Just in time for Gay Pride weekend, NYC Drag Legend Linda Simpson is guiding us all through the annals of drag herstory with her classic “Drag Explosion” photos of the hey-day (gay-day?) of Gotham’s drag boom in the late 1980s-early 1990s. Get into her prance down memory lane with all the major players of the era: RuPaul! Lady Bunny! Candis Cayne! The late, great voguing superstar Willi Ninja! Even clubland killer Michael Alig!
This is a teensy teaser of Linda’s amazing presentation called “The Drag Explosion” that Linda has presented in NYC, LA and universities across the land! Get schooled! After all, drag queens kicked off the riots that launched the gay rights movement at Stonewall 46 years ago. Attention must be paid!
And when you’re in NYC, go to one of Linda’s super-fun Bingo nights! You’ll win stuff, have a blast, and become a part of NYC drag herstory yourself!
Pics like these below are just the tip of Linda’s “Drag Explosion” iceberg. Watch and learn!
