The Cockettes

The Cockettes, an equal-opportunity theater group comprised of women, men and children, performed in drag at San Francisco’s Palace Theater in the late ’60s and ’70s. But their high-flying act failed to soar in the pressure tank of New York’s theater scene. David Weissman and Bill Weber’s documentary traces the ascent and subsequent descent of the famed troupe, which was known as much for its flamboyance as for its talent.

 

Various clips taken from the documentary THE COCKETTES ( http://cockettes.com/ ) re-edited with music that is not from the film (Psychic TV – Maximum Swing).
