This is the first solo exhibition by Joseph Abbati for his exhibit entitled “LARGER THAN LIFE”, a tribute to San Francisco drag queens. It will be hosted by Strut, the home for gay, bi, and trans men's health and wellness from the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. The exhibit consists of tapestries (4ft X 5ft) made from photographic portraits with video screening "DRAG SFO". The drag queens in this exhibit include Peaches Christ, Sister Roma, Juanita More, Honey Mahogany, Heklina, Grace Towers, and Creme Fatale.
This exhibit is to give tribute to drag queens who have been on the forefront of fighting for LGBT rights. In the 60’s they began by fighting back at Stonewall to help start the “gay liberation” movement. In the 80’s and 90’s they became activists and caretakers for people with AIDS. Now in the 21st century, they continue to stand as forebearers of gender fluidity.
