Question of the Week
" Have you ever thought about the "advantage" afforded those who are willing to utilize more brain bandwidth by not ignoring the "gender shadow"? It seems to me that gay/trans people often have more "depth of character". Is this the result of the extra introspection that comes with the territory or is it something else? "

While most people have known about Drag Queens for a long time, but only more recently heard about Drag Kings, they have, in fact, been around for just as long. In this special extended interview, two leading scholars who are studying the drag king phenomenon share with us some of their observations and findings. Donna Troka, organizer of the first International Drag King Extravaganza, joins with Kegan Allee, a graduate student in Women's Studies at San Diego State University whose thesis explores the feminist possibilities of drag, to explore the history of drag, including queens, kings, and 'bio' drag.
Donna Troka also co-edited "The Drag King Anthology", co-published simultaneously as "The Journal of Homosexuality."
