T-A -double-B- O-O. Hellow!
I think the larger answer involves the idea of the whole festival. It does represent a real steadfast presence of the bohemia, tollerance, concentration of creativity and diverse ways of an art-community that of the East Village has contained for decades. It's not a kind of civic temperament-management excersize where once in a year the remnants of those characteristics are allowed to act out.Nonsence! The state/city of New York, despite of all it's poop politics, poop mayors, and poop police has always survived every type of scatalogical situation. New York has witnessed the birth of many cultural events. The East Village is truly a New York landmark. And Wigstock a decadent event.
