Trannyshack Seattle

Brace yourselves, party people of Seattle: it’s that special time of year again. Though not a federally recognized holiday (yet), this magical night uses up more make-up than Halloween, more booze than New Years Eve, more explosions than the Fourth of July, more glittery sparkle than a Christmas tree and more tucking, binding and prep time than a thirty-pound Thanksgiving turkey. That’s right, kids: it’s time for Trannyshack, the San Fran-based tran-o-rama that has now become an international phenomenon with Trannyshack UK. Mistress Heklina and her cast of characters (including our own incomparable Ursula Android and an assortment of some of the Emerald City‘s classiest ladies) has turned her once weekly event into revolving nights all over the country, flipping the big old bird to the stereotypical Whitney syncing beauty/drag queen routine, and exalting in the downtown and dirty tradition of Warhols’ superstar queens.
