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
I saw you speak about this at the gallery on Houston St last summer. This is amaaaaazing! Thanks so much for sharing this with the public!
Thanks so much for sharing your photos! They are fabulous!
Glad you like!
What a fabulous archive of a great time in LGBTQ history! Loving it!
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!
I have a couple of group shots with Baby Gregor. What a woman!
My dear Squirrel!
Im always on the look out for your HEADLINES! Nice job! Cute!
Very nice website…
Nice website. Good luck with this excellent event Linda!
I am glad that I can see that you are doing great by looking at your websites although I haven’t seen you for several years. Thank you for sharing your pictures. I enjoyed them.
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).
linda thank you for bearing witness. history, hair and high-heels and so last century!
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.
CONGRATS LADY!!!!!! Much success.
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!
REALLY NICE LAYOUT AND EASILY NAVIGABLE MENU, COLOR SELECTION A PLUS.
These are GAYMAZING! You never cease to amaze me! So glad that you kept such great track of the people that inspired me to move to NYC! <3
Linda, what can I say? These photos are amazing, gorgeous, and inspirational. What an exciting project, I can’t wait to see more!!
Thanks for stopping by!
