The House of Impossible Beauties

by Joseph Cassara

A group of young gay and transgender men unite in The House of Xtravaganza where true love grows. This warmth is starkly juxtaposed with graphic scenes of male prostitution and rape. Set during the '80s and ’90s, the spectre of AIDS is ever present, with its devastating effects all too real for the beautiful boys. The story is told with a tell-it-like-it-is directness certain to shock even the most liberated reader, with sex scenes aplenty.


We can try and try and try as hard as possible to pass as a woman, but if I’m a biological man, I can only go up to a certain point. The rest is all imagination. But just because it’s impossible doesn’t mean that should stop someone. We shoot to come as close to that perfection as we possibly can. I think Angel and Venus were impossible beauties – anyone could look at them and think, Now she is a woman.
