The early days of the Internet attracted a lot of quirky personalities, including our dear friend and drag queen Victoria Lamarr, who was one of the first video bloggers. Her passion for cabaret was matched by her outrageous humor she brought to dealing with her personal struggles, and living with HIV and full blown AIDS.
When Victoria got sick and had to spend time in the hospital, the listeners of the show raised money to buy her flowers, but the outpouring of generosity was so much that we got her a computer and so, Victoria or Vmarr as we liked to call, her became a video blogging pioneer.
Sadly, Victoria Lamarr went to drag queen heaven, where the shows only start just 15 minutes late to a sold out crowd, and everyone tips the girls.
Today we celebrate Victoria Lamarr and take a look back on her remarkable life as an accidental internet pioneer with her quirky music and viral videos.
