Beginning in 1975 as an annual week-long conference in Provincetown, MA, Fantasia Fair served as a way for male crossdressers to explore the many changing facets of the crossgender lifestyle. This collection contains runs of FanFair Gazette (1991), Femme Fare (1970s-1980s), and FanFair Newsletters (1996). Generally, the newsletters were distributed each day of the fair and cover daily scheduling, information regarding future fair events and seminars, as well as short articles.
