Drag

It was brought to my attention that my reading list is very cis/hetero-centric. The glaring omission to the Clash Clown stew is Drag. Drag dovetails so cleanly -- as a highly visual / physical performance art, an unbelievably politicized statement undergoing fascist interrogation in America today, a creative examination of power dynamics, a counter cultural response from the societal margin.


That's all I got for now. I'm pretty run-of-the-mill basic when it comes to my drag knowledge. Sure, a few years back ellena and I binged half a dozen seasons of Drag Race. Paris is Burning is on the watchlist. I know Divine is cool, but all I've seen is Hairspray. More dirt for the research mountain.
