Tompkins Square Park, Wigstock ’92, Lady Bunny, Poster, 1992. Wigstock was an annual drag queen festival held in Tompkin’s Square Park in New York’s East Village.

Size: 17.5 x 22.5 inches

Wigstock (named after Woodstock) began spontaneously in 1984 when Lady Bunny and other drag queens decided to put on a show in Tompkins Square Park. It became an annual East Village event that continued uninterrupted until the mid-90s when Mayor Rudolph Giuliani forced it out of the park to an area by the Hudson River.  Since then Wigstock has experienced many interruptions, revivals and changes of venue.
