Transvestite at her birthday party, N.Y.C. 1969
Arbus commented: She had "the most unbelievable walk. I couldn't see the man in her."
Vicki knew how to use a knife, tortured her cats and once had stabbed a customer. For that she was sent to the Tombs jail.
Vicki took to Diane and gave her presents (which she had stolen from department stores). Vicki invited Diane to her birthday party, and Diane found that she was the only guest. But she took one of her best known photographs.
