Heklina, Queen Drag Geek

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the July 14th, 2008

Irina has been shadowing dragstar Heklina around San Francisco for so long, she may as well get a Tranny Chaser t-shirt! You can get one for yourself at Heklina’s legendary party called Trannyshack — mucking up our fair city weekly for 12 years, the club night has been officially recognized by our own special mayor, Gavin Newsom. No Cher or Barbara Streisand here, these drag queens do songs by Arcade Fire, Peaches, Missy Elliot, Bjork and the inimitable Kate Bush. Heklina has hosted Mary Wilson of the Supremes, Charo, Gwen Stefani and NY party monster Lady Bunny. Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters performed frequently at Trannyshack before moving to New York. Heklina IS a super drag geek and here we get a piece of history and a totally different kind of geek.
