Female impersonation is the backbone and origin of drag. Just as there are many facets to gender, sexuality or race, there is great diversity in drag. Female illusion, club kid, glamorous, clown, gender fuck … just because you look like a dude in a dress doesn’t make it art. Art is art. My looks and performances are my art and they have been conceptual, creative and glamorous. Just because something looks effortless doesn’t mean it is. In drag, as in life, the unseen is where the real art lies.
