Film of a 1960s drag cocktail party, picnic, and pool party

About This Item

Three events. The first is an evening event described in an onscreen sign as "Cocktail Party Honoring Empress Reba: Hostesses Princess Royal Fanny & Bobby." Partygoers mingle, celebrate, and show off their drag. Reba presides in a tinsel wig. At the second event, an outdoor picnic, participants camp and clown for the camera in front of brightly decorated art cars. One car's decor relates to the iconic San Francisco gay columnist "Sweet Lips." The third event is a pool party.
