At the turn of the Millenium, I had hair down to my ass, and I would style it different for every rave. Sometimes my whole head would be braded, or I’d tie it up into a bunch of little buns. Sounds girly, I know, but back then, the rave scene was very sexually ambiguous. The girls washroom would always become a big hangout at events with no chill room. It was a place where you could get away from the booming music and chat with people. When the warehouse scene collapsed, and raves moved into clubs, the venue security started kicking guys out of the girls washroom, which promptly ended its reign as a popular mingling spot. I remember one night, I managed to continually dodge security by simply turning my back to them. They would see the long hair and assume I was a girl. I guess ambiguity can have its advantages… although that’s an odd example, and I’d be pressed to think of another one.
