Woodlawn, 68, who has been in declining health, is being examined for lesions discovered in her brain and lungs.
"Holly's (sic) has made it clear that she wants to return home, surrounded by friends and if she must die, she doesn't want to die in a nursing home," says cabaret performer Penny Arcade who created the GoFundMe campaign. Arcade, a long-time friend of Woodlawn was featured with her in Warhol's 1970 film "Women in Revolt."
"We who love Holly, hope to raise enough funds to continue her care and hopefully bring Holly home with 24-hour nursing care, after she recuperates in a nursing home," Arcade wrote. "Holly gave [visibility] long before it was comfortable to do so and also gave thousands of people both hope and pleasure."

Said, "Hey, honey,
Take a walk on the wild side."

Gay Porn Stars Say They Were Attacked at Berlin Club

Taylor adds his mouth was split open.
"I was the one person pushing Kayden away from the barmen and the barmen away from Kayden," Taylor continues. "You know what has happened tonight is not from his doing or mine. There's no reason for anybody to be racist."
