Dolores DeLuce's "My Life, a Four Letter Word: Confessions of a Counter Culture Diva"

From Double Delinquent Press:

In her memoir, DeLuce, a five-foot diva in six-inch heels, takes readers on a bumpy ride from her gray days in New Jersey through her escape to the tumultuous post-Stonewall days of “70s Venice, Hollywood, and gay San Francisco. When her Italian American family rejected her after the birth of her mixed-race daughter, she created a new family with the most unlikely people under the most unusual circumstances.

Her new family included Divine, the Cockettes, assorted bad boys on Venice Beach, and her loving gay “husbands.” Along the way she met John Waters, Edie Massey, Rip Taylor and Joan Rivers, was crowned “Miss Alternative L.A.” and won the “1.98 Beauty Show. Through tears and glitter, Dolores survived her bitter family estrangements only to face the pain of the AIDS crisis first hand.
