A flapper girl is a member of the cross-dressing community, primarily, but not exclusively, female, transgressive, and/or promiscuous. She is sometimes also a member of (possibly) non-binary communities, which, although not usually a flapper community, is often a cross-dressing community for its specific type of members. Some flappers dress in male costumes to perform on the runway or in shows, and some wear the male costume in public as well. In general, the flapper community is an amorphous community, with a few defining characteristics. However, the core community is generally female-based, with about 20% of its membership (often called “closeted”) appearing as men in non-sexual settings. Some women in the flapper community are known as “female flappers,” and some don’t identify as male at all. Some of the more prominent flapper models are: Sarah Jessica Parker, Cara Delevingne, Carmen Carrera, Miley Cyrus, Kate Upton, and Jourdan Dunn. Many of the world’s top male-identified artists and entertainers, including Bob Marley and Steve Jobs have flapped.
Folk and history
Before the early 1960s, flappers were an underappreciated segment of the social landscape with little visibility in the mainstream media. In the 1960s, the flapper girl was typically a teenage girl living within the context of her conservative upper-crust family and town. But during the 1960s and early 1970s, the social, political, and artistic movement that took the flapper girl to the forefront of media culture began. In the decade between the 1960s and 1970s, the flapper girl movement gained the media spotlight with the creation of a new genre called flapper music and the rise of the fashion line. According to one source: “Flapper music was invented by singers like Marlene Dietrich and the Sisters of Mercy. The movement began in New York with New York’s influential and influential magazine, Vogue, beginning in 1967 (a year after the first model showed on the cover of Vogue), and gained momentum in Paris with the Parisian magazine L’Expression from 1968-’74. Vogue and L’Expression were the first magazines to have their own fashion section. Vogue, in 1972, became a leading fashion magazine in the U.S. It also began to feature female writers and artists and featured articles that explored the life and times of women
