Text:An exhibition of photos documenting many of New Zealand's iconic drag queens and transsexuals has opened with a hiss and a roar in New Plymouth. More than 200 people crowded into the Govett-Brewster Gallery to see Fiona Clark's exhibition more than two decades after some of the photographs were banned from exhibition in New Zealand because of their content. The exhibition included images from the seventies and more up to date photos and video footage taken by Clark in the past year. The Mayor of New Plymouth and Transsexual MP Georgina Beyer officiated and a number of the drag queens and transsexuals portrayed also made the trip to New Plymouth for the opening. Clark's exhibition, titled Go Girl, is on show until 8 December.
