All Aboard! Drag Queens Take to the High Seas for Wigstock: The Cruise
Back when drag was still subversive, Wigstock was an annual outdoor drag festival that captivated crowds in the ‘80s, ultimately growing as exponentially as gender-bending host Lady Bunny’s hair. After an extended hiatus, Wigstock returned last year, taking to the high seas for the maiden voyage of Wigstock: The Cruise. Sunday night (the second such cruise), it sailed again, this time with a plethora of old-school drag queens who’ve been with Wigstock from gay one—long before RuPaul’s Drag Race became required viewing for gays and bachelorettes.
