Rupaul “condrag-ulated” nightlife queen Susanne Bartsch on a new film about her life via video at NewFest.
“Susanne, you gave me my big break at the Copacabana back in the ’80s, and today you continue to inspire all of us,” the drag icon said at the “Queen of the Night” screening.
“You provided a platform, and safe spaces, where LGBT artists can express themselves . . . You brought our tribe together.”
Afterward, Amanda Lepore performed at Top of the Standard.
