Classic Female Impersonation
"Back in the day" Finocchio's opened in 1936 as a mecca of classic female impersonation in San Francisco. I can't even pretend to say the 30's were a simpler time for anyone in the transgender culture. The word hadn't even been invented yet. In the midst of all of this Finocchio's managed to stay in existence until 1999. Pictured on the right is performer Bobby Jonson circa 1943. For more history on the club, go here .
