"I want to be a drag queen. Do you have any advice?"
This is THE question i get asked the most. And the answers throughout my drag career (12-years performing and 22-yrs in the industry) are the inspirations for this book. What is this book? It is a love note to the art of drag, a study in the craft of it, and a gift to all those looking for how and where to begin to be a part of it.
i wrote this book for my female drag queens -- an umbrella term for all the ways we self-identify: faux queens, divas, hyper queens, femme performers, lady queens -- because we've had it the hardest trying to break through traditional drag arenas. But How To Be A Drag Queen is really a how-to guide and workbook for ANYONE looking to get started in the art of drag: draglesque, genderfuckers, and other nontraditional drag artists. i even had some drag kings tell me they love it. WHY? Because this book is about the art of drag, not the gender of it.
From tips to getting involved in your community to finding your signature drag style to creating your drag persona and then learning how to put it all together to create a show-stopping performance piece and experience for your audience, this book covers the entire spectrum of getting started -- and succeeding -- in the art of drag.
But you don't just get my advice. You also get advice from 19 of my favorite drag performers like Tommie Ross, Fauxnique, Miss Fame, RuPaul, and Jenna Skyy.
Broken up into 7 Chapters like "The Art of Getting Started," "The Art of Creating Your Drag Self," and "Your Drag Arsenal" with multiple sub-sections in each, each section ends with its own DragWerk so you can put what you're leaning into action immediately!
Whether you’re just starting out or are looking for ways to up the ante of your drag, this book will help you slay it all!
