The Invasion of the Pines is an annual event held on Fire Island that has become an important part of the island's drag culture. The event takes place on the Fourth of July and involves a parade of drag performers, who make their way from the neighboring town of Cherry Grove to the upscale community of Fire Island Pines. The parade, which began in 1976, is a playful take on the American Revolution, with performers dressed in elaborate costumes that pay homage to the founding fathers.
The Invasion of the Pines is a celebration of drag and LGBTQ+ culture, as well as a way to push back against the elitism and exclusivity that has historically been associated with Fire Island's Pines community. The event has grown in popularity over the years and now attracts thousands of visitors to the island each summer. It is a testament to the enduring power of drag as a form of resistance and a means of bringing communities together.
So in honor of pride month, on today's episode, we are thrilled to welcome a true star of the drag scene. This queen has dazzled audiences with her stunning performances, incredible costumes, and unmatched charisma. She's a true icon of the LGBTQ+ community in Fire Island and a shining example of the power of self-expression and acceptance. Please join us in welcoming the one and only Pixie Aventura.
