Recently he was Alice, First Lady of Earth in Charles Ludlam’s, Conquest of the Universe or When Queens Collide at LaMama to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Ridiculous.
A celebrated fixture on the New York 80's club scene as Tish Gervais, The Girl With Something Extra and The Bombshell of Rock Roll, he dazzled the New York nightlife performing in the most exciting clubs of that decade, Limelight, Palladium, Danceteria, Area, Pyramid and new Studio 54. As a playwright he was a 2000 GLAAD award nominee for his Off-Broadway autobiographical play: Boys Don’t Wear Lipstick.
He first arrived in NYC as a teenager in 1974 to start a new life. Some of his many incarnations he’s been a questionably queer boy, a married trans woman and nightlife trans icon. Presently he lives proudly as a beloved openly gay man. As a long-term survivor of HIV he advocates on behalf of all LGBTQ generations. In 2016, Brian created Queer Stages an LGBTQ playreading group who's mission is to preserve and present LGBTQ themed plays and playwrights for current and future generations.
