There was a vary famous and beautiful performing white drag queen in Jackson in the early 1980's named Angel Austin, noted for her performances at COAD Disco.
He was really a dude named William Bishop from Pearl.
What became of her/him ???

Wil!! I have been trying to find you for ages. I didn't post this question, but I have been think about you for months now. In case you didn't notice the name attached, this is your old friend Jim Adcock. I have a film / video production company in Dallas called Illusion Fields LLC. Email me at [email protected] . I can't wait to catch up with you.

William I DID NOT POST IT EITHER as Jim states he did not and I believe him. You are a memorable person though!!! Probably some curious old fan! When I brought some friends from college to see you perform one night the lot were mesmerized at you on stage and when you turned back into you! I was thrilled to find this posting when I was looking to see if COAD was still open as I have some neighbors transferring to Jackson who are horrified to go there. Found out since COAD was bulldozed long ago. I am in Atlanta myself now. Be in touch sometime and catch me up on three decades. My email is [email protected] You may best remember me from the night John Lennon was shot LOL. Later RJ

William my email is actually [email protected] if you type the 1 instead instead of one it will give you a mean Continental Airlines dude in Detroit who I hear from all the time LOL. I had the one instead of the 1 in our old MSN address which we argued over for six years LOL.

It's nice to hear from you! I used to hang around with the Dream Girls backstage at Corky's Emerald City. Tony Quinn (Lauren Heart), Bree Bardot etc. You were very kind to indulge me and I'm sure I was a nuisance. I have fond memories of those performances, especially, "I Like Plastic it's Fantastic" where you covered the audience in Saran Wrap.

Would love to live those days once more,
