Watch Justin Vivian Bond Sing Bambi Lake's 'Golden Age of Hustlers' In Magical New Video

It doesn’t get much better than this: A new video hit the internets today featuring the amazing Justin Vivian Bond performing legendary punk transsexual chanteuse Bambi Lake’s song “Golden Age of Hustlers.”  

The song and the visuals in the video — directed by Silas Howard (of queer punk band Tribe 8) and Erin Greenwell) and featuring transgender writer Kate Bornstein and drag queens Merrie Cherry and Untitled Queen alongside Bond and archival images of Lake — capture the 1970’s gay hustler scenes of pre-HIV/AIDS era prostitution on Polk St in San Francisco from an insider’s experience.
