Tony Midnite, 1956

From the University of Washington "special collections":
Female impersonator and costume designer Tony Midnite was inducted into the Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame in 1996.

Midnite opened a costume studio in Chicago in 1953 and designed costumes for the Jewel Box Revue, the 82 Club in New York City, and numerous other performers.

[She] defied the Chicago Police Department by booking female impersonator shows in the 1950s.
