I like to make my historical novels as authentically Victorian as possible. However, when it comes to the subject of dental health, I’m guilty of fudging the facts. The truth is, not everyone in the 19th century had strong white teeth. Rather the opposite. In an era with no Crest Whitestrips, no veneers, and somewhat primitive dentistry, you were more likely to encounter a hero with brown or missing teeth than one with a gleaming white smile. That’s not to say that the Victorians were ignorant of...

  For some, New York Fashion Week can be likened to a religious experience. I once overheard two women on the subway frantically whisper, “The shows are coming! Don’t you know? The shows are coming!” This cherished encounter will always be the most New York thing that’s ever happened to me. But I digress. In an industry known for embracing change and new ideas, fashion is helping lead the way when it comes to social activism. As the political climate attempts to silence the voices and basic...

I’ve been obsessed with drag for as long as I’ve known it existed. I remember watching The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert as a tween and loving it. So when I found out that one of my favorite local New Orleans performers, Vinsantos, offered a program that would teach anyone the art of drag, I was in. I enrolled in Cycle 2 of the New Orleans Drag Workshop in 2014 (Cycle 8 is about to start), along with 11 gay men and one other...

I can honestly say that I’ve never really paid attention to elbows. Certainly not as much as the Victorians seemed to do. They prized a delicately rounded female elbow—and abhorred one that was too sharp and pointy. Even gentlemen fell in for their share of elbow-shaming. According to Victorian etiquette manuals, a pointy male elbow was worse than unattractive. It could also be dangerous. As the author of The Etiquette of Love, Courtship, and Marriage (1859) relates: “I once heard of a tall, bony gentleman, who...
