so hey fun fact for anyone who wants queer history trivia: the first disco in Seattle was opened in 1973 and was a gay bar called “shelly’s leg” and it was named after a dancer named shelly who lost her leg in a confetti cannon accident and used the insurance/lawsuit settlement money to open a gay disco.
a) This is such a fantastic story that I wouldn’t care if it were made up, except that
susurrusoftime asked: I was just wondering if you'd seen the Marco Marco LA fashion show video and, if so, your opinion?
oh wow thanks for telling me about this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIh47AtGZT0
really cool fashion show featuring a lot of trans models, drag queens, and generally just a really wide range of gender and racial diversity on the catwalk. i liked the clothes, and the models were a lot more fun than just watching a bunch of near-identical thin white girls strut up and down the catwalk in a straight line.
