Hellomosexuals! Our big geigh weekend begins with a brand-new bang that you ain't done never heard of, because: (a) I ain't done never told you about it yet (patience, 'mos, I beg you!), and (b) it ain't done never happened before. It's called #HashDrag, so you see where this is going. We are told that it will be in the vein of the ancient and much-mourned carnival of subversive, twisted, punk drag freakage that was known to the world as Pho Bang, and those are some pretty big cha-cha pumps to fill. #HashDrag has a mission, according to the show's babymama, Janine Chiorazzi Pierce, and it is to "keep Capitol Hill weird and gender-bent." (A crucial undertaking, you'll agree.) "I have Sioux City Pete, Jackie Hell, EmpeRoar Fabulous, Ade, Gaydolf Hitler, Cherry Sur Bête... I'm also mixing up the lineup a bit to be inclusive of several scenes-within-scenes." Indeed, this inaugural run will feature DJs, dancing, a drag fashion runway, cabaret, burlesque, live performances, and even a little number by the Capitol Hill Synchronized Swim Team! (Yes, I guess such a thing actually exists.) Highline, 9 pm, $10, 21+.
THE SECRET DIARIES OF ANITA GOODMANN
"I believe that you create reality from the inside out, and you do it with words; first the words on the inside of your mind, then with words on the outside." So sayeth the wise and witty and big-blond-wig-blanketed brain of Anita Goodmann (Timothy Thomas), chanteuse, comedienne, and ladydude who describes him/herself as "a real life Tootsie."
