This movie tells of the rise and fall of San Francisco's legendary theatrical troupe of hippies and drag queens. The original gender revolutionaries! A flamboyant ensemble of gender-bending hippies, THE COCKETTES created a series of LSD-fueled musicals in early 1970s San Francisco. These all-singing, all-dancing extravaganzas featured outrageous costumes, rebellious sexuality, and exuberant chaos. With archive footage of Peggy Cass, Allen Ginsberg, Anthony Perkins, the Grateful Dead and many more.
