The ballet is no place for clumsy transgendered men

Feb 8, 2016 by

By Kathy Gyngell, The Conservative Woman: Fat ballet dancers used to be the stuff of jokes and music hall slapstick. Chaps performing Swan Lake used to be guaranteed to make us laugh. So did men dressed up as women. That was until Matthew Bourne’s male Swan Lake came along in a two fingers up gesture to tradition. Now the done thing is to take men in tutus very seriously indeed.

It’s dangerous and wrong to tell all children they’re ‘gender fluid’
