel it's raising the identity of a transgender individual to the same level as one's ethnicity or gender.

    In times past, if a person exhibited persistent delusions, doctors and scientists would try to cure the person of their delusions. A person who saw themselves as an animal or a different gender or a different person needed to be cured of their delusions and made to accept reality: that a human is not really a rabbit, that a boy is not really a girl, and that Joe Smith down the street is not really the president of the United States. In our more tolerant, enlightened world though, we choose to indulge delusions. After all, who are we to tell...

The men were not represented in court and said nothing in their defence, some hid their faces from the hundreds of people who watched as they were lashed.

Thomas Parkin, 49, was charged Wednesday in the plot to impersonate his deceased mother so he could collect $117,000 in government benefits. He and the man accused of being his accomplice, Mhilton Rimolo, pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, criminal impersonation and other charges. Both men were ordered held on $1 million bail.

    There’s no good way to say this, but some men like wearing pantyhose. I don’t mean in a cross-dressing, “Just call me Phyllis,” sense, but in a normal, “Well, it feels nice and boxers can be so bulky,” kind of way. The truth is that “mantyhose”, featuring a special “male comfort panel”, caught my attention some time ago, but I kept it to myself. No point burdening all of you with a mental image that could put you off your meat and two veg. But I now see this was futile. The trend for straight men to invade female...

    PARIS (AFP) — The notion of wardrobe androgyny was the fitting theme of Yves Saint-Laurent's men's collection, the house that kicked off the just-ended Paris men's shows where men's fashion won a feminine touch. At YSL, designer Stefano Pilati used quotations from Plato to explain why he combined female detailing with a masculine silhouette...

    Gender San Francisco Style by: Deborah Lambert, January 29, 2008 A San Francisco area middle school recently cancelled a “gender-switch” day in response to complaints from parents. A Catholic news agency report noted that “Adams Middle School in Brentwood encouraged students to cross-dress – boys wearing girls clothing, girls wearing boys’ clothing – on the last day of ‘Spirit Week.’” According to the Pacific Justice Institute, parents were given little notice of the event, “and only found out after flyers were posted at the school.” When parents notified the school that they would keep their children home if the event...

    JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- A Baptist minister has been charged in Tennessee with indecent exposure and driving under the influence. Police said 58-year-old Tommy Tester of Bristol, Va., was wearing a skirt when he was arrested last week after allegedly relieving himself in front of children at a car wash. A report also accuses Tester of offering police officers oral sex and says an open bottle of vodka and empty oxycodone prescription bottle was found in his car when Tester was arrested Friday. Authorities identified Tester as the minister of Gospel Baptist Church in Bristol and an employee of Christian...

    One of France's leading hosiery makers is launching a new line for men next month -- pantyhose with a welcome front opening and big feet, available in thick mannish knit but also as sheer tights. Gerbe, which is based in eastern France, said this week that the country's first hosiery line for men would go on sale in March "due to increasing demand from male clients." The pantyhose comes with a larger belt than for women as well as an opening, with "Men opaque", "sheer" or "satin" available in four models of tights, with and without feet, and three models...

    Now I know there are many out there who will think I have lost it when I write that a key, new must-have for men this coming fall will be a pair of leggings to be worn outside, not just in, the house, but that was the big message at the debut Marni men's runway show this morning in Milan. Leggings made of microfiber cotton and wool, shown in violet, forest green and Milan fog gray, all of them with stirrup straps, except of course for a couple of them cut above the knee, accompanied half the looks in this...

    OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 1 — Until recently, many children who did not conform to gender norms in their clothing or behavior and identified intensely with the opposite sex were steered to psychoanalysis or behavior modification. But as advocates gain ground for what they call gender-identity rights, evidenced most recently by New York City’s decision to let people alter the sex listed on their birth certificates, a major change is taking place among schools and families. Children as young as 5 who display predispositions to dress like the opposite sex are being supported by a growing number of young parents, educators...

    TOUTED as a celebration of sport, culture and national unity, the Ethnic Minority Games in southwestern China descended into a farce of cross-dressing cheating and mob violence, state media reported. Athletes representing China's 55 ethnic minorities assembled in Yunnan province last week to compete in blow-pipe darts, horse-riding events and other traditional sports. But blind pursuit of victory lead to some unorthodox tactics, Xinhua news agency reported. Results of the women's dragon-boat racing were reviewed after athletes complained of "big women with Adam's apples", Xinhua said. Referees subsequently found that several of the competitors were men wearing wigs.

But when Kevin Logan, a transgender and gay student at Gary’s West Side High School, arrived last Friday at Avalon Manor in Hobart for his prom, he was banned by Principal Diane Rouse....

    DISGUISED as a woman, smuggled across borders by train, plane and speedboat - the flight of a Nigerian state governor charged with money-laundering in Britain is fast becoming the stuff of legend in his home country. Diepreye Alamieyeseigha earned the title of "Master of Deception" in today's issue of the This Day newspaper, which published a digital photo-montage of him in a red dress, sparkling necklace, red woman's head-dress and lipstick. The governor of Bayelsa state was facing trial in London for laundering STG1.8 million ($4.21 million). But in Nigeria he enjoys immunity from prosecution and when he returned home...
