Transvestite Bridal Shower - What do you think

Edward Horn , May 25, 2008; 03:19 p.m.

OK, this is one for the records. I was asked to shoot a transvestite Bridal-Shower/Bachelor -Party/Whatever-the-Hell-it-Was. I kid you not.

I'm still not sure what happened, but it was certainly interesting.

After the initial shock when I got there my wedding photographer instincts took over. Eventually I switched over to art-photographer mode. See what you think.

Love is better than war. Everyone has the right to be happy, free, safe, protected by the law, and loved by someone. I wouldn't mock the hand that feeds you.

I mock it not. It WAS very interesting. And I think I was very sensitive in the photographs.

"It's rainin' men...in drag!"

Looks like all the guys had a great time! Not sure how tractors and flintlocks fit in with a drag show like this, but it sure makes for some unusual images.

Nice photography, Ed!

I think you did a great job at taking your subjects seriously, it was just the "Whatever the hell it was" comment that caught my attention. I appreciate that you're open-minded enough to do it in the first place. A lot of photogs wouldn't be.

A mixture of grown men, women's lingerie, tractors, guns, beauty supplies, an open field and a photographer.

Michael, I gotta say, I don't know what the hell that is myself, other than a VERY unusual shooting assignment! Nothing wrong with it, but very unusual.

And now for something completely different. Why don't I even get fun asignments like this? Great job.
