I have first seen her in a cameo role in "Myra Breckinridge" and was intrigued. It must be then that I added a few of her movies to my Netflix queue. Today I watched two, and in both I loved the women she portrayed: Strong, independent, and sex-positive.
Of course I had to read up on Wikipedia about her, and was ecstatic to find out she was more than just a great performer, but also a talented writer and director, as well as a gay and transgender rights advocate.
I want to be her when I grow up.
