I grew up in a small rural town in Missouri. It was a big deal nearly 40 years ago when we got cable television (we went from four stations to 12!) and even bigger when we got our first premium station. I’ll never forget the first time I stumbled upon the 1978 French-Italian movie “La Cage aux Folles” on The Movie Channel. What a puzzling story, none of the characters seemed to realize there was a man dressed and acting like a woman. Of course, this was years before I understood sexual identity or—gasp!—drag queens.
