Style icons: The Cockettes

Twineth reminded me this morning of something I’d forgotten about… The Cockettes. I think she did some stuff about them at uni and as her conjoined pal it obviously filtered through.

The Cockettes were (are?) a San Francisco based psychedelic drag queen troupe from the 1960s (obv) who basically did show tunes and interpretative performance… shall we say. I’m on borrowed time right now so will revisit this post but for now… Amazing pictures from Bud Lee.
