"Surreal Saturday"
July 3, 9pm

From the day Candy Darling walked into Andy Warhol's avant garde circle in the late 60s, to today's representation of famous drag queens in films like "Girls Will Be Girls", drag performers have been crossing the line between entertainment and art.

Miami's drag queens are seen on postcards and pin-up calendars all over the world representing the South Beach club scene.

"Surreal Saturday" showcases some of the current hot drag performers including superstar Adora, underground stars Mari Trini, recent star acts like Las Divas del Jacuzzi, the highly theatrical Argentine Fernie-Q and Haitian import Ebony. Other performers include Geraldine and La Maroca.

Photographers Ali, Dale Stein and Tom Franks exhibit work devoted to drag. Also on exhibit, early photos by Jamie Robinson from her celebrated 1995 calendar for "The Manipulator," photography by club personality Ernesto Galan and work by fashion model/photographer Marlene de Lazaro.

Drag beauty pageant video "Miss Lauderhill 1998" by Guillermo Manrique and Miguel Vivas and "Adora Adora" by Danilo de la Torre and David Rohn round off this surreal Saturday in Little Havana.
