Sketches chronicle everything from hush-hush trysts between an Irish chauffeur and Jewish banker in 1920s Southampton to male shenanigans in balmy ´70s bathhouses to the above-mentioned transvestite, Bunny the Drag Queen, belting out Garlands Somewhere Over the Rainbow mid-Stonewall Riot soliloquy. Now thats history done right.
