Born in Minneapolis, raised in Upstate New York, Massachusetts and Iceland and now she is the Queen of San Francisco. Meet Heklina. : SF’s infamous drag performer and creator of the legendary Trannyshack and the unforgettable (and The Social Life favorite) Daytime Realness.
For over 12 years, Heklina has brought audiences together for Trannyshack. The night incorporates drag talent and performance art from the delightful to the shocking. Out Magazine named it one of the Top 10 reasons to move to San Francisco, something we could not agree with more. At this current moment in time, Heklina is taking a bit of a hiatus from Trannyshack to focus on her theatre shows.
Starting on December 6, Heklina’s holiday theatre project, Golden Girls will be playing all month long at the Victoria Theatre. Tickets can be purchased online. This show is not to be missed! We’ll be sitting front row.
We’ll see the return of Trannyshack in February of 2012, kicking off with their STAR SEARCH SHOW. Shortly afterward a new season of Daytime Realness will be back in March. Get ready for 2013 folks; Heklina will be giving it to us all year long.
