" Wigstock in Black & White: 1985 - 2005 "
Wigstock was a free outdoor festival that ran from 1985 - 2005 in NYC at various locations. Made up of drag queens, hippies, punks, rock stars and a smattering of various alternative communities. A free all day event of performance and kooky antics. Founded by the legendary drag queen The lady Bunny ( along with Hattie Hathaway) it finally ended its twenty year run in 2005. It also became a documentary style film called " Wigstock the movie" directed by Barry Shils which can be found at your local rental shop. Wigstock is gone but will never be forgotten. Long live the queen.Preview the first 15 pages of the book and order here in Paperback & Hard cover at http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/406522
