F. Scott Fitzgerald In Drag Is Delightful

Long before there was Kanye in a kilt, there was The Great Gatsby novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald turned out in drag. 

The images are from publiclity photos for a 1916 school musical The Evil Eye! which Fitzy co-wrote for the Princeton Triangle Club while at Princeton.  

  1. Even though a photo of him in drag appeared in the New York Times for promotion, Fitzgerald wasn’t allowed by the university to actually perform in the show due to his poor academic performance, Open Culture explained (and they posted the full-size images in all their glory). 
  • What a shame. The Times called him the "most beautiful girl" in the show. Don’t you agree?
