      In her lifetime, Flawless Sabrina has been an artist, a psychologist, an activist, and an icon of drag performance. Her apartment on East 73rd Street has become equally legendary as a transformative space and a hub, where she continues to practice the art of the tarot as passed down to her by her grandmother. In 2014, Sabrina performed over one hundred readings in conjunction with the Whitney Biennial. Giving fifteen-minute readings in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, Sabrina’s tarot practice is informed by her unique insight and experience between worlds.
