This presentation examines some criteria Professor Davis has developed to judge whether cross-dressing in 80 crossdressing vintage photos from Louise Lawrence Transgender Archive in Vallejo are an expression of transgender identity or something else entirely. Ms. Bob Davis, founder & director of the Louise Lawrence Transgender Archive, began writing about transgender history in the 1990s for transgender community publications such as Lady Like, Transgender Community News and Transgender Tapestry. She collaborated with Ardel Haefele-Thomas on the Introduction to Transgender Studies (Harrington Park Press, 2019). Ms. Bob has taught music at City College of San Francisco for over 40 years.  The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.
