What happens when you put forty drag queens and Crystal Waters on an outdoor stage on one of the hottest days of the year? You get Wigstock, New York’s iconic celebration of peace, love, and big hair! WIGSTOCK: THE MOVIE captures drag’s ascendency to the mainstream and the conversations about gender and sexuality that it brought with it. Featuring performances by icons like the “Lady” Bunny, RuPaul, Leigh Bowery, Lypsinka, and many more!
Director Barry Shils will join us for a virtual Q&A moderated by queer film historian and programmer Elizabeth Purchell after the screening on Friday, August 26.
