The Queens of the Bowery
February 1, 2012 § 1 Comment
Last week I gave a paper titled “Simone de Beauvoir and the Queens of the Bowery” at the third annual Emory University Studies in Sexualities Graduate Conference. In the paper, I engage the history of “gender” as analytic vocabulary through this historic postcard (1945) of the Queens of the Bowery who performed at Sammy’s Bowery Follies in New York.
I am very interested in knowing if anyone else has encountered other historic images or information about Sammy’s Bowery Follies or the Queens of the Bowery!
