Can You Even Play This Song Any More?

Over the weekend, we went to see Wynton Marsalis in concert. It was fabulous. He had a 15-piece swing / jazz band and they played classic music from the likes of Duke Ellington and Count Basie. Before the concert started, we spotted a transvestite in the audience, decked out in a long, black evening gown and white opera gloves. All I could think of was this chestnut from the 1980s.

Are you still allowed to play this on the radio?

Explanation necessary in the year 2014: I thought the dude was kind of elegant. He had it all working and his accessories worked well with the gown. His hair was on the medium-short side, but it was well-coiffed. It was unusual enough to remark upon, but it was all one to me whether he decided to wear women's clothing or not.

It came with straps (I'm assuming they need to be sewn onto the dress) that are spaghetti straps and a shawl, all of which are the same color as the dress.
