Frankie is my Daddy

Frank-n-Furter changed my life. I rented this movie in 1990 and I was just amazed by Tim Curry's performance. Frankie was aggressive, dangerous, sexy, and pure diva. And his singing voice was so alluring and unique, that I almost took singing lessons. It was something in his character that spoke to me. I don't know if it was his make-up or his Hellfire Club get-up that brought me in.

I think when I was struggling with my sexuality, Dr. Frankie provided a sense of hope. People adored this character and he was an icon in the cult classic world. So I thought if he's accepted, hopefully I will be too.

Since then there's been copies of the Doctor of Drag, but none will ever be as great as the Sweet Transvestite.
