In a city that prides itself (see what we did there?) on having one of the most prominent and active LGBT communities in the world, how do you determine the best place to see a drag show? By going to the place with the most glitter! Described by one Yelp reviewer as "a slightly skeezy gay bar from the mid-'70s, left untouched for 40 years, and revisited in 2012," what Aunt Charlie's Lounge lacks in size and location, it makes up for by hosting some of the best and intimate drag shows in S.F.

Twice a month, this hole-in-the-wall bar known for its cheap (and stiff) drinks and raucous entertainment hosts The Dream Queens Revue, a drag show filled with "outrageousness, glitz, and fabulicious-ness." We don't know exactly what that means, but we love it. Featuring members of the Grand Ducal Council, a camp-oriented nonprofit that raises money for charities, and a token male performer (as in, a man performing masculinity), this unforgettable cabaret show is a must-sequined spectacle that's not to be missed.

The Dream Queens Revue starts on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 9:30 p.m. at Aunt Charlie's Lounge, 133 Turk (at Taylor), S.F. Admission is free.
