By “we” he means his late-80s classmates at the Urban School, the private prep school 10 blocks or so from the Haight and Fillmore coffee shop. By “high” I assume he’s alluding to marijuana in some form or another, but I’m too intrigued by Wilsey’s instant openness and nostalgia to probe. Despite four other high schools (he never graduated), myriad other cities (he doesn’t come back to San Francisco very often anymore), and 25 or so intervening years (he’s pushing 45), Wilsey still grasps the vibe of his native hood with the exactitude of a lifelong resident.</span><span style="line-height: 20.799999237060547px;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="line-height: 20.799999237060547px;"> </span><span class="read-more"><a href="/pixel_vision/2014/08/27/master-observation-chatting-author-sean-wilsey"><strong>Read more &raquo;</strong></a></span></p> Authors David Kurlander Lit Sean Wilsey Wed, 27 Aug 2014 19:45:21 +0000 cheryl 31193 at http://www.ww.sfbg.com SF queer arts community mourns Arturo Galster, "drag queen's drag queen" http://www.ww.sfbg.com/pixel_vision/2014/08/27/sf-queer-arts-community-mourns-arturo-galster-drag-queens-drag-queen <div class="field field-type-aef-image field-field-uberimage"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="aef-image"><img src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/aef_image_original_format/arturogalster.jpg" alt="" title="" width="600" height="398"/><div class="aef-image-infos" style="width:px"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-gallery-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="780" height="960" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturopatsy.jpg?1409166918" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="235" height="348" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturo3.jpg?1409166926" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="634" height="960" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturo2.jpg?1409166940" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="617" height="960" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturopatsyposter.jpg?1409166955" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="1844" height="1236" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturo1.jpg?1409166971" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="600" height="380" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturonakedbrunch.jpg?1409166987" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="350" height="560" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturoagain.jpg?1409167388" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="900" height="725" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturocomposite.jpg?1409167597" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="576" height="864" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturotriumphant.jpg?1409167433" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_gallery_image" width="720" height="960" alt="" src="http://www.ww.sfbg.com/sites/default/files/arturoposter.jpg?1409168086" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><!--paging_filter--> <p>To call seminal SF perfomer and alpha theater aficionado <a href="https://www.facebook.com/arturo.galster" target="_blank">Arturo Galster</a> merely a "drag queen" is to do his range -- from the legendary <em><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103192/" target="_blank">Vegas in Space</a></em> movie and pitch-perfect live-sung Pasty Cline interpretations to his recent technicolor turns with the Thrillpeddlers -- a disservice.
