If you don’t know who Mother Flawless Sabrina is, please brush up on your herstory. Read this, then this. And definitely see The Queen. Flawless Sabrina is a legendary legend, and one of the great unsung heroes of the LGBT movement. Her life is being archived by WOWlebrity Zackary Drucker who asks us to please post the Booster campaign to help support Flawless Sabrina’s work.
From the Booster campaign:
The mission of Flawless Sabrina Archive is to preserve the lifework of Flawless Sabrina as a resource for artists, activists, and scholars. Flawless Sabrina Archive resides at the convergence of the past and present in countercultural subject matter, enriching society through the documentation of history and the empowerment of difference. The archive includes film, sculpture, writing, photography, painting, and music. Find out more at flawless-sabrina.com
Our design pays tribute to the 100+ times between 1959 and 1969 Flawless Sabrina was arrested for the crime of being a female impersonator, while running a nation-wide drag competition. During this time in history, crossdressing was a felony.
We’ve come a long way since the initial fundraising we did for the FSA, which enabled us to archive a large amount of Flawless Sabrina’s historic materials. As we move forward with a book project to tell the story of Sabrina’s life and career, and aim to eventually find permanent & archival storage for the FSA, everything is currently in a rented storage unit.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to pay for monthly storage on that unit, as well as any additional fees that may arise along the path to finding the FSA a permanent home. We hope to raise enough to pay for storage for the next few years, which will enable us to find the best permanent home for the archive when the time is right. What better way to raise these funds than sell some gorgeous, exclusive t-shirts in honor of our beloved grandma Sabrina!
As if the feeling of helping out wasn’t enough, you also get this super cool shirt that’s available as a baseball tee, a v-neck, or a tank top!
