I have lost track of the person who was doing something with cross-dressing.
Just a reminder - don't neglect Cleopatra and Antony. I believe there were some
explanatory notes in *Domination and Defiance* by Diane Elizabeth Dreher,
(Kentucky:  The University Press, 1986).  I found it very helpful on a paper I
did on Elizabethan Women.  By the way, there were actualy cases of
cross-dressing - Lady Arabella in Violet Wilson's *Society Women of
Shakespeare's Time* (NY/London:  Kennikat Press, 1924, 1970).  Hope this helps
a bit.
