San Francisco drag legend Vicki Marlane, 75, gets the New York Times treatment. For the full interview, click HERE. Some choice quotes:

"[When I get home from performing,] I put a couple of frozen White Castle hamburgers in the microwave, put the television on, get my caffeine-free Pepsi and I sit down, unwind and eat my little baby burgers."

"I don’t cook except for beans. I love beans — lima beans, great northern beans with ham hocks, all of them."

"That’s how I’d like to die, on stage. At the end of one of my big numbers I’d just fall to the ground. They’d be applauding, saying, “This is so great,” and then they’d start wondering, “Why is the poor thing not getting up?”
