 I wish to thank everyone who has donated and supported The Cockettes Photo Book Project.

This book project has received tremendously positive attention from so many people, the video has been viewed over 1500 times!  So indeed, this book will be published, one way or another.  The project is already underway.

The goal still has a long way to go but anything can happen on this, the last day of the campaign.  If the project does not get fully funded by KS, then if you wish to re-donate, I have set up an alternate funding route on GoFundMe:

I will be adding the same rewards packages that are here in this current campaign.

Also, if you wish to contact me directly for questions or personal updates on the status of the book, you can contact me here:

This book project is an important part of the history of American Culture as The Cockettes could not have happened in any other social climate than within the democracy of the great USA.  The era in which we grew was one of complete personal freedom which I now feel is at risk.  There needs to be evidence of that different time, to be reminded of what we are all capable of; individuality, equality in race and gender, authenticity of artistic expression and the ability to be experimental without caring what others may think.  Our group consciousness was very powerful and produced a lasting contribution to Pop Culture.  We came from a place of Communal Love and Support.  Future generations need to see the trajectory of this American aesthetic, from the Beats to the Punks and The Cockettes are a vital link within that strong chain.

Thank you again, Fayette Hauser
