After a more than a decade-long hiatus, Wigstock returned to NYC last weekend with a splash! With glamour and fanfare, Wigstock: The Cruise took to the harbor last Sunday, packed to the brim with fabulous-ness.

Fusion: The event, hosted by Wigstock co-founder and drag legend Lady Bunny aboard the Hornblower Infinity (what did you call me), reunited classic Wigstock performers like Flotilla DeBarge, H.R.H. Princess Diandra, Sweetie, Linda Simpson, and more.

Hornblower Infinity dazzled with the spirit of Wigstock as she sailed around the harbor – resplendent with legendary drag royalty and performers on each of the 3 decks on board.
