B.A.R. Talks 9: Drag through Bay Area history

As the Bay Area Reporter continues to celebrate its 50th year, in January we focus on drag and its local history. Drag of all kinds, from José Sarria to the newest Drag Race contestants, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and the Imperial Court, as well as countless nightlife performers, have been covered through the B.A.R.'s five decades in publication.

B.A.R. Arts & Nightlife Editor Jim Provenzano welcomes a half dozen notable drag stars, including; Heklina, Trannyshack and Mother host for years, costar of "The Golden Girls Live," and former co-owner of Oasis; Fudgie Frottage, creator and host of the annual SF Drag King Contest; Khmera Rouge, 50th Empress of the Imperial Court; Mercedez Munro, Absolute Empress LII; Persia, performer, art curator and teacher; and Sister Tilda Nextime of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The panel will take place Thursday, January 13, 6pm PT on the B.A.R.'s Facebook page, and will be archived there and on the B.A.R.'s YouTube channel.
