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!

    I’m the grandson of Sammy Fuchs and have a collection images and perhaps a lot of information. You may contact me by e-mail.
