Journey back to NYC’s momentous drag scene of the 1980s and ‘90s.
For the first time ever, drag queen Linda Simpson presents an online version of her acclaimed slideshow, The Drag Explosion. This educational and entertaining her-story lesson documents a golden era of drag through Linda’s photos. Thrill to wild nightlife, queer activism, pop-culture moments, and all sorts of colorful characters as they joyfully pushed the boundaries of gender expression.
The event is in conjunction with my photo exhibit at Tiger Strikes Asteroid gallery in Brooklyn (through Nov 15th; Sat, Sun 3–6pm). Curated by Pacifico Silano.
The Drag Explosion is going to be released as a book later this year, published by Domain Books. Copies available for pre-order!
