The Gay Megillah

A trannie pop star sets Tel Aviv on fire

But Dana was determined, and, more important, talented and heartwarming. She has become such an icon in Israel that even ultra-Orthodox Knesset members no longer attack her (since she's popular even among some of their voters). It is difficult to explain to strangers why Dana is such great fun. But if you write to your congressman, she may get an American recording contract and show the Jerry Falwells that an Israeli trannie can be more than a woman— or at least more than a woman to me.

Gal Uchovsky is an openly gay Israeli talk show host and journalist living in Tel Aviv with his spouse, filmmaker Eytan Fox("Florentine").
