11. Dorian Corey: The Corpse in the Closet

Dorian Corey was an icon in her own right. Star of Paris is Burning and house mother of the House of Corey. She embodied fierceness and she was a wise human being. She took care of the drag community, mentoring and taking in LGBTQ+ people if they needed a place to stay.

She passed away in 1993. Her good friend and fellow drag queen went to Dorian’s apartment with two guys, searching for costumes for the two. What they stumbled across was not what they expected.
