Show & Tell #33
Looky what I found while sorting through pics and slides to scan for the archives:
Emily Carr grad photos, circa 1996.
L to R: Ms. Linda Layne, Ms. Tzaddi Gordon, Ms. Yours Truly, Ms. Lori Seip.
This was taken just prior to climbing into a limo and heading down to Granville Island for opening night of the Grad Show.
The official graduation ceremony was held earlier that afternoon at the Vogue theatre. A bunch of us cheeky lasses decided to play fast and loose with gender. We glammed it up Hollywood maven style for the opening party in the evening, but cross-dressed as straight-white-male-ishly as we could for striding across the stage and accepting the slip of paper that represented four years of artful, and artfelt, labour.
I still have the dress – if I dug deep enough in the closet, I’d probably find the suit, too.
