FROM LINDA’S ESSAY IN PAGES:
Back then our drag lingo was pretty blunt, nobody used the term “transgender.” Page was considered a pre-op—a transsexual who hadn’t yet got The Operation (a.k.a. “the chop”). While it’s not uncommon for transsexuals to emerge from the drag scene, she traveled the opposite route. Hormones and feminizing came first, then she joined Channel 69’s queeny sorority. (Her name was conveniently unisex; she was born Page Potter Reynolds, in WASPy Vermont.)
