"A popular vaudeville performer of the 1920s and 1930s took the stage name of Barbette. He first began dressing as a woman when hired to replace a female tightrope walker. Barbette soon devised his own act, walking the high wire and performing trapeze stunts in elegant gowns, then removing his wig at the end of the show to reveal his true gender."
