$16/Adult, $13/Child or Senior

Winter’s A Drag is extended with a screening of this 1993 documentary about East Village legend International Chrysis. Kicked out of her Bronx home at age 14 for what she said were “differences in taste” with her family concerning her wardrobe, she flourished downtown during the 70s as a singer and showgirl. She was daughter to Flawless Sabrina and a mother to many queens including our guest presenter, Perfidia, who remembers her fondly. “She literally was the first person to put me in full drag…from there we shared our lives.” We’ll screen SPLIT, plus other rare clips, followed by a panel on Chrysis’ legacy with some of her closest friends and biggest fans.
