Charlie Horse is a weekly "punk rock" drag show staged at The Cinch on Polk Street, hosted by 2004 Miss Trannyshack title holder Anna Conda.

Trannyshack is a monthly drag club taking place at DNA Lounge in San Francisco. It was started by drag queen Heklina in 1996 as an offshoot of Klubstitute, and was a weekly fixture at The Stud bar in San Francisco for 12 years, drawing large crowds on a regular basis. The Tuesday night performances at The Stud ended on 12 August 2008, with Trannyshack resuming as a monthly event at DNA Lounge in March 2010.
The Trannyshack stage has hosted many celebrities including Lady Gaga, Gwen Stefani, Mary Wilson of the Supremes and more. In the early years of the club, Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters lived in San Francisco and performed frequently at Trannyshack before moving to New York in 1999.
