Welcome: Counter Culture Diva: Dolores Deluce to Chat Time with Fran Lewis: Dolores DeLuce, a five-foot Diva in six-inch heels, takes us on a bumpy ride from her gray days in New Jersey through her escape to the tumultuous post-Stonewall days of ‘70’s Los Angeles and gay San Francisco. When her Italian American family rejects her after the birth of her mixed-race daughter, she creates a new family with the most unlikely people under the most unusual circumstances. Her new family includes Divine, assorted bad boys on Venice Beach, and her loving gay “husbands.” Along the way she meets John Waters, Edie Massey, Rip Taylor and Joan Rivers, is crowned “Miss Alternative L.A.” and wins The $1.98 Beauty Show. Through tears and glitter, Dolores survives her bitter family estrangements only to face the pain of the AIDS crisis first-hand. Dolores will tell listeners up close and personal about her life, her daughter Viva, living on the edge and where she is right now. So, join me, your host educator, author, creator or MJ magazine and talk show host Fran Lewis for this interesting and exciting interview.
