Go back in time to the 1940s, when burlesque female impersonator Lea Sonia ruled the stage, and hear the stories behind some of the Justice & Police Museum collection’s most striking images of female impersonators.
The event includes drag performances throughout the evening and drag-inspired life drawing.
Curator, Nerida Campbell, will share a story about Neville McQuade, pictured here in a police mugshot, who was mentored by Lea Sonia. In the dark days of World War two Neville’s love of flamboyant costumes drew police attention and unwelcome public scrutiny.
