Got the house clean yesterday and finished this before work today! After reading Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, I needed some more Lady Chablis. She “Pours the tea” and tells all about her eclectic life as a show girl and transie. She had quite the life! I loved that she added her vocab to the end, some southern recipes and a “phone book” of who‘s who.

#DancingQueen | The Lady Chablis didn‘t consider herself a drag queen, but more accurately, a transgendered night club star. She was best known for her role in John Berendt‘s book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and also played herself in the film. I haven‘t read this memoir yet, but I want to.

#Internationalwomensday I loved Lady Chablis from John Berendt's Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. "The Doll [me!] may be a heterosexual white Woman in mind, but her black body and soul belong to Miss Rosa Parks, Girl......"

booksandsympathy "Like my momma used to say.... two tears in a bucket, mother fuck it". That's my favorite quote from the movie. 3y

I did a Goodreads search of the books I have read for "candy" for today's photo prompt. This is the book that came up. Ha! If you read In the Garden of Good and Evil she was a drag performer who was one of the very flamboyant people in it. After she became known through that book, she wrote a book of her own. I was surprised to see that she died of pneumonia this year at age 59. #candycanes #12DaysofXmasPhoto

Cortg Fun Fact! Thanks for sharing! My sister has spent the last couple of summers in Savannah, so I had her read Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and she loved it. I bet she'd love this one as well. 3y
