Hey, Born This Way bloggers!
I'm sharing with you my personal gay pride: an LA nightclub event I co-created in 1993 called DRAGSTRIP 66.
We wanted to create a monthly gathering with a simple goal: EVERYONE would be invited, welcomed, and celebrated!
The music would be eclectic, we'd put on a great show, and encourage patrons to express themselves without fear or judgement.
|Nina Hagen joined us at our 1st Anniversary in January 1994!|
And wow, the club became an instant phenomenon.
So we are documenting this once-in-a-lifetime convergence of '90's alternative music, queer politics, and a subversive drag ethos that defined Silver Lake and Dragstrip 66’s punk/glam/camp aesthetic.

And our 10-minute "Featurette"

AND HAPPY GAY PRIDE TO EVERYONE!
