... you can learn from:
Noxeema: When a straight man puts on a dressand gets his sexual kicks, he is a transvestite.When a man is a woman trapped in a man's bodyand has a little operation he is a Transsexual.Chi-Chi: I know that.Noxeema: When a gay man has way too much fashion sensefor one gender he is a drag queen.Vida: Thank you.Noxeema: And when a tired little Latin boyputs on a dress, he is simply a boy in a dress!
Wong Foo was released on September 8th, 1995, twenty years ago today. I was never the hugest fan of this movie (it's no Priscilla Queen of the Desert that's for sure) but from what I recall (I haven't seen it in a very long time) its heart was in the right place and there are good things in it... things like Beth Grant in an electric green feather boa, for example.
I love this movie. I loved Patrick in it. Such a butch, macho man pulling off one of the most feminine characters in the film, that's grace and talent.
Noxema Jackson! Oh, I just loved Wesley. And Chi Chi! Stockard Channing. Sheriff Dullard.
The ladies of New York, including Ru and Coco. So fabulous!
I still want to twirl when I hear that version of Girls Just Want To Have Fun.
