The Return of Anna Conda
The infamous San Francisco drag queen Anna Conda made a return to public life last Saturday after some serious surgery.
In truth, the serious surgery was on her back, but she decided looking like she was recovering from cosmetic procedures would be more glamorous and heck of a lot funnier.
She was hosting a beer benefit in the back patio of an old dive bar called The Mix, which opens at 6AM every morning in the Castro neighborhood for serious alcoholics. (Click here for their entertaining website.)
The beer bust was to benefit a Tenderloin homeless group called Community Housing Partnerships (click here for their site)...
...which was being represented by its Executive Director Jeff Kositsky (above).
The Mix lived up to its name this particular afternoon with drag queens, lesbians, straight women, and gay guys all freely intermingling.
A couple of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were there to offer support to their recovering friend...
...along with one of their Postulants (above), who was handling out free lube and condoms to everyone.
It was a seriously giddy afternoon.
