"the" Mrs. Astor

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I've stopped fighting City Hall for the weekend and going back to what I do best: chronicle and adore drag history. This is 1969 at the Fountainbleu's Miss Florida contest. Henrietta is photographed with a German boy. One night, a few months ago, a man came up to us at a bar and exclaimed, "Henrietta!" She looked at him for a second and embraced him; it was the boy, now man, in the photo. This photo reminds me that I made Mr. Astor watch the ultimate 1970's vampire movie, The Hunger; the boy above could be David Bowie.
