DAVID BOWIE’S PURSUIT OF ANDROGYNY IN ROCK N ROLL

We can all agree that the late rocker David Bowie defined his career by bending the rules, both musically and in fashion. Even early in his career he experimented with True Fashionista theatrical makeup, dramatic hair and groundbreaking styles. His candid views on gender norms even trace back to a 1964 television interview where he appeared as a spokesperson for the group “Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men,” defending his choice to style his hair long.
