Two outspoken lesbian celebrities chatted about coming out when Tabatha Coffey of Tabatha Takes Over appeared on The Rosie O’Donnell Show Online.
Rosie kicked off the conversation saying she had no idea that Tabatha was gay – that her gaydar must be broken, and then launched into asking Tabatha about her mom, who wasn’t quite okay with Tabatha’s being gay at first. Tabatha’s mother passed away in 2010.
“It was really surprising giving how I grew up in strip clubs with transvestites and drag queens,” Tabatha said about her mother being slow to accept her being a lesbian.
But that statement threw Rosie for a loop, and she asked Tabatha to back up and explain her strip clubs and drag queens youth.
“My parents ran strip clubs in Australia—that were transgender,” Tabatha explained, adding that her mom actually helped fund many surgeries for trans people.
