9 Patti Labelle Hairstyles
In Pay It No Mind: The Activity and Times of Marsha P. Johnson, a 2012 documentary filmed anon afore Johnson’s death, the activist and annoyance queen says, “History isn’t article you attending aback at and say it was inevitable. It happens because bodies accomplish decisions that are sometimes actual abrupt and of the moment. But those moments are accumulative realities.” Johnson was referencing the Stonewall Riots, which began in lower Manhattan on June 28, 1969, and collectively abide a awe-inspiring choice for civilian rights in America.
While the demonstrations—led by Johnson and added auto women of blush including Sylvia Rivera and Miss Above Griffin-Gracy—arose in absolute acknowledgment to a bounded badge arrest targeting the LGBTQ community, they apprenticed acquired into a above backfire adjoin boundless bigotry and injustice, and adumbrated an important angled point for the gay liberation movement. Now, as we bless Pride Month 51 years afterwards in the bosom of accession acclaimed accumulative revolution, we are attractive aback on those abstracts who were already advised assertive rioters or abolitionist activists, and bless them for the barriers they bankrupt down.
It’s anomalous icons like these that Harry James Hanson and Devin Antheus seek to admit and abduction in their advancing photo series, Legends of Drag. Featuring striking, high-drama photos alongside arresting interviews, the activity highlights annoyance elders from all over the country who were active in accepting rights for today’s anomalous association and advancement the art of drag. From Darcelle XV, the oldest alive annoyance queen at age 89, to Donna Personna, who alternate in the 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria Anarchism in San Francisco, anniversary queen has an amazing adventure to tell.
As teenagers in the Midwest, it would acquire been absurd to be able to admission this affectionate of archive.
“We’re creating assignment that we would acquire admired to acquire had as adolescents,” explains Hanson, who met Antheus back the two were teenagers growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now based in Brooklyn, the constant annoyance aerialist works as an artisan and artistic director, and serves as the project’s photographer. “As anomalous bodies advancing of age, as teenagers in the Midwest, it would acquire been absurd to be able to admission this affectionate of annal that chronicles anomalous history and celebrates it.”
The beheld basic of the projects puts a boundless circuit on aristocratic portraiture: For anniversary shoot, the queen arrives to set absolutely self-styled and with a fabricated face, generally belted by a accumulation of her annoyance daughters who acquire tagged forth for moral support. “Every shoot we’ve done has absolutely been anniversary of the queens bringing the adequateness of the looks they’re able to turn,” says Antheus, who lives in San Francisco. Whether decrepit in aerial jewels like Dolly Levi or covered in capricious blush blocking like Psycadella Façade, the queens’ apparel allege to their own accurate cast of drag.
As a abundant touch, Antheus, a spirit worker, writer, and floral designer, creates a attractive custom floral adjustment for anniversary portrait, selecting blooms based on their seasonality and uniqueness. “I’ve taken to cerebration of the flowers that I do for the queens as actuality anomalous in and of themselves. We’re application a lot of different blooms and flowers that are dyed, flowers that are painted,” they explain. “For example, carnations are anticipation of as actuality adequately pedestrian, but we’ll absorb them in a activating way that makes bodies attending at them differently. And we’ll use a lot of anthuriums, which are aloof actual anomalous in and of themselves.”
The consistent photos are explosive, rivaled in allure alone by their accompanying biographies, which awning the queens’ illustrious careers and the parties, people, spaces, and memories that authentic them. “We additionally ask them what admonition they would acquire for adolescent queens and what their accord with adolescent annoyance queens is like, because a focus of the activity is about adopting intergenerational exchange,” says Hanson.
“Being millennial bearing queers, we absolutely grew up with a abridgement of elders accurately because of the AIDS crisis,” explains Antheus. “A lot of bodies who would acquire been there to appearance us the way or explain things weren’t there.”
It’s important for the accouchement to apperceive that [drag is] not aloof ball on TV, it’s additionally a ritual attitude affiliated from our anomalous ancestors.
Right now, there’s one actual atypical adaptation of annoyance actuality acclaimed aural accepted ability abundantly acknowledgment to the acceleration of RuPaul’s Annoyance Race. While annoyance activity boilerplate represents astronomic progress, it’s additionally accustomed for the abandoning of the art form’s assorted roots and added significance—roots that this activity aims to unearth. “Drag is ball and it’s joyous, and there’s so abundant about the achievement aspect of it that is to be celebrated,” says Hanson. “But it’s important for the accouchement to apperceive that it’s not aloof ball on TV, it’s additionally a ritual attitude affiliated from our anomalous ancestors. These ancient queens are a arch amid that history and the approaching bearing of drag.”
Currently, we’re in the bosom of a all-around communicable that disproportionately affects the LGBTQ community, bodies of color, and the elderly. Hanson and Antheus agenda that some of the queens they acquire photographed abide in assisted active accessories and that all acquire been financially artificial due to the cease of annoyance venues and alive achievement spaces. “There’s this bifold activating activity on, area on the one hand, we acquire bodies who do allotment the aggregate anamnesis of what it agency to survive a affliction and what it agency to alive through what feels like an aberrant era of pandemic, and on the other, these are the exact bodies who are best at accident of this accurate situation,” says Antheus. “There absolutely is this tightrope that we as a activity charge to walk—trying to acquire and bottle and, hopefully, address as abundant of that ability as we can so that it isn’t absent to us while angry for and prioritizing the adaptation of these queens.”
If you’d like to advice the duo with a tax deductible contribution, bang here, and be abiding to chase the activity on Instagram at @legendsofdrag. Below, Hanson and Antheus allotment eight of their newest portraits and accompanying interviews with BAZAAR.com.
Only a few roses remained back we accustomed in Portland, the leaves had angry an blaze of colors, and the burghal was agilely advancing for Halloween. We fabricated the cruise aloof to shoot with one new queen: Darcelle XV, the apple almanac holder for oldest alive annoyance queen at the ascended age of 89. In accession to this record, Darcelle is additionally acclaimed from all the added queens we’ve formed with in that she has endemic her own club back the backward ’60s: the Darcelle XV Showroom, anchored aloof arctic of downtown, actual abreast to the river.
Darcelle is the columnist of two books about her connected and able life, the best contempo of which is blue-blooded Aloof Alarm Me Darcelle, a byword she again while we chatted amid shoots. She told us that for a connected time she maintained a accurate allotment amid Darcelle and Walter, her accustomed name. She kept them afar for years, but over time, they had integrated, alloyed into one. “It took a lot of money, balls, and assumption to be Darcelle all these years. Aloof alarm me Darcelle.” And yet admitting the credible unity, she still insists on the achievability of multiplicity: “Don’t anatomy a fence about me. I’m not one person, none of us are. We fought to do abroad with labels; now there is a characterization for everything.”
For her, the freedoms struggled for by the gay liberation movement were apprenticed up in this achievability of radically remaking any aspect of one’s activity or identity. “If you’re not happy—with your friends, family, job, self—move on! Someone already asked me my pronouns, I said, ‘Fuck you! I don’t affliction what you alarm me, as connected as you’re calling me … and the analysis clears.’”
Dolly Levi dances to the exhausted of her own drum, and never misses a beat. Absolutely literally, we saw her comedy the tambourine, aerial kick, cartwheel, and do the splits at Hamburger Mary’s one night in West Hollywood. She accustomed at our shoot at the Arctic Hollywood busline base with her abounding goddess dress buried like a superheroine below tear-away boy clothes. The dress, advised by Gabriella Pescucci, was beat by the helpmate of Dracula in the 2004 blur Van Helsing and won by Dolly at a flat auction.
The mercury anesthetized 90 degrees on the day of our shoot, but Dolly never bankrupt a sweat. Advancing from a classical amphitheater background, her annoyance is aggressive by old MGM films and the cancan dancers of Toulouse-Lautrec. She belongs to the House of St. James, the better annoyance ancestors in Orange County. “Drag queen” itself is an character she eventually came to acquire over her antecedent preference: able changeable impersonator. And she absolutely is an eminent professional. She can accord you the nitty-gritty of arrangement law and a absolute actual materialism of the ever-growing annoyance industry at the bead of a dime. But she wasn’t confined controlling absoluteness that summer afternoon; she was channeling Mother Nature herself. Back asked what Mother would acquaint the children, she responded, “Stop. Look. Listen. Live. Respect it. Believe none of what you apprehend and alone bisected of what you see.”
Lady Red Couture lives up to her name, accepting hand-made the sequined hip-hugging dress she wore to our West Hollywood shoot. Mother Couture, as she’s generally known, describes herself as the “largest live-singing annoyance queen in captivity,” and her advantageous attendance warrants allegory to Patti LaBelle, with the accession of a lime-green argot piercing.
“I’ve been about for a connected time,” she told us, “so annihilation that sparkles or shines, I’m actual acceptable at.” Adult Red cohosts the YouTube appearance Hey Qween! with her longtime collaborator, Jonny McGovern, now in its eighth season. The brace annual all the top stars in the annoyance industry today, and Adult Red’s animated commentary, apparent laugh, and appetence for activity acquire caked her own abode aural the pantheon. She’s kept active during apprehension with her podcast and added agenda annoyance offerings “whenever the kids allure me.”
When we implored her to busy aloft her affectionate role mentoring adolescent queens, she confessed, “I alarm it burglary their energy, because that’s absolutely what it is.” In return, Mother Couture makes them dresses, beats their faces and bestows them little doses of well-aged wisdom. “I consistently acquaint them: Don’t alive in muck and mire, because it’s unnecessary. The devil is on his job, so why shouldn’t we be?” She encourages her annoyance accouchement to be absolute in what they ask from the universe, because the cosmos will consistently deliver.
With a force of attenuate alignment and alluring appearance at 73 years old, Donna Personna is added able than ever. She cites Jackie O. and Marilyn Monroe as above inspirations, lithely embodying that astriction amid wife and mistress. Elegant, sultry, vulnerable, she gave it all during our shoot.
In 2014, she starred in Beautiful by Night, a documentary about the Hot Box Girls, ancient annoyance queens still assuming at Aunt Charlie’s in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood. We attempt with Donna in 2019, aloof afore she served as the admirable align of SF’s Pride parade, whose affair was Ancestors of Resistance. Admitting actuality devastated that Pride was canceled this year, Donna charcoal committed to transmitting a history of anomalous attrition to the adolescent generations.
Donna co-wrote and is portrayed in the accessible comedy Compton’s Cafeteria Riot. She recounts the activity of liberation and acceptance she begin as a boyish boy in the eponymous insurgence of transgender sex workers, gay hustlers, and hippies depicted in the play. It was slated to admission June 12 and bout through New York and New Orleans, but final affairs will acquire to wait. In the meantime, she’s already amorphous assignment on an acclimatized screenplay. We’ll all be cat-and-mouse for this all-important accession to the anomalous actual archive. Donna takes abundant pride in the work, accepting accustomed a brand of approval from Susan Stryker, the foremost historian of the 1966 riot. “I’ll be blame up daisies and article I was complex in will still be affecting hearts and alteration minds, and I admire that.”
Donna’s appulse is acquainted on a added claimed akin too: “Trans women in accurate appetite to allocution to me and acquaint me their story, and advice them with their challenges. Sometimes it feels like a lot of responsibility. But if seeing me accomplish inspires them, that’s a admirable thing. Look, I’m in my 70s, and I’m still here. Not alone am I still here, but I’m a playwright, I’m a admirable marshal, I’m happy. Activity is wonderful.”
The Goddess Bunny, Los Angeles | Capricorn
The Goddess Bunny’s band figure cachet in the Hollywood underground is circuitous by her mystifying claimed history. By her own account, The Goddess is a descendent of the Italian aristocratic bloodline, formed as Ronald Reagan’s claimed secretary, anachronous Ricky Martin back he was 19, and alone apparent Divine’s anatomy afterwards her abortive afterlife in 1988—and those are aloof a few morsels she appear over brunch.
It’s about absurd to accommodate an annual of The Goddess’s activity that doesn’t complete sensationalized, because her activity has been amazing in every aspect. Alike the added accurate biographical capacity apprehend like the artifice of a melodrama: She was stricken with polio as a adolescent and subjected to a cardinal of adulterated antidotal procedures. By the backward ’70s, she had begin her calling as an amateur and began assuming at underground Hollywood clubs. Her alive performances actinic a mix of alive singing, lip-synch, and tap ball into a absolutely one-of-a-kind act. She acquired added ballyhoo for her apparent attractiveness that remained uncompromised by her different physicality.
Breakthroughs into the boilerplate acquire included Hollywood Vice Squad (1986), Scumbag (2017), and music videos for Dr. Dre and Marilyn Manson. A video of The Goddess tap-dancing while twirling a awning accomplished proto-viral cachet in the mid ’00s, introducing her assignment to a new bearing of countercultural youth.
As we scouted a shoot area for Juanita More, we advised the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco’s Nob Hill. Its massive neoclassical bluff acquainted a applicable accomplishments for a queen of her stature, but ultimately, we autonomous for a added alert area above the street. As we captivated our shoot, the valets at the Ritz bent a glimpse of her, and anon greeted Juanita by name as if she were the mayor. We had accepted the auberge agents to shoo us abroad from the entrance, but instead, they offered to affectation with Juanita, captivation accessible the aperture for their Queen.
Juanita is all-over in San Fran, consistently hosting contest and acknowledging accommodating initiatives. Abundant of her assignment focuses on canonizing and attention the bequest of anomalous spaces in a burghal area they are added endangered. She hosts a annual advance visiting those absent places.
When aftermost we spoke, we discussed the contempo advertisement that the South of Market academy The Stud would not be reopening at its Ninth Artery location. She reminisced about cheating into its Monday nights as a jailbait and declared the affable and all-embracing ambient consistently begin there over the decades. She alleged the account of its cease a huge accident for our community. And still, she believes San Francisco charcoal a abode for oddballs and queers to appear ascertain themselves. Those who do will be greeted by her affectionate gaze, whether at one of her innumerable accessible appearances or attractive over them from one of her comfortable murals broadcast throughout the city.
Despite her bounded fame, she still letters an astonishing activity every time she sees her face above from Alamo Square, one antidotal adult amid the rest. Anytime adherent to her city, alike with nightlife spaces anon shuttered, Juanita can be begin confined aliment and face every Friday from the balustrade of the Lookout on Market Street.
We attempt with Love Connie at the In-N-Out on Sunset Boulevard, area above-mentioned to the pandemic, she could be begin four times a week. A bayou-raised girl, she’s been in Hollywood activity on 23 years. Her affable and comedic appearance fabricated absolutely the arena on the sidewalk that day aftermost summer. “You’re aloof not activity to get allure from me,” she insists. But we beg to differ. Whether in a dumpster or on a Parisian runway, Connie stays accurate to her brand alloy of affected and high-octane antics.
A best for alive women, she wears over-the-counter Revlon. Her annoyance is aggressive by Debbie Harry, bounded adorableness queens, Bond girls, Playboy bunnies, and, of course, the final babe abhorrence trope. She’s not that innocent though. She accepted to bistro nine jars of assistant pudding during quarantine. Added than annihilation to appear in “that accomplished new apple thing,” she’s attractive advanced to the reopening of celebrity holes, conceivably abounding with duke sanitizer.
Connie’s blockage busy; in accession to accepting fabricated several cameos in agenda annoyance shows, she additionally installed a new annoyance closet in her comfortable Hollywood apartment.

Psycadella Bluff took her name from the soundtrack of the 1968 sci-fi affected archetypal Barbarella, starring Jane Fonda. Her absolutely styled name is Princess Psycadella from the Absent Land of Blush of the House of Facade. Amid her sculptural wigs, maximalist makeup, and bejeweled talons, she absolutely is a eyes from some added irised dimension. The tricolor dress she wore to our shoot was commissioned custom, afterwards she saw it beat by Kelly Clarkson on The Voice. It wasn’t so abundant Clarkson’s brilliant ability that aggressive Psycadella, but rather that the colors bout the arrangement of the pansexual pride flag.
Her annoyance is afflicted by Chi Chi LaRue, bounded fable Pauline St. James, and, of course, Divine. Psycadella was advantageous abundant to see the closing accomplish in L.A. aloof a few weeks afore her abortive death. Never abashed to blast conventions, Divine bankrupt a table at that performance. Psycadella daydreams about a timeline in which Divine had lived to portray her annoyed role on Married… with Children; she speculates we ability acquire gotten Divine’s Annoyance Race instead of RuPaul’s if the former’s brilliant had connected to rise.
Psycadella is accepted as a acquaintance of the abandoned and the mother to all, a moniker she humbly accepts.
