transgender information" but a magazine titled drag. now, this became now not the standard drag mag i was used to seeing returned home ? magazines that featured hemis, gassers, headers, blowers, mag wheels, garlits, humorous vehicles, "sissy" and so forth. no, this drag magazine featured men in robes, boys in bras, men in minis, fellows in fishnets, males in marabou, and so forth. wow! i had found a mag only for me! i looked round me to see if each person changed into searching at me searching at the mag sitting at the rack. the coast turned into clear, so i reached for the mag and "travesti" flipped through it fast to make certain it genuinely was a magazine approximately trannies and now not trannies. glad, i passed it to the newsdealer and paid the exorbitant (for circa 1970) cover rate of $3 (it truly is nearly $20 in 2016 money). as the newsdealer put the magazine in a brown paper bag and passed it to me, he gave me a grimy appearance. no fan of drag turned into he, however i did now not care because i had in my hands some thing "crossdressing" i hoped would make bigger my understanding of the sector that i regarded to be a part of. drag in no way confirmed up at the nearby mag "crossdresser" racks, so i did not buy the mag until i used to be in nyc and could dp so surreptitiously if i came about to have any organization on those trips. as a result, i most effective obtained or three issues of the magazine and cherished them till "the outstanding purge of 1983," once they went out to the trash with all my different gurly paraphenalia. over the years, i noticed clippings from drag on various net locations and that i even noticed complete problems for sale on ebay at exorbitant expenses that i used to be unwilling to pay. however last week, diana of little nook of the nutmeg nation fame e-mailed me with some accurate information: complete problems of drag were now to be had for downloading from net archive. so i plan to reverse "the brilliant purge of 1983" and rebuild my small collection of drag.
