  • The Fire Island Drag Invasion at Cherry Grove Ice Palace

    http;//fierth.com – It was the Summer of 1976 when a drag Queen named Terry Warren Panzi was denied entry into a restaurant in the Pines , at the time a more Affluent and and convservative community. When Warren’s friends in Cherry Grove heard what had happened, they too dressed up in drag, and, on July 4, 1976, with Cherry Grove’s 1976 Homecoming Queen Thom Hansen (aka Panzi) in the lead, sailed to the Pines by water taxi. The boatload of drag queens that stormed into the Pines that day—to a surprised but exuberant welcome—was the first “invasion,” an event now repeated each year.
