Description DM2000021807:SAED:SOCIAL:JAN1959 - Oh, so this is what they call a Cape Moffie Drag. At night he sometimes gets dressed up like this, goes to parties. Take a quick glance into the dim, smoke-filled room, and it looks like just another party. Now look again. Hey that dame's got a beard stubble! Hey, all those dames are wearing wigs! Hey, they're just dolled-up men! (Photographs by Ian Berry Baileys Archives) gay life, Cape Town, Woodstock
