Elizabeth Taylor's real legacy

Re: 'I'm Not Like Anyone,' March 24, 2011.
The best tribute to actor Elizabeth Taylor may be found in Michel Tremblay's 1973 play Hosanna, in which the hero, a transvestite, feels most at home in the period dress of Cleopatra as played by the late actress in the Hollywood blockbuster. The play's tragic ending includes a costume party, attended by many other transvestites all likewise attired to reprise Taylor's role as the siren of the Nile and who, collectively, manage to brutally dilute the hero's fragile sense of identity.
