In an interview with V magazine, actress Joanna Lumley referred to her queer icon character from Absolutely Fabulous, Patsy Stone, as “transgender.”
Joanna was talking about how the show was gay, gay, gay from the very start,
“You go back and pick through it, the amount of gay references and ease with which it’s been put into the story, without it being dragged along like a great log of plot. It’s really normal that one of [Edina’s] ex-husbands now lives with his young boyfriend. It’s completely normal that [Edina] wants Saffy [Edina’s long-suffering daughter] to be a lesbian or that Serge [Edina’s long lost son] is gay and living in New York.
It’s completely normal that Patsy is transgender.”
Is the movie going to reveal that she transitioned? Is this a plot twist!? (T/Y Tad; via Dlisted)
