This is a tribute to an artist - considered the last drag queen in the final days of Barcelona’s “Barrio Chino” red light district – who continues to take to the stage every night at the age of 90. As his beloved poet Federico García Lorca wrote, in verse: The ladybirds of the South sing on the roofs! Gilda Love will also continue to do so.
