As I was in the tram going to work, in the morning, I’ve seen a transvestite. A real obvious one. I don’t personally have anything against queers or gays or any other dysfunctional minorities, I just found it… interesting. Why so? He was like 50-60 years old, very bad and pronounced make-up, ultra-red fake nails, bald and partially blonde, big-framed pink (!!!) glasses and had his hands full of kitsch-jewelries. A lame attempt to de-masculine himself.

That was in the morning.

In the evening, on the way back, same tram. This time who do I see? Another “lost brother”, this one would wear a black long cloak (just like the guy who played the Crow if you remember), and black glasses that covered half of his face. I must say that I finished work at 20h20, and outside is getting dark starting around ~19h00, yet the guy was wearing sun glasses, and black (anti UV from the fluorescent tubes in the tram – I take my lucky guess). This one was around 12-14 years old max I’d say.

The funny thing is that they both seemed quite normal, enjoying what they were doing, without too much troubling them. Not quite a sight one sees everyday
