Newsbank

The Transgender Newsbank is a collection of news and magazine articles which mention or address transgender subjects. Currently containing more than 400 articles or features, the Newsbank is intended to serve as a reference guide for transgender researchers or those just interested in browsing our history.

As most of the articles are scans of old newspapers and magazines, they are in Acrobat or JPG format, and not directly searchable. However, along with each article I have attempted to summarize the high points of each. Thus, searching for key names, places, and events with the standard site Search function should work. I have placed the highest-resolution scan of each article which I have where the text is readable. I have higher-resolution scans of each article, but as the original quality was poor in many cases, there is little gained by a higher-resolution scan. If you see something you’d like, mail transascity at gmail dot com and I’ll see if I can help you.

Note that especially in the cases of older articles, news about crossdressers and “female impersonators” is included. This is because in many cases these folks were transgender persons under another name, or living their life as a woman in the only venue where they would be mostly free from arrest or harassment – the stage.

The Newsbank is organized by year, with each year being a separate page. Click on the links below to visit each year.
