Provincetown is one of the most diverse little spigots of land when it comes to their drag community. Their drag scene is filled will all types of art, from club kids to comedy queens to pageant queens, to drag kings, and everything in between.
Our very own Pearly Gates is a performer who started performing in New Hampshire before relocating to P-Town almost 25 years ago becoming a year round resident. Pearly is just plain nuts and a Wonder Woman fanatic , and can be seen every where from A-House, to Boat Slip to the Crown and Anchor and several dinner cabarets around town. She is also known for making a lot of her own outfits...AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT.... and is starting to gain notoriety especially for making leather harnesses. She has definitely proven herself as a multi talented performer and charity fundraiser. Pearly started playing around with makeup in high school, going to Rocky Horror, and then doing performance and video art in college, and the drag slowly evolved from that. And her name? Pearl was her religious grandmothers name! So she went with Pearly and Gates as in the Gates in heaven. She says "Just wait till I show up, and my grandmother is standing there waiting for me and I announce Pearly Gates is in the house."

But if you ask me...this is by far her better side.
