I spent countless evenings at La Cage years ago dancing with my gay friends (and even saw Divine there and at Circus Circus doing stand-up, and was once mistaken for a transvestite – ???? – by a group of angry drunken rednecks outside the venue and then rescued by my gay friends, who felt no qualms about breaking off the ends of beer bottles and attacking to protect me, my only sin being that I was wearing a dress with a flannel shirt over it because it was cold out! This was back in the days when many gays were being assaulted on the streets by drunken white straight males). I wish that same happy time existed again – haven’t been there in years, and wonder what the dancing is like!
