Mini Bio (1)

With glitzy outfits, sky-high wigs, and false eyelashes long enough to embarrass even Tammy Faye Bakker, multi-talented drag artiste Lady Bunny would turn heads even if looking glamorous was his only talent. But this isn't just another man in a dress. Lady Bunny is a successful comedienne, emcee, singer, songwriter, actress, DJ, and, most famously, the founder, organizer, and hostess of Wigstock, the outrageous festival of drag and music that had been delighting over 40,000 New Yorkers and tourists visiting New York for the event, every Labor Day for over 20 years. The feature film, Wigstock, The Movie, which chronicled the event from preparation to performance day, was produced specifically about this popular event and Lady Bunny, and has just recently been re-released on DVD.

Bunny tours constantly, bringing down the house from Cincinnati to Tel Aviv with her bawdy, Dusty Springfield-meets-Don-Rickles mix of potty-mouthed humor, Southern charm, zany "Laugh-In"-style skits, and X-rated pop song parodies. Bunny has emceed events around the world ranging from Van Cleef Arpels corporate parties to Gay Pride Parades and has shared the stage with the likes of Pamela Anderson, Margaret Cho, Dennis Rodman, Cyndi Lauper, k.d. Lang, and the B-52's, just to name a few.

As a journalist, Bunny keeps a high profile with her weekly "Star Style Report" for Star Magazine. Bunny also writes regularly for various other publications such as Visionaire, Paper, Instinct, Genre, V, Interview and Time Out New York. Frequent TV and Film appearances also bring Bunny's name to the worldwide masses. As a talking head for TV networks like E! and VH1 and with appearances on Comedy Central's "Pam Anderson Roast," HBO's "Sex and the City"; Britney Spears' MTV special "In the Zone & Up All Night," as well as feature films such as Not Another Gay Movie 2, Dragtime, Party Girl, and To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, Lady Bunny is no stranger to the various demographic pools. Bunny's even been consistently mentioned on the international hit show "Will & Grace," cementing her status as an icon.

Lady Bunny has entertained the masses at fashion industry parties and society events, has collaborated as a singer and songwriter, is a frequent cultural commentator and has performed all over the world including: Summer Rites in London, White Party in Palm Springs, Europe's most famous gay club, Heaven in London (which was one of their biggest selling nights ever), The Queen in Paris, as well as events in Morocco, Montreal, Melbourne, Japan, Berlin, Rome, Las Vegas and Amsterdam. Talented, glamorous, and funny as hell, Lady Bunny is a glittering comet hurtling toward planet Show Biz. Brace yourself for impact.

[on the Pavilion on Fire Island] I was stunned and saddened by the loss, but I checked, and the Meat Rack is fine, so I'm not that concerned.
