Although some might still be holding their breaths for Wigstock, that bawdy drag extraganza of the ’80s, ’90s, and early ’00s, to return to the East Village, a couple of newcomers have stepped up to create their own tradition. Known as Babes Trust (the British musician behind the successful Tranny Olympics in London) and Horrorchata, they’re putting together the first annual Bushwig, a day-long festival for the burgeoning experimental performance-art and drag scene in Bushwick. The celebration includes barbecue, makeovers, a photobooth, games, prizes, and sets from 30 fabulously named queens, including Jiggly Caliente, Cindy Gaudentight, and Sophie Skintight.
