Transvestism in the News poster

Transvestism in the News is a collage of early and mid 20th century headlines gleaned from a scrapbook of the same name that was assembled by transgender activist and cultural figure Louise Lawrence. The scrapbook, along with others assembled by Lawrence, is housed at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction in Bloomington, Indiana.

The 35” x 22.9" newsprint broadside was originally commissioned as a takeaway for the fall 2015 exhibition "Bring Your Own Body: transgender between archives and aesthetics" at the Cooper Union gallery in New York City, organized by Jeanne Vaccaro with Stamatina Gregory.
