I have a trans themed bow tie (it's just colored like the trans flag) that I wear from time to time. Most people don't comment on it, but if they do I get one of two reactions: way off the mark (literally had a guy compliment me on the summer colors?) or a knowing comment without outing me to the world (thank you Target employee).
Lastly, we end not on a webpage, but on a publication of the Transgender Tapestry magazine. Please note how the woman looks almost surprised that she is getting her photo taken. Or maybe that she was alive during the heyday of the internet.
On a totally separate note, my brother and I used the tapestry as a replacement for the word gay when we were in our early teens. No idea why.
That can only be followed up by another homepage, this time by Susan's Place Transgender Resources. Please note the minimal design, all links located in an upper blue box. The box draws your eyes because there is a super sexy pinup lady on it, which definitely wasn't clipped out of something else.
Hello, I have found an article that is somewhat interesting and makes me wish I knew what was going to happen in my life back when I was in my teens:
"An Oral History of the Early Trans Internet" by Henry Giardina
But please, allow me to draw your attention to some choice images they used. Strap on your helmets, we're going for a trip down memory lane.
Make me look like this you cowards!
