Trans March and After Parties on Friday, June 26, 2009

It's time for Trans March 2009 (! Not only is there the March itself, but there'll be after parties, too! And where there are parties, you'll find burlesquers!

The Trans March starts at Dolores Park in San Francisco. From 3pm until 7, there will be a "See and Be Seen" event. Then at 7, the March starts from Dolores Park, down 19th Street, makes a right on Valencia, then ends at 26th Street. (

Starting at about 8pm at El Rio (, 3158 Mission Street, there will be the official after party. Entertainers will include performers seen at burlesque events such as Charleston Chu & Thisway/Thatway, King TuffNStuff, plus many others! Cover at the after party will be on a sliding scale from $5-50, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. But you will be turned away if you are under 21, as all events at El Rio are 21 and older.

Not only will there be an after party at El Rio, but Red Hots Burlesque ( is also on the schedule! For the usual $5-10, you can catch Dottie Lux's weekly show in the room off of the patio in back. I haven't received the lineup yet, but the only week that I can remember when there wasn't an RHB show was after Thanksgiving last year when El Rio was closed!

If that's not enough activity for ya, there's also The Bearded Lady's Trans March Freakshow! Yes, Amelia Mae Paradise brings you an evening of drag and burlesque to quench your wants and needs for entertainment post-March. And it'll all be at the Elbo Room starting at 9pm. How convenient! Here are the deets:
