A Cabaret Love Tour on Wheels


A Socially Distanced Performance Hug for Philadelphia

The Beardmobile is a big, gay mobile performance unit, glitterfully outfitted for socially-distanced performances and political actions. We're taking it out on the road for a Love Tour with truck stops around the city.
