Using the word ‘tranny’ when referring to transexuals or transvestites is not politically correct any more. Bowing to pressure from transgender activists, the internationally known drag event “Trannyshack” has changed its name to “T-Shack.” San Francisco drag show promoter, producer and host Heklina talks with Marilyn Pittman about why and what it means for Heklina’s brand, her club, and her politics.
