Holly Woodlawn

Posted by purplemary54 on December 7, 2015

Holly was one of Andy Warhol’s Superstars and was immortalized in the first verse of Lou Reed’s “Walk on the Wild Side.”  I can think of worse things to be remembered for.

So long, Holly.  You didn’t always get the best of things, but you were a pioneer for many trans people, and you will be missed.  (Click here for a good NY Times article about Woodlawn.)
