Justine was Arias’ first drag persona, conceived for an Andy Warhol Halloween party. Justine was such a hit that Arias incorporated the persona into his regular schedule of events and performances. Graceland was a mainstay of the gay nightclub scene in Vancouver during the late 1980s and 1990s, with their “bad boy nights” featuring live male go-go dancers. This poster, in striking red and black, captures the moment that set the stage for the rest of Arias' career.
