DUROSHOW--Jack,

Said: "Never underestimate the strength of a drag queen..." "You gotta be tough to be yourself". Jack's barter for my free legal services was his introductions to the worlds of the Cockettes/Wigstock/Beach Blanket Babylon and entree into his at-home salons. No one was quite like him and our lives were enriched by his shimmering outre presence. Jack brought hope and guidance to frightened young people with his sensible advice. He mentored by setting an example of how to live one's life without fear, with pride, dignity and absent any apology for who he was or who you are. Au Revoir, Jack. Old friends, Myrna & Freddie Gershon
