Jennifer Fox        aka. “The Myra Breckinridge of Burlesque”..
"Isn’t He or Isn’t She?" was the byline Ms. Fox used in many of her newspaper promo ads.. Because in 1968, she was still a man waiting to undergo sex reassignment surgery!
By the early 70’s, Jennifer would employ “America’s Foremost Sex-Change” in all of her promotional material.. She was represented by the 'Jess Mack Agency'; operating out of Las Vegas, Nevada..

Vintage press photo from March of ‘79 features Jennie Lee posing with just some of the Burlesque-related memorabilia she’s collected over the years.. This room in her Palos Verdes home served as a makeshift “museum”.. But by the mid-1980’s, she would build "EXOTIC WORLD" on an old goat farm in Helendale, California..
Jennie was uniquely suited to start the Burlesque Hall Of Fame.. She formed the 'Exotic Dancers League' in 1955 to fight for dancers’ rights.. And by ‘57, began to hold annual conventions where dancers could reunite and hand out a "Fanny Award" (seen in the photo) to a public figure they deemed promoted the spirit of Burlesque.. Mickey Rooney, Walter Winchell, and Tony Curtis, were some of it’s earliest recipients..
