harvester of eyes, that's me

MTFtrans/Drag-queen slang, London, 1940-1970.

I'm in the process of my fic for lgbtfest; it's a story about L-O-L-A Lola from the Kinks song, from her point of view. I have my angle on it, and I'm loving it so far, but I want to know if anyone here knows good sources on the slang of the time or, ideally, any personal accounts about daily queer/trans culture in that period. (Backstory: I've decided she is much older than the naive protagonist of the song, and that she survived the Blitz as a pubescent child and decided to carpe diem after that.).

Have googled: queer history london, queer slang london 1950s, queer slang london 1960s, genderqueer london history, glbt london history 20th century.
