I was so lucky to get a full length shot of this celestial creature, Wigstock was so crowded that year, 1994. It took more than 20 clicks before I got one that wasn’t obscured by 200,000 queens in wigs.
Should it be included in my up-coming show “Black And White Nostalgia” at STRUT SF in July? It’s a photographic romp through gay San Francisco from the late 70’s to the late 90’s. Yet this image is from New York City.
Hasn’t every gay man in SF been to our bigger, used to be more expensive sister city at least — a hundred times? I’m leaning towards pairing this vintage moment with dozens more local classic must-sees from the same era.

That must have been the first Wigstock on the Dock. I don’t recall being there. Maybe I stopped going when it left the East Village? I don’t know… Glad you got this shot, though. Spectacular!

Doug! Thanks. No you didn’t come, but I thank you a million times for hosting me that week. I have enough pictures from that event to do an entire show. Perhaps an e book.
