Norah Vincent’s journey begins with choosing “Ned” to use as a name, working out to put on fifteen pounds, clothes shopping in drag, getting coaching from a makeup artist friend and getting lessons from a voice coach.

Go on.” ― Norah Vincent, “If I was lonely, if I was afraid of being alone, then why abandon myself?
