Hi there
Writing a story set in NYC 1931--1934. Characters gay straight bi and transgendered. I have done a lot of research but still have so many questions ! I have read that the term Bisexual wasn't used then, that it would have meant something more along the lines of "Hermaphroditic" than the current meaning. OK -- what was it called, then ? I don't even know any contemporary slang for bisexuality~ Niente !
If anyone has any info on this or bisexuality during that era, please let me know. Thank you very much !
