About the Book
About the book:
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.
