The Most Outrageous Drag Troupe
My friends Michael Johnstone and David Faulk are the brilliant creators of the San Francisco drag troupe called Verasphere. One of the best ways to experience their creativity is to march with them on Gay Pride. Every year they open up their colorful drag closet (a huge storage container) and share the contents with friends and family. I have marched many times with them down Market Street, and we always win the award for most outrageous contingent. Come join in the fun!
Michael and David have been supporters of The Jerome Project since its infancy. They donated video and ephemera that belonged to Jerome (modified drag pumps, a bald Bozo the Clown head piece, and a scary 50's clown toy). Because of their generosity, I decided to create a repository of Jerome treasures that is accessible for research and academic use.
Lastly, check out the grin on Bob Girardi. Bob is my new intern. He is helping out with scanning content for the Jerome Caja Digital Catalogue Raisonné. As you can see, he had a great time with Verasphere. They welcomed him with open arms. Thank you, Verasphere, for letting us march with you!
