It’s the return of Trannyshack’s Annual Star Search competition!
‘Tis the season when relatively new drag queens perform for a title that’s grown to become VERY important in the world of San Francisco Drag. The upcoming event marks the 13th annual Trannyshack Star Search, and it promises to be the biggest and fiercest competition yet.
Over the years many of the event’s past contestants have gone on to become legendary performers on the local drag circuit including Metal Patricia, Landa Lakes, Holy McGrail, Elijah Minnelli, Lady Bear, L. Ron Hubby, Kegel Kater, Pollo Del Mar, Faux Pas, Miss Rahni, Anjie Myma, Cousin Wonderlette, Sandra O. Noshi-D’int and many, many more.
Hostesses Heklina and Peaches Christ created the event to be a local talent search for new drag superstars. And the show has NEVER failed to deliver on that premise. Witness a brand new crop of fresh-faced, and attention-starved contestants compete for the Miss Star Search crown and be there to say “I saw her first”!
Come one come all to the 15th Annual Trannyshack Reno cross-state road-show!
PEACHES CHRIST returns as this year’s “Den Mother” and is proud to be hosting the buses and wrangling the giant pack of traveling drag queens, kings, and the yet to be defined. And now’s your chance to be one of the lucky travelers! There only a limited number of tickets (for $130), and they go very fast, so do not hesitate… or you WILL NOT make the cut. And for the very first time EVER Heklina herself will be riding the bus with all the filth, fury and fabulousness. Hekles has always heard how crazy things are on the buses — let’s show her the legends are true…
This year’s assistant hostesses include filth princesses Renttecca, Ambrosia Salad, Lady Bear, and special filth guest star Christeene.
Included in the link below is all the information you’ll need to properly attend, as well as, some advice to first-timers.

“I just show up and do what I do. And for me it has to be real — anything I do, I don’t care what it is. On Halloween, I can remember, John Carpenter’s first and only real direction to me was, ‘I want people to believe this is a real person.’ All I care about is trying to make anything real — and then because I’m brave I’ll try anything.”
-Jamie Lee Curtis
It’s the Tuesday before Halloween. Perched on the balcony of my apartment, I’ve got a warm cup of coffee in hand and a less than expertly carved Jack-O-Lantern in the chair to my right. There’s an autumn chill, but I really don’t notice. I’ve been too busy musing over the upcoming holiday.
For horror fans the world over, Halloween is something sacred and celebratory. It’s the time when we’re not the minority, but the ruling class. The order of things may return to the squares on November 1st, but for one night, the freaks and beasts run the show. That such mirth also happens to occur amidst the wonderfully atmospheric scenery of fall is just the icing on the cake. Read More…

Get ready to shout at the devil with a Rockin’ Big Surprise Celebrity Guest Star in a legendary appearance as this year’s Costume Contest Judge! Size queens rejoice!
For those of you not in the know every Thursday night, music, creatures and cocktails come together for NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences. Usually one explores exhibits and aquarium displays while sipping creative cocktails, letting exotic animals from around the world transport you to the tropics, Tibet, and dozens of other remote destinations. Special planetarium shows take you even farther afield. Each week features a live band or DJ, and a unique theme – from salsa dancing to sustainable seafood and beyond. But of course this month, Peaches Christ is there to make it a something a little bit different… okay, a lot different.
For just days before Halloween, NightLife will be overrun with zombies!

“Smooth the wrinkles from your brow my dear, your face is so much prettier when smiling.”
We here at PeachesChrist.com are proud to announce that for one-night only legendary San Francisco filmmaker and event promoter Marc Huestis is presenting one of the greatest camp movie classics of all-time… THE BAD SEED! And, of course, in true Huestis fashion, the show wouldn’t be complete without bringing along a major star. In person for Q&A will be none other than the scene-stealing villain from The Bad Seed, Patty McCormack herself!
If you’ve never seen this film before, now is the time to change that. There’s a small group of films that are so magical when seen not just on a screen the size of the Castro, but more importantly, with a Castro audience. The Bad Seed is one of those movies. The whole evening is a night to remember, with not just Ms. McCormack, but a whole menagerie of San Francisco stars.
