Legendary drag impresario and gender activist Flawless Sabrina ( aka Jack Doroshow) is an influential entrepreneur for establishing queer public performance in a pre Stonewall era. As a trailblazer Flawless Sabrina appropriated the artform of the beauty pageant to cross gender boundaries and award visibility of the transgressing and beholding of beauty. While challenging societal heteronormative norms at a time when the term cross dresser was not only pathologized but illegal. Arrested, detained Flawless refused to be kept in the closet as an oddity or a secret but continued to celebrate and encourage the expansion and public awareness of queer fluid expression and representation without shame or apology.The conversation will feature clips and out-takes from the 1968 documentary Queen.
