Rewind to 1981. Sequestered in the Iowa cornfields, a child is born to a single parent: a television. She's a bad girl. She discovers makeup—perhaps, too early. A high school dropout, she earns her diploma on the streets.
Fast-forward to 2004. A staple on the Pittsburgh nightlife scene, this underground celebrity captures the affection of the local media as a stupid genius, a reviled sweetheart, a PBR princess, a drag queen… ah…make that a Fag Punk. She's drop-dead dazzling. She thinks she's Amanda Lepore. She's more like Vampira.
Break through to 2012. Reality Television, she's there, exuding warmth, love, laughter, and… blood. A post-Warhol mannequin, this Queer icon is on two million television sets in America—brainless, brain-dead, brainy RuPaul alumni. With the look of a cover model and the soul of a shoe, she lives everyday as if it were Halloween…. or her last.
Haus of Ham
The Haus of Ham is a comedy collective of Philadelphia's funniest performers: Pissi Myles, Lili St. Queer, Mistor Fahrenheit, and Eric Jaffe!
"A lo-fi Smiths? A hi-fi Beat Happening? There's something familiar,
comfortable and charming about the way Jason Ferraro's luxurious
baritone rests on those lightly marching snares and strumming
acoustics. The Homophones can lead you somewhere artsy, dreamy, and
lush." --CITY PAPER
