Saturday Night Tranny

So, how is this for circular logic? "Hairspray" started as a indie cult film by John Waters starring gender-bending drag diva Divine as big mamma Edna Turnblad. It became a Tony-winning Broadway musical starring out actor Harvey Fierstein in the wig and house dress. And now the movie-turned musical is being remade into a mainstream movie starring non-gay (but much rumored about) star John Travolta. As is sadly often the case, the closer the project gets to Hollywood, the less overtly gay it gets. Plus, whoever decided the world wanted to see Travolta in drag should be fired. Seriously. That photo has put me right off lunch.
