    [Chicago Slices raw: Female Impersonator]

    Female impersonator John “Jyneen” Simms. Simms leads a dual life as a construction worker and as a stripper. He is male, but has artificial breast implants and dresses up as a woman for private parties. “It started out as a joke about five years ago and now I spend more time with a dress on than pants. I do all private parties. I’m not gay, believe it or not. This is business and that’s how I attack it, strictly business and it’s not really a lifestyle. If I’m out working, I’m not really running around with a dress on. Although sometimes it’s easier…I could almost be a real life Tootsie, although I think I carried it a little further with the boob job…I’m a guy. The bottom plumbing works, but I make my living wearing a dress.”
