Cross Dressing now legal in Oakland California

After more than 130 years of being banned, it is now legal to cross-dress in Oakland, California (USA).

City Council member Rebecca Kaplan proposed a repeal of the century-old law saying such laws are frequently used to oppress the GLBTI community.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to remove the ban. A second vote is necessary to complete the repeal process. That vote is set for May 18.

The law, adopted in 1879, bans people from dressing “in the attire of a person of the opposite sex,” the Associated Press reported.

Officials said the law was never enforced.
