Cross dressing in Australia

Book cover: Parting with my sex: cross-dressing, inversion and sexuality in Australian cultural life In this original and unusual work, Lucy Chesser explores the persistent recurrence of cross-dressing and gender inversion within Australian cultural life, including Aboriginal-European relations, convict societies, the gold rushes, bushranging, the 1890s, nationalist fiction, and World War One.

Parting with my sex compares and contrasts sustained life-long impersonations where women lived, worked and sometimes married as men, with other forms of cross-dressing such as public masquerades, cross-dressing on the stage, and men who sought sexual encounters while disguised as women.
