OneLastDanceHouston’s own “Billy Elliot,” Dirty Dancing star Patrick Swayze, was “humiliated, beaten and bullied by rednecks” long before he learned to “tuck it back under” as drag queen Vida Boheme in To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. Bayou City bullies “assumed you were gay if you were a dancer,” he explains in this fawning biography. “I remember getting jumped in the back of the church. I feel like I fought all my life” (including his ongoing battle with pancreatic cancer). —Review: Donalevan Maines
