I'm In Drag In Cyndi Lauper's Memoir
And there's a good reason for it.
See, I was in drag in Cyndi Lauper's video!
It was the one for her remake of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," done in 1994.
The video was directed by Cyndi herself and was populated with all sorts of drag and transsexual stars (and me, who was put into a sparkly blue dress and drop earrings), proving that she liked the drag queens way before Kinky Boots.
From left to right I see moi, Tish Gervais, Flotilla DeBarge, Chris Tanner, and Coco Peru.
And honey, we did have fun.
