Stumbling over the rainbow and tripping on the stars and stripes, Rocky (Ariel Speedwagon) and Rhoda (Damien Luxe), America’s most-beloved lesbian performance art legends, bring you this one-night-only flag-stravaganza about american pride and gay shame, inclusion, and the forgotten corners of our past.

Hear the story of the forgotten colors of the first gay flag! See anti-nationalist acrobatics! Songs! Dances! Lesbian infighting! Joined by some very special surprise guests rocking the handbells, Rocky and Rhoda will have your hankies out in no time — they flag left, how about you?
