#MIXTAPE082 – The Center’s Summer “Camp” Festival 2013 (The Barbarella Edit)



This mixtape is a special Homoground edit of the totally bumpin’ pre-show music used for all the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center’s Summer “Camp” Festival events.

From May 9 – June 13, the Center is sending you back to CAMP with their annual Summer “Camp” Festival. But not the kind of icky outdoor camp with tents and mosquitoes – instead, they’re serving up drag queens and NO WIRE HANGERS! Jump start your summer with fun, games and a celebration of the elusive queer aesthetic known simply as “camp.”

For this special Homoground edit, they’ve included musical tributes to some of their festival guests and events – Lou Reed’s “A Walk On The Wild Side” for Holly Woodlawn (“Holly came from Miami F-L-A…”), the bow-chicka-wow-wow “Match Game” theme and the delightful swingin’ 60s pop of the theme to the camp classic, “Barbarella.”
