Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Noxeema: When a straight man puts on a dress 
and gets his sexual kicks, he is a transvestite. 
When a man is a woman trapped in a man's body 
and has a little operation he is a Transsexual. 
Chi-Chi: I know that. 
Noxeema: When a gay man has way too much fashion sense 
for one gender he is a drag queen. 
Vida: Thank you. 
Noxeema: And when a tired little Latin boy
puts 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.
Always that.

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.
