Dorian Corey

Hosts Kaytlin Bailey and Wendi Starling are joined by the incomparably fabulous Ceyenne Doroshow  to unwrap the tumultuously tantalizing life of Dorian Corey. As documented in the film Paris Is Burning, Dorian was one of the queens of the NYC Ball Culture that went to the grave keeping one of her darkest secrets in the closet.

The ladies also discuss setting boundaries with partners, finding the strength to leave a bad situation AND the importance of having a surplus of baking soda (or any white white powder) within reach of your bedazzled ball gowns.
