Join Regent Monarchs Emperor XXXI Ron and Empress XXXVI Anne Tique and the Imperial Court of New York for 12 Drags of XMAS on Saturday, December 10th, 2022 in New York City. Proceeds for this incredible event to benefit the Coco Lachine Scholarship Fund.
Wendy Stuart will be performing a “Covid Christmas Medley” for the event.
The primary mission of the Imperial Court of New York is to raise funds for LGBT and HIV/AIDS, Equality and LGBTQ youth-related charities. The Imperial Court is a non-profit, raising money for many worthy causes through production of entertaining fund-raising events throughout the year. Through the roles of Court and Royalty, they are able to raise much needed social awareness,education, community, education, community outreach and monies for deserving charities on local, national, and international levels.
Wendy Stuart is an author, celebrity interviewer, model, filmmaker and hosts “If These Walls Could Talk” with Tym Moss, and TriVersity Talk, a weekly web series with featured guests discussing their lives, activism and pressing issues in the LGBTQ Community.
Dubbed by her friends “the Kathy Griffin of fashion”, Wendy’s hilarious, occasionally poignant story of how she became – and has remained for 30 years – one of the most successful “fit” models in the country (that size 8 you’re wearing might very well be based on Wendy Stuart Kaplan’s figure), is told with a Griffin-esque sense of humor untarnished by malice. From studying voodoo in Nigeria through years of taking mind-numbing jobs just to pay the rent, to her success in the present day where she can say of the women’s underwear sold at Wal-Mart, modeled on her size eight body, “I cover the asses of the masses.”
As an actress, print model, and stand up comedienne, Wendy has worked in film, television and theatre and has made appearances on many syndicated and daytime talk shows. Her fun personality and quick sense of humor made her a standout guest whether she was modeling unusual wedding gowns on Geraldo or selling shoes on Speigel TV. Her ecclectic career also includes being voted Mrs. NY, going on to compete in the National Mrs. America pageant.
12 Drags of XMAS takes place on Saturday, 12/10/22 at 7:00 PM at Pieces, 8 Christopher Street, New York, NY, 10014. There is a $10 suggested donation.
