Drag is transformation, communication, and, above all, exaggeration where gender non-conformity is the plat du jour. This fearless book observes this increasingly complex world by exploring drag's journey - from the surprising, to the sophisticated, to the utterly bizarre - throu...gh the twentieth century and up to the present day. From Art Drag to Movie Drag, Popstar Drag to Drag Queen Drag, corralled into thematic chapters, Author Simon Doonan shines an international spotlight on the most influential gender-bending supernovas of all time. With witty text, dazzling photography and camp humour, this is the first flamboyant and poignant survey of drag culture. Drag is not just for fabulous queens and drag enthusiasts, but for anyone interested in gender fluidity and the culture surrounding it.
