Brush Arbor Gurlz at Montana Two-Spirit Gathering


Video from the 2007 Montana Two-Spirit Gathering in Seeley Lake, MT.

The Montana Two-Spirit Gathering is a weekend retreat for Native American Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people, their partners, family and friends. This yearly gathering provides a safe, healthy, drug and alcohol free environment. It’s purpose is to encourage all people to heal the damage wrought by racism, sexism, ageism, colonialism, ableism, transphobia, and homophobia and the negative impacts these have on health.

Every year the Montana Two-Spirit Gathering hosts a No-Talent Show where national Two-Spirits perform before an audience. Landa Lakes (Chickasaw), drag mother of the San Francisco bay area Native American drag troup the Brush Arbor Gurlz, is the drag-queen-in- training in this video. She is joined by Cleo Torres (as Dorothy), Miso Hornay (as Cher and Madonna), and Samantha Richards (as Divine).
