A streetcar painted pink

THERE WAS ONE PLAY BY Tennessee Williams, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of such American classics as A Streetcar Named Desire, which he never wanted performed in his lifetime. It was And Tell Sad Stories of the Death of Queens, with its central character of a transvestite who brings a sailor home in the hope of seducing him. It was Williams's only openly homosexual play. Central character Candy was based on Candy Darling, a friend of his and one of several transsexuals who worked in Andy Warhol's art factory and starred in his 1968 film Flesh. It is set in New Orleans' steamy French quarter.

Candy Darling (1944 – 1974) actress
James Lawrence Slattery, Jr. was raised in Massapequa Park, Long Island, New York by his divorced mother, who worked as a bookkeeper at Manhattan's Jockey Club, and later at the local telephone company.
He won a 'Most Beautiful Baby' contest - but, because of a mistake by his mother, as a girl. For a while he ran a Kim Novak Fan Club. When he was 17, his mother confronted him with the rumors that he had been seen in a local gay bar in drag. He left the room and returned en femme.
