Lady Bunny's Trans-Jester

Trans-Jester, drag icon Lady Bunny's live show in New York, has been extended and returned to the Stonewall Inn's intimate performance space. Bunny's show pokes ample fun at today's politicized and, in her opinion, overly PC culture.

"There's a theme with how we've gone overboard with political correctness," says Bunny, "but there is basically a lot of poo-poo, pee-pee, penis, and vagina jokes in there too."

A highlight of Trans-Jester is Bunny unabashedly working her way through each letter in the LGBTQ+ acronym. Her inspiration? Donald Trump, and that's not a joke. "When he gave that speech to the gay community and called it the LGBTQ community I was like, 'Oh, my God, I am less politically correct than Donald Trump! I thought it was still LGBT."
