Heklina hosts Mothership to RENO

Once a year The Mothership descends upon Reno and unleashes a full blown Drag Queen invasion featuring some of San Francisco’s best (and worst) female impersonators. MOTHERSHIP TO RENO returns to 1up for their 20th annual field trip on Saturday, April 15th

For nearly 20-years hosts Heklina has curated some of San Francisco’s most notorious drag acts for the Reno stage. Formerly known as TrannyShack, this year’s MOTHERSHIP TO RENO is sure to have you doing double-takes all night long as these fine “ladies” invade 1up in a dancing, singing, extravaganza you will never forget.

Doors open at 10pm for our 21+ friends. Entry is only $10.




“If San Francisco is truly the ‘Paris of the West’ then Heklina is the mastermind responsible for our very own ‘Moulin Rouge.’ Heklina founded Trannyshack back in 1996 at The Stud. It remains the longest running drag event in San Francisco, and she has hosted the show from its inception. Trannyshack is pure theatre, both innovative and edgy.” – Left Magazine

“The Duboce Park sidewalk doesn’t have a red carpet, but when 6’ 2” platinum blond Peaches Christ strolls toward the park’s clubhouse, you know a big show is about to begin.” – Hoodline.com
