Drag: The Complete Story (A Look at the History and Culture of Drag)
Drag is transformation, communication, and, above all, exaggeration where gender non-conformity is the plat du jour. This fearless book observes this an increasing number of complex world by exploring drag’s journey – from the surprising, to the sophisticated, to the utterly unusual – in the course of the twentieth century and as much as the present day.
From Glamour Drag to Comedy Drag, Art Drag to Butch Drag, corralled into thematic chapters, writer Simon Doonan shines an international spotlight at the most influential gender-bending supernovas of all time.
With witty text, dazzling photography and camp humour, that is the first flamboyant and poignant survey of drag culture. Drag isn’t just for fabulous queens and drag enthusiasts, but for any person excited about gender fluidity and the culture surrounding it.
