Lavonda’s not sure whether it’s worse that G.W. is married or decades younger than her mother. Or that he’s married to her best friend! She’s a free spirit for sure, bSordid Lives Promo 01ut even she has limits, and those limits are about to be tested by her proper sister, cross-dressing brother, closeted nephew and a host of friends who are coming for Peggy’s funeral to say their good-byes. If you haven’t seen the movie, the sequel or the television series, you’re about to find out why Sordid Lives is a cult classic, especially in the gay community.

“A night filled with rampant sex, accidental death, cross dressing, Nic Fit 02Lpants flinging, chain smoking, gun toting, sibling rivalry, infidelity, drunkards, simpletons, owning up, coming out, and so much more!!,” posts Cindi. “Curious??? You have to see it to believe it!”
