The Cockettes is a documentary about the psychedelic 1970s San Francisco drag queen troupe who decked themselves out in gender-bending drag and tons of glitter for a series of legendary midnight musicals at the Palace Theater in North Beach.
Admired by Truman Capote, The Cockettes performed all-singing, all-dancing extravaganzas featuring elaborate costumes, rebellious sexuality and exuberant chaos.
