Solo show at gallery RAVOT SF. March – April, extended to May 2018.
A collection of photographs exploring modern drag in San Francisco.
Gooch is fast to point out that ‘drag’ means a lot of things in San Francisco. There’s the dramatic and the grotesque, there’s the funny and the very weird. Women perform drag, gender non-conforming people perform drag. It’s a big tent. “Everybody was invited and included to be on the stage,” he says.

WORKS ON METAL
The show features a fascinating collection of images that underscore the talents of the drag community. Many familiar names from the Bay Area are included, such as Heklina, who’s dressed in a short skirt while she stands in what appears to be a jail cell, her mouth open as if screaming. Next to Heklina hangs the elegant Honey Mahogany. D’Arcy Drollinger and Sue Casa are seen sprawled across a flight of stairs as if falling down.
