Fort Collins Courier: Denver man in women's "habiliments" disappears (1882)

Subject

masquerade, effeminacy, cross-dressing

Description

The Fort Collins Courier shares a brief from Denver about a local man that went missing. The man was known for wearing "female habiliments" (i.e. women's clothing). 

We can speculate that the man may have simply left town; however, even today, rates of violence against gender non-conforming indivdiuals are high. So we cannot rule out that this man may have disappeared under threat or faced violence.
