Venus Xtravaganza (1965–1988). Feel sad even seeing this image.

I was watching Paris Is Burning, about ballroom subculture in 1980s New York. It’s a documentary, but moreso a fairy tale. It’s a Cinderella story about young people that just want to be beautiful for a night, while the world wants them to sleep in the ashes.
