Walker Art Center says
Outrageous, inventive, and exuberant, the theatrical troupe of men and women known as the Cockettes were progenitors of “acid drag,” a mix of LSD-fueled hippiedom and gender-bending radical performance. Former member Fayette Hauser traces the arc of the group’s aesthetic from its origins in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood to its influence on current pop culture. Screenings of rare footage of Cockettes’ shows follow at 8 pm, with live narration by Hauser.
