Boys don't cry and others
Venus Xtravaganza (May 22, 1965 ? December 21, 1988) was an American transgender performer. She came to national attention after her appearance in Jennie Livingston's 1990 documentary film Paris Is Burning, in which her life as a trans woman forms one of the film's numerous story arcs. Venus states in Paris is Burning that she began performing after leaving home ?at 13 or 14,? placing her earliest performances around 1978 or 79. Her ball career began in 1983, when Venus was invited to join the House of Xtravaganza by its founder, Hector Xtravaganza. Angie Xtravaganza, another transgender performer and the first to join Hector?s house, took on Venus as her mentee and ?drag daughter.? Venus and the house?s other ?fem queens? (ballroom lingo for transgender performers) achieved high success on New York?s competition circuit and were dubbed ?impossible beauties." At the time of filming, Venus was also an aspiring model.
