description

Remember Wayne County and the Electric Chairs? Long before drag queens dominated the media, before gender-bending, before punk, even before Stonewall, there was Jayne County. From the 60s to the 90s she was the craziest, the most extreme queen ever to hit a rock 'n' roll stage. She's known and worked with Warhol, Bowie, and Derek Jarman, been an actress, a singer and a prostitute. She's the world's original rock 'n' roll trans star, crossing the genders in the full glare of publicity. Man Enough to Be a Woman is the wild, hilarious, and shameless account of Jayne's life from her cissy-boy childhood in Georgia to her 90s renaissance, as a new wave of superstars claim her as their inspiration.
