Profiles "Mean Girls of Morehouse"

Vibe magazine delivers a provocative article about the Plastics, a group of men who dress as women at the prestigious Morehouse College in Georgia.

The group is believed to have prompted the controversial dress code announced by leaders at the African-American college last fall, according to Vibe.

"In October of last year, the Morehouse College administration announced a new 'appropriate attire policy.' The dress code stated that students, referred to as 'Renaissance Men,' were not allowed to wear caps, do-rags, sunglasses or sagging pants on the Morehouse campus or at college-sponsored events. But what raised most eyebrows was the rule about women's clothing: no wearing of dresses, tops, tunics, purses or pumps."

Vibe talks with members of the Plastics, including Diamond Martin Poulin, about subjects including their identity, style, and rocky relationship with the broader gay community at Morehouse.
