Drag personality Linda Simpson was at the center of New York's blossoming drag scene from the late '80s to the mid '90s. While hobnobbing with some our city's greatest queens, she took candid photos of parties, festivals and kikis galore. Recently she sorted through all of her pictures to create a good ol' fashioned slideshow presentation titled "The Drag Explosion," replete with storytelling and free of the usual slideshow-induced catatonia. "The Drag Explosion" premiered last night at Dixon Place, but in case you missed it, you can watch a snippet of it on video here and can check out some of Simpson's delightful photos below.
