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.

Band Members (left to right): Shawna Love, Tori Tait, Emme Yarwood, Marilyn Mitchell, and Sarafina Maraschino.
