Wigstock 2005, Part Two: Offstage

At Wigstock there is no line dividing the performers and the audience. It is all a show; everyone is both a performer and an observer, an artist and a work of art. The personal is the political. Fantasy is made flesh. Dreams are made visible.

Wigstock 2005, Part One: On Stage

The Wigstock festival is an homage to excess and over-the-topness. Inspired by a night of clubbing about 20 years ago, the festival has evolved into a more-or-less annual summertime celebration of drag, art and good, dirty fun.
