To celebrate the 150th birthday of Oscar Wilde, the Oscar Wilde Society of America  (www.owsoa.org) held its annual festival. 

A  private performance by urban dramatist Doric Wilson and cast of his play Now She Dances! - "a topsy turvy retelling of Wilde’s Salome... Incisive wit, theatrical flair and sophisticated gay consciousness combines with dramatic flourish in this subtle scrutiny of homophobia." - John Deverre, Mandate.

 Other events included a guided walking tour of the places visited by Wilde during his year long stay in America;  lunch gathering at a historic setting for talks and Latin pop star Jade Esteban Estrada performing part  of his hilarious and glittering solo extravaganza ICONS: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 1, of course, as Oscar Wilde.

A second short tour concluded with a visit to the Oscar Wilde bookstore .
