In October 1988, the editor of Xtra! magazine, Ken Popert, asked me to volunteer for a drag makeover for their Halloween issue. Together with photographer Chuck Grochmal, I went over to Paddy Aldridge's house in the east end to be transformed.
Luckily, Paddy videotaped the whole procedure and gave me the video as a keepsake. That tape stayed in a drawer for over two decades before I was able to transfer it to digital. Here is an edited version of that evening, combined with Chuck's wonderful black and white photos.
