“Oh my god we have to talk!” Christine Ebersole, star of Broadway-bound Grey Gardens, wrote in an email to her friend Ray, posted on his website, The Bent Post. “My float was saved by two seven-feet tall queens in raccoon drag.” She’s talking about her participation in New York’s gay-pride parade. “The float left without us and we were all running down Fifth Ave, me in my girdle, fishnets, leopard skin swimsuit, and my nun’s habit, holding two loaves of wonderbread, with these seven feet raccoon gals in nine-inch patent leather fur clad platform boots behind me, running with two-by-four foot Styrofoam wonderbread slices under their arms… running right past St Patrick’s cathedral, trying to catch the float that was four blocks down the road. A moment I will NEVER forget. I will have photos shortly.” We’re so envious of Ray.
