Rest In Power, Holly Woodlawn

The world tonight lost a legend.

Holly Woodlawn brought trans visibility at the forefront before it was comfortable, freeing, and embraced to do so. She's not only a trans heroine and icon, but she'll forever be a superstar.

"Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She said, hey babe, take a walk on the wild side,
Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side."

Rest in Power, Holly.

It is the end of an era. Holly, Candy, and Jackie. Rest in Power to you all.
