  Lipstick Conspiracy

Lipstick Conspiracy
 
Lipstick Conspiracy is a San Francisco-based all-transgender band founded in 2003. Though still relatively new, the group has been welcomed by critics. The Portland Mercury characterized the group as rock-n-roll's first all-tranny band, the San Francisco Bay Guardian named them "Best Girl Band" of 2004, and The SF Observer praised their "simple guitar riffs" and "punchy, rhyme-induced lyrics."

Here, band members tell us about their inspiration, music, and the obstacles they have faced and share some advice for queer bands that are just starting out.
