Heroes with Bling is an art exhibit to celebrate the sparkling diamonds of the San Francisco queer community, running June 7 through June 29.
This is the June 11th opening reception from 6 PM – 8 PM.
From the Curator: “Drag queens or drag personalities, we love them all. They are bigger than life. They are bubbly. They project an intense amount of positive energy inspiring everyone to smile from ear-to-ear and happily wave right back at them. Drag queens are the sparkling diamonds of the queer community’s tiara; the shine, the light, the energetic force which makes all queer events super special. This exhibition is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our “Heroes with Bling” during the entire month of June, Pride 2011.”
See art such as Miss Anita Cocktail a mosaic by Michael J. Kruzich of local San Francisco Drag Persona created to pay homage to “fabulous stars of the San Francisco Drag scene”. There will also be exuberant photographs from the Glam Gender series on display for the Heroes with Bling exhibit.
