The two-part video Gender Cruise on the Circle Line involves Brenda and Glennda leading a group of drag queens, drag kings, and other gender nonconforming people on a three-hour ride on the Circle Line boat around Manhattan.

An episode of The Brenda and Glennda Show, hosted by Brenda Sexual and Glennda Orgasm. Featuring Queen Esther, Felony, Kassandra Kaye, Bedda Lettuce, Winona Lettuce, Charles Lofton, Vivienne Maricevic, Chris Martin, Emily Nahmanson, Danny Torr, Miss Understood, Jack Waters, and Jon Winkleman. Directed by Stevin Michels. This show was made possible in part by funds from the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art supported by The Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts.

"The Circle Line is a tourist attraction, so the point of our intervention was to bring drag/trans/gender visibility to a public space."
