Why are queer communities often found at geographic peripheries like the waterfront? What is the connection between drag and the seaport? Join the Seaport Museum for a conversation with drag legend, Linda Simpson, who will answer these questions while illuminating the “herstory” of drag and sharing her first-hand account of the rise and evolution of drag in the 1980s and 90s in New York City. This lively presentation will include personal photos and memories––assembled just for this event––which highlight drag history on the waterfront, including the annual Wigstock and a drag-themed boat cruise that embarked from the South Street Seaport. Registration required.
