Androgyny is Sexy

by C. Margery Kempe

I’m off to the south for Leicester Comic Con and some running around in London with one of my publishers. So somewhat hastily, I offer this visual feast which most recently came from one of my Pinterest boards, though it’s an ongoing theme with me. I love drag and androgyny. I’m revising some of my fairytale shorts into novellas, including my take on Rumpelstiltskin which includes a young man pretending to be female (for complicated reasons). I’m also editing a collection for Fox Spirit Books, Drag Noir. But there’s something really sexy about gender slippage. So here’s a really striking image from the Mubi site:

Isn’t that amazing? Sigourney Weaver is gorgeous whether male or female, just like the fabulous Tilda Swinton. And that’s what I love: the slippage itself is sexy. Fey boys and boi girls — maybe it was the glam influence and then punk in the 1970s upheaval. Who can say.

Do you find androgyny sexy?
