Annabelle Lee during her time with the Fort Wayne Daisies of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). As the photo says, Annabelle was the only player to pitch a perfect game in the 12 year history of the league. This is very cool if you ask me. By the way, Annabelle is the Aunt of Boston Red Sox and Montreal Expos Pitching legend Bill “Spaceman” Lee. Since the Spaceman is one of my favorite players in Baseball history, I could not pass up sharing this photo.
Gladys Bentley was a blues singer during the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and '30s. She would appear onstage as an openly lesbian drag king, and was later backed by a chorus line of drag queens. Her act involved making up her own (much raunchier) lyrics to popular songs and singing them to women in the audience in a sexy, gravelly voice. *Fans self*
