Presenting a Birthday Funeral for Heroes!

Cake, coffin, gavel, choir, composers, live musical trolling!

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the much lauded homo poet Walt Whitman’s birth, a group of Philly queers and misfits known as The Bearded Ladies Cabaret gathers overlooking the Whitman Bridge to put this ancestor and his legacy on trial. Come with friends, complaints, heroes and villains alike. All are welcome.

Video by Ben Grinberg. Song lyrics by Walt Whitman and music by Emily Bate
