kandsk saidWoohoo! Must have been an interesting place!
I was 16 when I managed to get in for the first time. It was a riot.
The best was our resident drag queen Belle Kincaid. Urban legend has it that one night she was staggering home from Copa with her boy toy and a car with four straight guys stopped and yelled "Faggot!" and the "N" word. Belle at 6'7" and wearing size 14 heels responded with a sweet and drippy, "Why don't you boys get out of that car and say that to me to my face." The young men made the grave error of actually getting out of the car, and stories were told far and wide of he she kicked the mother fucking shit out of those boys and put a couple of them in the hospital.
She was our local anti-hero, a totally hot mess, and a person who was loyal to her community and regal to her end.
