The Drag King Book by Del LaGrace Volcano and Jack Halberstam

The Drag King Book by Del LaGrace Volcano and Jack Halberstam


First edition, minor stain on cover, otherwise in very good condition with very little wear. And iconic book of photographs by Del LaGrace Volcano, with words by Jack Halberstam, documenting drag kings (and transmasculine people) in the UK and USA during the 1990s. From the back cover: "What is a Drag King? Why have Drag Kings not been as numerous or as popular as their Drag Queen counterparts in popular culture? Are Drag Kings lesbians? THE DRAG KING BOOK tells you everything you've wanted to know and more about the lives and performances of contemporary male impersoators. The book profiles many different performers, among them San Francisco's larger-than-life Elvis Herselvis and New York's mackdaddy Dred, and presents interviews with Drag Kings alongside descriptions and analyses of actual shows. Lavishly illustrated with over 100 pictures by transgender photographer Del LaGrace Volcano, THE DRAG KING BOOK is a striking testament to the multiple forms of gender variance today."
