Why Men Wear Frocks

1 x 50

He’s a 43-year-old happily married man and devoted father.  He’s also the transvestite potter from Essex who won the prestigious British art award, the Turner prize. In the fine art world, Grayson Perry has two unique selling points. One is his expressive pottery and the other is Claire. His transvestite alter ego is a regular feature throughout his work.

How has Grayson Perry managed to reconcile his compulsion to wear women’s clothes with his roles as an artist, husband and father? Ultimately, Why Men Wear Frocks is about the difficulty of being a man.
