Friday Nights
 
5:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.

Philly’s best gender benders take over the Museum. The Bearded Ladies Cabaret take a stab at queering our collection inspired by the one and only Barbra Streisand. Participate in a detour with Kate Nyx, an opinionated showgirl, seamstress, and songwriter whose passion for burlesque fantasy and sex-positive feminism fuels her daily. Red 40 and the Last Groovement kick off the evening and cap off the night with their funkadelic, one of a kind sound.

5:30 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.: Red 40 & The Last Groovement
5:45 p.m. & 6:30 p.m.: “Detour” Kate Nyx
