Prince, Virginia Charles (1913-2009)  
 
page: 1  2  

In spite of her questionable viewpoints, Prince must be recognized as a pioneer whose vision and bravery enabled formerly isolated cross-dressers to make connections, locally and nationally. Her high visibility, which continued through the late 1990s, both in print and in person, made Virginia Prince a leader in the cross-dressing community for many years.

Prince died in Los Angeles on May 2, 2009.
