Danny La Rue was a very brave man and I'm sorry never to have met him. Like Oscar Wilde he too was impressed by the ritual and ceremony of the Roman Rite, as practised in Soho in the 1930's, and almost embarked on a priestly career. But his mother said that his pulpit would be much wider. She was right. He was in a class of his own. Unlike most "drag queens" to-day, he was not full of spite and filth. There was no swearing in his act. It was a joke and parody. May he rest in peace.
