If you’re in NYC next week, this is THE EVENT of the season! The legendary Sweetie is EVERYTHING that drag can be…one of the best best lip-synchers ever! Last time I saw her perform was at the Barracuda bar, 20th Year Anniversary party last year…and she slaaayed the stage as usual, which she’s been doing since the 90s. The actor (aka Daniel Booth) recently told Paper magazine that she started her drag career with cohort Faux Pas, at Linda Simpson’s long-running Channel 69 party at Pyramid Club in NYC’s East Village. She became a regular there, as well as at infamous Downtown haunts BoyBar, Jackie 60, Mother, and her own party Queen Bee at The Cock. (pic by Aaron Cobbett).
