Female Impersonators on the Avenue
June 24, 2022
This week we'll celebrate the history of drag queens and trans performers on the Avenue. They were billed as female impersonators. Nearly every club on the Avenue featured them, and nearly every musician on the Avenue worked alongside these entertainers - from Slide Hampton, to Jimmy Coe. Enjoy rare recordings from female impersonators connected to the Avenue scene.
