Holly actually only died of cancer a few weeks back.

It's interesting, because trans people were seen as "exotic" at the time. It was like having a "black friend", or a "gay friend" or something, as a way to show how "forward" one was.

Wow. I had not heard that. So she did end up in LA after all!

I think you may be right about that "fabulous friends" theory.
