Thompson Square park in New York City has a special holy ground for hippies and for gays. It seems that BOTH the Hare Krishna religion and Wigstock can trace their origins to the exact same spot in this location.
In the 1960′s some hippies came up with a counter cultural religion based on eastern hindu/buddism, and in the 1980′s some drag queens came up with a performance festival who’se cultural impact on gays, drag queens, fashion and performance reach far and wide (and on this show as well.)
Listen to our first segment taping IN PERSON from New York City, with Miss Understood, John Q Sanchez, Fausto Fernós (that’s me), Marc Felion, Miss Ronnie and Victoria Lamarr.
