THIS week Country Life, journal of the gentry and staple of doctors’ waiting rooms, is featuring transvestite artist Grayson Perry in its Frontispiece slot usually known as Girls in Pearls. He will be dressed as his ‘alter ego’ Claire.
The page usually shows a nubile young lady from the shires. Editor Mark Hedges said the departure ‘shows how much the world has progressed’.
The magazine’s circulation is around 40,000 a week. Will Grayson/Claire increase this figure? Discuss!
