The Little Parrot

El Cotorrito (“the little parrot”)

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Program, Circa late 1960's
(the club opened in 1967)

Ran by entertainer Johnny Rodriguez
( not the country singer )

Other sources indicate that when the club opened drag performances were illegal in Puerto Rico,
but he got government license as he gave free graphic design work for the party in power

And, Johnny Rodriguez released a record album...with his female impersonators on the cover
