The Story of Merlene

Travis telling the sad, sad story…

The story of Merlene, the one-heeled drag queen of Waxahatchie County, is a story in the best tradition of William Shakespeare and Edward Bulwer-Lytton.  This epic tale has all the makings of a seriocomic tragedy:  Love.  Betrayal.  Death.  A ghost.  Sequins.  And the Ultimate Glitter Bomb. Travis retelling this sad, sad story at the end of our Kickoff and TGIO events has become a NaNoBoston tradition, one that we hope you will become a part of.
