About the Author

Jenettha Baines was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida along with four other siblings. After graduating from Paxon Senior High in 1981, she joined the U.S. Army and became a personnel management specialist and later an executive administrative assistant. In 1986 she received the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious, Outstanding Soldier of the Month, and MVP for the United States Army Garrison Women’s Basketball Team. During that same year, she was promoted to sergeant/E-5 and decided to pursue her dream as a policewoman. After receiving an honorable discharge, she was hired by Georgia’s DeKalb County Police Department from 1987 to 1997 where she attained the rank of master patrol officer. She also performed duties as an undercover street level narcotics officer and a community-oriented police officer. After resigning and relocating to Virginia Beach, Virginia in hopes of working with another department, Jenettha was diagnosed with Lupus in 1997 and suffered a crisis for nearly four years. Since living with the disease for nearly thirteen years, she has learned how to manage the pain while devoting much of her time to writing, surfing the internet, and enjoying life with her partner Kelli and their miniature pincher Noah.

Baines, Jenettha J. 100 of the Most Influential Gay Entertainers. Kernersville: NC: Argus Enterprises International, 2010. Paperback. 330pp. $24.95. ISBN: 978-0-9846195-5-9.

Jenettha Baines' 100 of the Most Influential Gay Entertainers is an excellent introduction to the world of drag kings and queens. Baines does a great job at providing a short biography of many different entertainers. More often than not, these biographies are heartwarming and uplifting. Many include coming out stories that might give young adults the courage to come out, as well.

Entertainers is also a great resource for those interested in the history of drag and the entertainers that helped bring it to the masses. Baines divides the book into sections that focus on older entertainers that have been performing for over twenty years, the gorgeous female illusionists, male performers that perform as males and are excellent at it, the big and beautiful drag queens, entertainers whose performances are a sight to behold, and the drag queens who specialize in comedy. Additionally, while there are more biographies on drag queens in Entertainers, Baines makes a special point to highlight drag kings as well.

From beginning to end, the reader can sense Baines' love of these entertainers, making this a great read for all interested. I would suggest this book to those with a curiosity about the drag world, its history, and its performers, both past and present.

While the language is tame, there is some graphic language related to violence; therefore, I would suggest this to ages 16 and up. Recommended for public libraries.

This is more of a keepsake than a actual book to me. I was able to get it signed by some of the entertainers and some are no longer alive. ;( The book is great and was delivered in excellent condition. Great buy and read. I will recommend to friends and family. Thanks Amazon!
