    I did it once for Halloween.

    It was a bit crushing to discover I was more attractive as a woman than a man.

    I once went to a party as Hitler in drag. Some people were offended. Some people were amused. But everyone was confused.

    Not since I had to shave every day (I think I was 20). My best friend and I went as Jackie Kennedy. I wore the pink Chanel suit with pillbox hat and elbow gloves, splattered with blood and brain matter. My friend went wore the black Chanel suit and pillbox hat with the veil and big sunglasses, dragging around a little boy doll with one hand stapled to his forehead in permanent salute...

    Jail was no fun. I was in Sherrif Joe Arpaio's FAMOUS Tent City for 30 days. At least I was out for work. It sucked. Badly.

    Never have, and it seems like I never will.

    Edit: I should add that used to love doing the costume thing on Halloween, but I never dressed in drag (or as a woman in any form). I prefer the horrific or fantastic concept.

    southbeach1500 saidI never got the connection between drag and gay. So many people associate drag queens with gayness.

    For me, it's a major turnoff... and is not at all about being gay.

    It's being a transvestite... and straight, gay and bi people can be transvestites.


    Oh honey. You need to learn a bit more about queer history. Queens not only created queer community and culture, they have also been fighting the good fight since before your grandfather was in short pants.

    I've done Halloween drag a few times. First, in 1962 at age 13, was my MOTHER'S idea! Seriously!

    She dressed me as an old lady all in black, with this huge brimmed hat with veil. Had a pair of her heels, and some of the clothing was her late mother's (revenge?). I even had a lovely black beaded purse. None of my classmates at the school party could figure out who I was, partly because the heels made me taller. I finally had to raise the veil to show them, though I had on makeup, too.

    A more recent time I made the whole costume myself, also all in black. I made the dress a short cocktail style, all trimmed in black feathers I sewed on. I wore a feather-trimmed witches hat, carried a martini glass and called myself a Cocktail Witch, a different kind of contemporary ugly than the classic witch look. I won the gay club contest, later did that character on stage syncing to "Ladies Who Lunch."

    I wasn't exactly in drag, but I was the devil in a blue dress in '02 and '03 and both times it was a major hit.

    I had red body paint with devil horns protruding from each side of the outer forehead, devil contact lenses, a blue thrift-store prom dress, and black combat boots. It was awesome.

    I was talking to someone in a lengthy conversation and in mid-sentence he noticed my devil eyes and tripped out over it. That was too funny.

    I need to find pictures so that I can post them in anticipation of Halloween.

    In 2005, I came up with the idea for a group of four of us to be dressed up as shit terds. I was Bull Shit and the others were Holy Shit, Tuff Shit and Hot Shit. Needless to say, we were not only the rave of the party, but we won first place in the costume contest. As soon as we walked in, everyone was ROFLTAO.

    And finally, I'd like to predict that there will be too many little Thrillers running around this year. How creative...icon_rolleyes.gif

    Not always drag, but I love to do costumes with gimmicks, that I always make myself. One year, for a college student party, I dressed as a homeless bum, in a long Army surplus overcoat, grungy pants and shirt, a dirty face with 3-day beard growth, and knit cap. I put the unopened bottle of wine I was bringing for the party in a brown paper bag.

    After ringing the front door bell I quickly squatted down in the doorframe, all huddled over clutching my wine bottle in the paper bag. As the door opened I tipped over onto my side, falling into the hallway and making groggy sounds.

    "Oh, God, Alex, come quick!" yelled the girl who answered the door. "There's a wino out here at your door! Hurry!"

    Alex ran out with some others, everybody excitedly trying to decide what to do with me, call the police or what. Finally Alex started to get me to my feet, while I was making incoherent drunken noises and stumbling.

    Finally standing up steadily, I said in a clear, normal voice: "Happy Halloween, Alex! Here's some wine for your party!"

    Surprised shouts, groans, laughter, and cries of "It's Tom!" as they recognized my voice, if not my appearance. I was quickly brought inside, and the other guests called around to see my costume, which every new arrival had to do. But I had one more trick up my "sleeve."

    Once everyone had gathered around, and we all laughed about my dramatic entrance, I grabbed the front of my overcoat, ripped it open and flashed them all!

    My "pants" were actually just pant legs to my knees, cut off some old trousers, and held up by elastic bands. My "shirt" was likewise just the collar and partial front of an old shirt, all you needed to see under the heavy overcoat. But I was too timid to actually be nude, instead wearing skimpy Speedos. Still, made for a nice shock.

    And for the rest of the night, girls & guys alike kept coming up and asking me to give them a "private flashing" which I was glad to do. LOL!

    Plenty of straight men dress in drag for Halloween. It has nothing to do with sexuality. I went to a party a few years ago where a husband and wife were Sonny & Cher in their 70's look. They rocked it and looked awesome.

    If you're not comfortable enough with yourself to something like that for Halloween, don't try to bring me down because of your issues.

    Nope, the closest thing I've had to dressing up was putting on a Halloween costume with mask, bought at a store...

    Back in 1986 I donned an old lady's dress, knee-high panties and low heels.Topping it off was a Ronald Reagan mask. It was great.

    I have never done full out drag but there was one time when I was very drunk. I got convinced by a drag queen to put on a dress and see what i would look like. HORRIBLE! I still remember it.. turns out she just wanted to get me in my drawers so she could give me a blow job. I think thats about the climax to that night. ha.

    First time I was ever at a gay bar was Halloween night 2002. My gay friend Derek took me out to The Saint Showbar in San Antonio, TX. It was my first time ever going to a club (in the US at least since before that my only club memories were going across to Mexico pre-9-11 and getting wasted for a $10 cover charge with "Bara Libra" (Open Bar) all night long.) and a gay club at that. We walked in and all the hot guys you saw walking around... i was in gay heaven! Then as we started walking toward the dance floor they started playing "I Just Wanna Be Happy" by Gloria Estefan. I heard all the queens scream (including my friend Derek and his BF whome went as the devil and his bitch... this song was Derek's favorite song). All the Queens made their run to the dance floor dropping drinks and all this shit to make their way on to the floor... EVERYONE got out of the way as to bow down to their will to dance and put on a show. It seemed like they all danced the song insync even though they were all doing their own thing. LMAO! I couldnt stop laughing. Everytime I hear this song I always think of that night. icon_lol.gif
