Dorian Corey

Dorian Corey was also featured in the doc Paris Is Burning. Known for his talent and wisdom, Corey's most quotable line in the doc was, "Shade is I don't tell you you're ugly but I don't have to tell you because you know you're ugly... and that's shade." Corey passed away in 1993 but he made headline news when a mummified body was found in a trunk of his home. Investigators determined the body had been dead for about 15 years. There was a note attached to the body that read: "This poor soul broke into my apartment and I was forced to shoot him."
