Gladys Bentley

I really can't fathom why a black crossdressing Lesbian who made a fortune in Harlem speakeasies of the 20s and married her white girlfriend would be virtually forgotten today. She was pretty doggone entertaining on Groucho's "You Bet Your Life" (video below). You can read her bio here, and hear her early recordings at Honey Where You Been So Long and here.
