The “Barbary Coast” referred to an area of early San Francisco notorious for saloons, brothels, and general lawlessness. In 1863, San Francisco passed a law reminiscent of anti-drag, anti-LGBTQ legislation widespread today, criminalizing persons wearing “a dress not belonging to his or her sex” in public. In this work-part live performance, part video production-Cummings questions a history of prejudice within a well-known progressive safe haven.
