The Fop : Love & Lust In Victorian Queer New York Mia Kunter Productions

About This Show

Take a bawdy romp through the streets and saloons of Victorian New York with gangsters, trans folks, drag queens, hustlers, serial killers, widows, and urchins of Lower Manhattan’s immigrant clans. The Fop delivers a panoply of lusty adventures: watch the gender-fluid past come alive as a fabulous cast of LGBTQ stars strut their stuff.
