BE PART OF HISTORY IN THE MAKING WITH LEGENDS OF DRAG FINE ART COLLECTION
$100 of every fine art purchase will be donated to the GLBT Historical Society to help preserve our community’s proud history in the “Big Queer Bubble” that is San Francisco
In the wake of rising waves of hate, vitriol, idiocy, and attempts across this country to erase us, to make us “lesser thans,” to ban books that cover our struggles, artistry, and history, and to take away our hard-won rights as a proud and growing LGBTQ+ community, we stand together, stronger than ever, and fully woke and ready for the fight of our lives in the months ahead.
Regardless of a lack of representation on Ru Paul’s Drag Race (minus, of course, our Honey Mahogany), San Francisco is known for its abundant, hilarious, and sometimes political drag. Our queens in the Emerald City by the Bay are busy bees who do so much for our community.
You can now celebrate them, and be a part of preserving our history by purchasing one of our fine art prints featuring our San Francisco Legends of Drag, including: Donna Sachet, Juanita More!, Glamamore, Heklina, Mutha Chucka, and Sister Roma. $100 from every purchase will be donated directly to the GLBT Historical Society between now and 12/27/23 (Celso’s birthday).
Each 20x20” piece of fine art is printed on museum-quality LexJet Lustre archival paper with vibrant colors, archival inks, and built-in UV inhibitors. They come in a modern, frameless look made of hand-polished, BPA-free clear acrylic with crystal-clear edging.
The GLBT Historical Society collects, preserves, exhibits and makes accessible to the public materials and knowledge to support and promote understanding of LGBTQ history, culture and arts in all their diversity. Founded in 1985, the society is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of LGBTQ public history. It is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Speaking of History in the Making:
If you’ve not tuned in for the new “Queen and Papis” show, a hilarious new podcast featuring me, my husband Celso Dulay, and our “Queen” (Marissa Eugenia), it’s worth a listen (or watch).
During episode #2, just posted on Thirstday (10/19) at 4:20pm PV time, one of the highlights is the 40th edition of the Folsom Street Fair, the granddaddy of fetish festivals that spawned a similar, notorious event (FOLSOM EUROPE) in Berlin, Germany.You can listen in via your favorite podcast channel (here), or see inside the creators’ studio on the “Queen and Papis” show’s own website and enjoy it with both video and audio. So kick back, relax, and grab a cocktail or two. The show’s first sponsor is the Glitter Worthy Store (dot com). You can show support by purchasing “Queen and Papis” merchandise on the new site.
And remember, “Live Your Sparkle” :)
