Historian John Wilson leads this British Sign Language tour of the exhibition Under Cover: A Secret History of Cross-Dressers
Drawn from the extensive personal archives of filmmaker and photography collector Sébastien Lifshitz, this exhibition of amateur photographs from Europe and the US explores the surprisingly widespread practice of cross-dressing, through a century of private images. Dating from 1880 onwards, the photos are mostly of unnamed and unknown figures – the majority having been collected from flea markets, garage sales, junk shops and ebay, amongst other non-specialist spaces - and offer a candid view into the hidden worlds of individuals and groups that chose to defy gender conventions.
