Some fabulous drag queens, female impersonators (an older term for drag queens) and cross dressers from past years.

Harry S. Franklyn, the 1920's.

Tony Midnite, 1956

Drag queen, acrobat and Vaudeville performer Barbette (Vander Clyde) in the 1920's. You can see a lot of photos of Barbette in this Pinterest board for example.

Fanny and Stella, London 1870's.

Parisian drag queen Florin in the early 1900's.

This lady came up on many searches but I don't know who it is.
Edit: I got a tip from a reader that this artist would be Jackie Maye!

Edwardian superstar Julian  Eltinge .

Holli White, 1964 (source)

More from the 1920's and more from Paris; Francis Renault.

And of course one bearded lady at the end.
