A journey into the world of drag queens in 1950s New York City.

A collection of letters from the 1950s opens a world and life of drag queens in New York at the time. The letters and stories show a little known part of LGBTQ history, describing a world of friendships, sexuality, gossip, clothes, wigs and makeup, where being yourself meant breaking the law. P.S. BURN THIS LETTER PLEASE describes the era through the stories of nine former drag queens, now in their 80s and 90s, revealing how they lived, survived and flourished against all odds.

Time & place: Thursday 3 June at 20:30 in KP12 at Bergen kino. Buy tickets here.
