Legends of Drag
Doris Fish and the Sluts A Go-Go were a troupe of drag queens who were wildly popular in San Francisco in the 1980s. They were the creative brainchild of Australian-born drag queen Doris Fish (1952-1991), who brought the Sydney drag aesthetic with her to San Francisco in the mid-1970s. They filmed the greatest drag movie ever made, Vegas In Space, directed by Phillip R. Ford.
The original members were the trio of friends, Doris, Tippi and Miss X, with filmmaker Phillip R Ford playing the honorary straight man (as well as producer and director) to the group. Freda Lay, Jane Dornacker, Sandelle Kincade and Ginger Quest are just some of the talents who also performed with the Sluts. The 2023 biography “Who Does That Bitch Think She Is: Doris Fish and the Rise of Drag” by Craig Seligman tells the story of Doris and the Sluts with great detail and insight and is the roadmap for this website.
