A COLLEGE student's study trip to New York turned out to be a real drag when she found herself appearing in a documentary on transvestites to be shown on Channel 5 tonight.
Elizabeth Parker, a post-graduate broadcast journalism student at Highbury College in Ports- mouth, decided that the finer points of cross-dressing would make a good radio feature.
She visited the Pink Palace - the world's only finishing school "for boys who want to be girls" - to interview owne Veronica Vera, only to find a crew from Channel 5 had got there first. They filmed her interview for "Tranny School" to be broadcast tonight at 8pm.
The school, which offers instruction in lounging in lingerie and flirting fundamentals, claims to be "the only school from which you may never want to graduate".
Elizabeth said the story was the highlight of her trip. "I wanted to do something a bit way out - something you wouldn't come across in Britain."
