A Landing on the Bayou, a performance lecture by Houston-based artists Nick Vaughan and Jake Margolin, is a multi-media artist’s lecture/performance that explores Houston’s diverse, rich, and political drag scene in the years between the Stonewall Riots and the beginning of the AIDS epidemic (1969-1985).

Drawing from audio recordings of interviews the artists conducted with a wide range of community members including Hot Chocolate, Tasha Kohl, Ray Hill, and Mary Hooper, the piece celebrates the legendary and amateur drag performers who together set the stage for Houston’s role in the LGBT rights movement and held the community together during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis, raising funds through their unbounded generosity and raising spirits through their luminous performances.
