Original videocassette recordings of performances by the Popstitutes. Performers who appear in the videos include Michael Collins, Brad Kellogg, Alvin Orloff; cabaret performer, writer, and transgender activist Justin Vivian Bond; transwoman cabaret singers Veronica Klaus and Bambi Lake; composer and filmmaker Jack Curtis Dubowsky; pop novelty act the Del Rubio Triplets; punk performers and writers Jennifer Blowdryer and Danielle Willis; Drew Daniel of the experimental electronic music duo Matmos; painter and queercore performer Jerome Caja; avant­garde drag performer The Steve Lady (Steven Price); and Fudgie Frottage (Lu Read), co­founder of the San Francisco Drag King Contest. None of the videos have been published or posted online. The collection also includes an unreleased documentary about the Lavender Tortoise, a combination of bus tour and performance art that brought a coachload of drag queens and queer punks to Los Angeles and Disneyland in 1991. Several Klubstitute regulars participated in the trip. Also included is a video of an early show at Trannyshack, a week drag cabaret and queer dance club hosted by Heklina from 1996 to 2008 at The Stud in San Francisco.
