On the Border of Gender and Sex: Some Images

As a companion to my blog post, It's Just a Word: Transvestite, Transsexual, & Transgender, I thought I'd curate some images that I came of cross of people who found themselves on the borders of gender and sex from different historical eras.

What might we learn thinking about these folks, from the view of their own historical era. What do we learn about sex and gender? How have the ways in which we think about sex and gender changed? How have they stayed the same? What do we learn about ourselves and our own historical context?
