Turn of the century (ca. 1905-1910) photo of some nonconformists either clowning around or expressing their real identities, and probably both. Sweet!

I actually don't understand your caption for this photo... none of these people look like trans men... maybe they are MTF cross dressers, maybe drag performers, I might even stretch to say trans women, but trans men... I don't see it

I was kind of guessing she meant trans women, and cis women, but called the trans women trans men, b/c they are bio males dressed as women...

Yeah, I think you're all right: bad heading for this one. My apologies.
