Cartoon drawing from a Norwegian newspaper showing three separate dressing rooms: a women’s dressing room, a men’s dressing room, and “Chris's dressing room”. Text below states: “As reported, Chris Jorgensen, who was transformed from man to woman, is having great problems with her performance in Las Vegas’ famous establishment “Sahara”. The ballet women will not share a dressing room with her. And she is not permitted in the men’s dressing room. “All week alone…” Clipping also includes a satirical poem on the matter.
