I have just written an article for Laser Magazine about the Cockettes, which I believe will be out in September. I’ll post that one later.
Sylvester, who was part of the drag troupe, is finally getting his own documentary. The 10 minute preview features interviews with Martha Wash (who started as a backup singer for him in the Two Tons o’ Fun), Patti Labelle and out-of-drag RuPaul. But a gay doc would not be complete without recollections by your favourite drag daddy, John Waters, right?

On some websites, the 10 minute version is listed as a mini documentary in it own right. And this preview has been uploaded for a while, so let’s hope there is a feature length baby coming soon.

Below is my new favourite music video. It is by Tammie Brown, the drag queen that was kicked off RuPaul’s Drag Race way too soon. They just didn’t get her. But we do!
Tiger Lilly, she’s very nice
