Legends of the Ball XIV: Octavia St. Laurent

The world is a better place for knowing you and a less bright place for loosing you.

Octavia St. Laurent represents a generation of people lost in this world. She also represents the beauty that may exist. For many, she was just another Tranny in the 90’s documentary “Paris is Burning”, however to her community she was much more than that. Octavia was a beakon of hope. She was dedicated to becoming a star, and although that did not happen in the manner that she wished, Octavia is immortalized forever on film and in the hearts of the ballroom kids.
