Masculinity is among Perry's enduring preoccupations. As a husband, a father, a straight male and a transvestite, he is well-placed to discuss the boundaries and intricacies of the male role. He argues that the expectations of men and boys exacted by society and the media is as much of a performance act as the traditional demands of femininity. In his recent documentary series All Man, Perry immersed himself in the über-macho worlds of banking, cage-fighting and drug-dealing.
This autumn, Perry comes to the London Palladium with his tour Typical Man in a Dress, where he'll touch on this subject, as well as his forthcoming book The Descent of Man.
Book quick. Appearances from the nation's favourite tranny-potter always sell out fast.
