In the video Glennda does DC, Glennda interviews people in Washington D.C. about the topic of gay rights. As the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Conference is going on simaltaneously, she asks people if they were aware of this, and if they believe that there should be a gay rights bill. These questions lead to conversations about the lack of public awareness of gay rights, whether or not America is a free country, and why congress has been doing nothing to support the gay and lesbian community. Glennda also deals with police homophobia from Ranger Rick at the Lincoln Memorial. Interspersed throughout the video are clips from the panel that Brenda and Glennda were on at the D.C. Conference discussing drag queen and king activism and rights both within and outside of the gay community. They address issues of assimilation, dragphobia, and liberation. 


An episode of The Brenda and Glennda Show, hosted by Glennda Orgasm and Brenda Sexual. This show was made possible in part by funds from the Franklin Furnace Fund for performance art supported by Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts.
