Dive into the LSD- and acid-fuelled exuberant chaos of the gender-exploding revolutionaries who erupted out of San Francisco in the 1970s. In their two-and-a-half-year existence, The Cockettes created 20 shows launching a unique burst of cultural experimentation and artistic outrageousness that continues to influence culture, politics, spirituality and club life. But it wasn’t just drag, they were performing their lives.

CN: Contains archive footage depicting racial stereotypes.
