Happy Birthday, Ms. Vicky Vogue!

Ms. Vicky Vogue in Swimming With Lesbians.

O where would we be without Ms. Vicky Vogue? The empress emerita of Buffalo’s Imperial Court was born, according to legend, “in an attic hideaway where she stashed two of her sister’s dresses and a lipstick shoplifted from Woolworth’s.” Some 25-cent slings from Salvation Army , a floral scarf, and the rest in history.

Have you seen her at one of the dozen of fundraisers at which she’s performed? Did you get to know her in Swimming With Lesbians? Did she teach you how to do your makeup in her private drag salon?

Come celebrate the 77th birthday of this star in Buffalo’s nightlife firmament at Club Marcella (622 Main Street) on Friday, March 11. All the city’s finest drag queens will be there to pay homage. Doors open at 7pm, and Vicky’s girls will take the stage at 8pm. Admission is cheap at $7.
