Hey Tranny It's Tranny

Gay Pride is never short on trashy, flashy spectacle, and Nark Magazine-produced party Hey Tranny It's Tranny (I don't get it, either) should be a glittering, eye-and-ear–traumatizing exemplar of the form. Goth punk-ish drag queen and Ru Paul Drag Race winner Sharon Needles might be the most recognizable draw, but musical headliners SSION are not to be missed. A kind of John Waters-ian electro-pop theater troupe headed by Missouri-bred art star Cody Critcheloe, SSION combine confidently pumping dance tracks with colorful onstage camp. Hosted by local personality Ben DeLaCreme and also featuring JD Samson of Le Tigre and MEN fame. With Alaska Thunderfuck, Hi Fashion, Jinkx Monsoon , Edgar Um , Phyllis Navidad. ERIC GRANDY
