    This makes me feel like I didn’t waste my youth hanging out in the dressing room of the pyramid. I came to the city at the tender age of 16… I went to the dyke bars, but they were dressed terrible and were mean, so when this boy with a cunt found the pyramid… I know I was home.
    Thank God Linda stayed sober enough to hold a camera, and held a day job so she could develop the film.

    So delighted I came across your site. How wonderful that you have documented, preserved and presented some of the earlier days of our lives. I have always been more private and low keyed but involved, active and committed (my mother thought I should’ve been committed when she discovered me in my very early teens) for many decades. I hope I get a chance to attend your next presentation. Keep me posted. Sincere thanks.

    LINDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA………so glad I stumbled across your page via New York Magazine! WOW! This is incredible. Im from Manchester, UK and we had a scene that is reminiscent of what you captured, albeit on a much smaller scale but I love what you have done here – congrats for having the sense to capture it on film – it’s so easy now, the young un’s wouldn’t understand we had to have pictures developed!!! So, Linda – get this is in a book – a beautiful coffee table book. I need to have one! I love it, NY, drag, grit, pain, decline it’s all there and whilst it is still prominent, get it out there – thank you for sharing x

    Wondering if you have any pics of our dearly departed friend Baby Gregor. I know he and Miss Lady Kier were close. Hope to hear from some of you!

    Dear Linda ,
    thank you for the wonderful pictures from the 80’s and 90’s. That was my time as a baby drag queen from Berlin- Moabit. The pictures bring me back something of the atmosphere of this wonderful time (and a little bit of my youth).
    Cordially yours,
    10555 -Berlin

    What a wonderful project! Can’t wait for the book! (any idea when it might be available?) Congratulations!

    Linda, Sorry I missed the 7/11 show and I’m very glad that it was standing room only. Though I would have hated standing! Keep us posted on the next show. The photos on your website bring back so many memories, many of which are lost to me because I was so high back then!
    Air kisses, Ernie

    That video was so wonderful. I’m only 34, so I was only 18 by 1997. I caught the tail end of the 90’s drag explosion, right about when it was becoming part of mainstream culture in a big way. This new revival of drag, thanks in no small part to RuPaul and Drag Race (as we all know,) is really refreshing but I would be lying if I said it didn’t feel like something was lacking.

    The queens of the 90’s really seemed to be striking out new territory, with a sense of what came before. I don’t feel that radiating from the drag of now. It’s a new animal, a different animal, and one I enjoy but don’t relate to.

    These photos, and your beautiful voiceover, are so meaningful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    I always *KNEW* those photos would come together, somehow, someway. And you should be congratulated for having the foresight to take them – sorta like Nelson with the videos, but its own genre indeed!
