Waters, John: Summer Camps, Sep 2017

Cult filmmaker John Waters is going into the actual camp business — summer camp.

Screenings of his cult classics like Pink Flamingos and Polyester aren’t for the youngsters, so this weekend-long camp experience is for adults only.

John Waters is one of the subjects of my new book, Gay Directors/Gay Films (second printing, Columbia University Press, 2016).

Gay Directors, Gay Films? By Emanuel Levy (Columbia University Press, August 2016)

An actual camp in Kent, Connecticut, complete with cabins and lake, is hosting the offbeat event September 22-24, with tickets starting at $499.

Fans of the director, who has been called “the Pope of trash” can participate in Bloody Mary Bingo, a costume contest, a dance party, and Hairspray karaoke.
