Drag is transformation, communication and, above all, exaggeration, where gender non-conformity is the plat du jour. Drag: The Complete Story observes this increasingly complex world by exploring drag’s journey through the twentieth century.
Corralled into thematic chapters, including glamour drag, art drag, butch drag, black drag, historical drag, comedy drag and popstar drag, this book is aflamboyant and poignant survey of drag culture.
Drag: The Complete Story is not just for fabulous queens and drag enthusiasts, but for anyone interested in gender fluidity and the culture surrounding it.
“You come for the glamorous pictures and stay for the sizzling prose. Doonan writes like an angel with a sword: beautifully and provocatively.”
