The Edmonton Queen: The Final Voyage
A Drag Dynasty is about to be divined from the high life decade of decadence. It is destined, pre-ordained - and perfectly coiffed. Darrin Hagen, under the mentorship of his drag mother, Lulu LaRude, rose to the height of glamour as Gloria Hole, performer extraordinaire at the legendary Flashback nightclub. Beneath the layers of nightlife, stage lights and make-up lay the complex relationships of a chosen family. Both hilarious and moving, The Edmonton Queen: The Final Voyage once again invites readers to the exclusive party that was, and should not be missed again.

Amazing! I knew Darrin before knowing about his book, which is funny. Once I read it took me a while to connected Gloria Hole and Darrin Hagen, but I guess so much creativity has to express itself in every possible way.
After participating on the Edmonton Queer History Bus Tour and listen to his feverish talk about tales and histories that happened on the city I had to buy his book.
And surprised I was when I found out that one of my Vancouver friends, Patrick Monaghan is part of such a fabulous tale.
I guess, in the end, we are all part of his history, being there or not, it is a tale about our culture and history.
