To keep the rebel vibe alive, Glamour and DJ Monsieur Gaston have announced the first annual Filthy Filth Fest for the night after Thanksgiving. It aspires to be a “super queer showcase” of live music, drag, burlesque, painters, vendors, clowns and more.
There will also be a panel of guest speakers — including a city alderman! — to discuss being queer in St. Louis and how to make a difference in the community.
“There’s a lot of hyper-polished pretty princesses in the limelight, and that’s cool,” notes Glamour, “but equally important are the evil queens that make the story interesting.”
