In the final ten minutes of a little known documentary from 1968, the world was introduced to the powerhouse that was Crystal LaBeija - founder of the House of LaBeija and originator of the underground ballroom scene. That film, "The Queen," was an early look at the drag pageant circuit and Crystal's appearance, though brief, packs the most punch. After losing to a less deserving queen, Crystal let's her and anyone in her path have it in a tirade that still stings five decades later. Recently, the audio of that tirade was sampled in Frank Ocean's "Endless."
Honor Crystal and her lasting legacy in this new tee.
