Over the nearly 10 years it’s been appearing there have been hundreds of real stories, all incredible in their own way, but this one really stood out. According to Tanqueray (her stripper name) she was thrown out of her house when she was 17 years old for getting pregnant. But she studied fashion at FIT, and made a career designing costumes for adult movie stars and strippers and frequented the NYC drag scene.
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for our girl and even Jennifer Garner suggested that HONY and Tanqueray’s story should become a Netflix series. You know someone is pitching it right now.
Read for yourself.
