A number of films and books have celebrated this identity.
From Latin, literally translates as "crossdresser;" a clinical term which some feel has a pejorative connotation. Refers to those who get erotic (fetishistic) or emotional pleasure from occasionally wearing clothes of the opposite sex and feel compelled to do so.

There are various types of Drag; the most sophisticated and political variety is associated with Queer Theory.
