  1. That's a great list of past and present. I have been trying to see Murray Hill for some time, and his show are always sold out.

  2. Simma Down? Love it! Every time I look at a picture of Lady Bunny, I see Dusty Springfield.

  3. All great, even old school like Jim Bailey and Charles Pierce, but I really love Sasha Velour!

    1. Me too, team Lady Bunny all the way! I can see why you picked this group, many names I have heard from the mainstream media which says a lot because at one time they would never mention anyone from the LGBTQ community unless they were making fun of us.

    2. I like to think they now realize we are not a group to be trifled with, and aren't going away.

  6. Ethan Eltinge is the mother of drag in my opinion. A beautiful assemblage of mover and shakers Mistress.

  8. "I used to visit all the very gay places
    Those come-what-may places
    Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life
    To get the feel of life
    From jazz and cocktails..."


    Mr Billy Strayhorn summed up the lives of some of these girls quite succinctly, methinks.
