Billy Damota

Billy Damota

With all the interest in the late, Billy Damota a transgender show girl who played West Hollywood bars for many years I couldn't resist sharing this photo. What can be said about Miss Thing that hasn't be said before. In addition to her drag performances Billy also was a fil maker. Billy specialized in drag queen horror and starred in many of his own films. The "Grannie Trannie" series was the most popular. In fact Billy plays the lead in the last film he ever made - "Revenge Of The Grannie Trannies." The film was never quite finished. But it is my understanding his bull dyke friend. Dea Weiss is in the process of finishing it/ Before working for Billy Dea had her own business - Alternative Automotive/ Her slogan - you wreck em we fix em.

Billy DaMota aka Miss Billie de Coconut was my mother's great uncle. He was transgender and performed in many West Hollywood bars as Miss Billie. In addition Uncle Billy DaMota was an ametuer film maker specializing in transgender horror movies and starring in most of them himself. His last movie, "Revenge Of The Grannie Trannies" was never fully finished. Work is now in progress to fill in the missing pieces and making it available to Miss de Coconut fans and internet users iso something different in general.

Back of postcard of Mol's Coffeehouse in Exeter, ENG. Anyone recognize this handwriting or have an ancestor referred to as "Cousin C."?!

Mol's Coffee House

Mol's Coffee House

Postcard of Mol's Coffeehouse in Exeter, England. Apparently started by an Italian named "Mol" in the 16th century. Here is a link to more info on this historic place: http://www.exetermemories.co.uk/em/molscoffee.php

Back of postcard has a message to a "Cousin C." from an unknown person. Doesn't look to be the same hand as on previous postcards we've seen from England in my collection, but could be just another of the travelers in that group?

Scotland Yard

Scotland Yard

Back of previous photo entitled "Scotland Yard, London." So you can see where it was made and the info that is on the postcard.
