in the starring role.
It was Christmas 1984, just before my 12th birthday, and my whole family watched this movie together.
I felt completely betrayed when Victor gave up her life in drag to be with a man. And I only wanted to be alone with my feelings.
Afterwards, I was in a sort of daze and obsessed with this person, indeed jealous that others might get to know her as I did. I fantasized about meeting her, and what I'd say to her. Unfortunately, I was 21 before I felt comfortable enough to explain my fascination with her!
Though many others followed, she remains my first crush.
