From Emily Colucci’s review of Pages for Filthy Dreams:

Highlighting her transgender identity through her fashionable clothes or lack of them, Pages reveals Page’s unwavering, in-your-face attitude about her gender identity and performance in an early period of gender nonconformity. As Simpson remembers, “Back then our drag lingo was pretty blunt, nobody used the term ‘transgender.’ Page was considered a pre-op–a transsexual who hadn’t yet got The Operation (a.k.a. the chop).” Not only was Page’s everyday gender performance radical and revolutionary, her performances also transcended the boundaries of gender and even good taste, a line-crossing we, here at Filthy Dreams, adore over pretty much everything else.
