Penny Stamps Speaker Series Presents: Legendary Drag Queens - A Tale of Drag Scenes & Queens

James Hosking Uploaded by Penny Stamps Lecture Series
This program presents a rare coming together of five legendary Drag Queens from two notoriously fabulous nightclubs in the gritty epicenters of Detroit and San Francisco’s Tenderloin district. This series event brings the San Francisco Aunt Charlie’s Queens together with Detroit’s own reigning Queens from Gigi’s Cabaret, home of the longest running drag pageant in the United States. The five artists come together to discuss the history of their legacies and artform, the role of lineage and queer community building, and how drag has changed the world through activism, glamour and celebratory inclusion.
