"Gladys Bentley was a blues singer, piano player, and drag king who performed bawdy tunes in Harlem nightclubs throughout the 1920s and '30s. Despite the social obstacles she faced as a black, openly queer woman, her outrageous and energetic act became a mainstay of the Harlem cabaret. In 1952, under the oppressive social conditions of the McCarthy era, Bentley publicly renounced her previous identity and claimed to have found happiness as a feminine housewife."--Hazel Newlevant's website, viewed May 1, 2014.
