Camel                     Handler. Heroin Addict. Bank Robber. Federal Penitentiary Inmate. Mannequin Refinisher. Waitress again. In the end                     Dogaholic and Digital Artist with a terminal illness. Most of her partners have died. Doctors say she will join them.

                    Andy Warhol’s oeuvre during the first decade of his career, before he became the godfather of pop, proved to be                     enormously influential on his life’s work, yet remains little known.

In the first of                     these series, Warhol drew an ensemble of spirited women derived from photographs of both stage divas and men in                     drag.

                    ISBN 0814712533 (ISBN13: 9780814712535)

                    Men have been dressing as women on stage for hundreds of years, dating back to the thirteenth century when the                     Church forbade the appearance of female actors but condoned that of men and boys disguised as the opposite sex.                     Forms of travestism can be traced back to the dawn of theatre and are found in all corners of the world, notably in China                     and Japan. In recent years, of course, drag has witnessed a dramatic and widespread revival. Newsday recently                     observed, People are talking about all those fabulous heterosexual film idols who now can't seem to wait to get tarted up                     in drag and do their screen bits as fishnet queens.

                    ISBN 0062863002 (ISBN13: 9780062863003)

                    As someone who has deconstructed life’s hilarious façade, RuPaul has broken "the fourth wall" to expand on the                     concept of mind, body, and spirit. This unique perspective has allowed RuPaul to break the shackles of self-imposed                     limitations, but reader beware, this is a daily practice that requires diligence and touchstones to keep you walking in the                     sunshine of the spirit. Once you’re willing to look beyond the identity that was given to you, a hidden world of possibilities                     will open its doors. Throughout the history of humans on this planet, there’ve always been shaman, seers, and mediums                     who are able to interpret both high and low frequencies and remind humans to look beyond the surface for the truth of                     who we really are. And who we really are is an extension of the power that created the universe (aka: God in drag).

                    Why would women want to perform as men? Why is gender crossing so compelling, whether it happens onstage or in                     everyday life? What can drag performance teach, and what aesthetic, political, and personal questions does it raise?                     Performance artist Diane Torr has been experimenting with the performance of gender for thirty years---exploring                     everything from feminist go-go dancing to masculine power play. One of the key pioneers of "drag king" performance,                     Torr has been celebrated internationally for her gender transformation workshops, in which she has taught hundreds of                     ordinary women how to pass as men on city streets around the world.

                    Sanford Stewart sure doesn't. In fact, he pretty much believes in the exact opposite, thanks to the Homo Jock King. It                     seems Darren Mayne lives for nothing more than to create chaos in Sandy’s perfectly ordered life, just for the hell of it.                     Sandy despises him, and nothing will ever change his mind. Or so he tells himself. It's not until the owner of Jack It—the                     club where Sandy performs as drag queen Helena Handbasket—comes to him with a desperate proposition that Sandy                     realizes he might have to put his feelings about Darren aside. Because Jack It will close unless someone can convince                     Andrew Taylor, the mayor of Tucson, to keep it open. Someone like Darren, the mayor’s illegitimate son. The foolproof                     plan is this: seduce Darren and push him to convince his father to renew Jack It’s contract with the city.

                    Everything you need to know about cult television show RuPaul's Drag Race - from seasons 1 to 9, including All Stars.                     Bursting onto the scene over two decades ago (with smash hit 'Supermodel of the World') RuPaul has been confounding                     critics to clear her own path over the many years since.

Rupaul's Drag Race and Philosophy

                    December 3rd, 2019
                    ISBN 0812694783 (ISBN13: 9780812694789)

                    As RuPaul has said, this is the Golden Age of Drag--and that's chiefly the achievement of RuPaul's Drag Race, which in                     its eleventh year is more popular than ever, and has now become fully mainstream in its appeal. The show has an                     irresistible allure for folks of all persuasions and proclivities. Yet serious or philosophical discussion of its exponential                     success has been rare. Now at last we have RuPaul's Drag Race and Philosophy, shining the light on all dimensions of                     this amazing phenomenon: theories of gender construction and identity, interpretations of RuPaul's famous quotes and                     phrases, the paradoxes of reality shows, the phenomenology of the drag queen, and how the fake becomes the truly                     authentic. The book includes a Foreword by the original "Gender Outlaw" Kate Bornstein.

                    ISBN 0452273447 (ISBN13: 9780452273443)

                    In a story that crosses The Parent Trap with The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, we meet Mitchell Sayer, a                     stodgy, successful gay attorney. Mitchell's well-ordered life is thrown into upheaval when his socialite mother drops a                     double bombshell en route to a Buddhist convent. Mitchell, she confesses, was adopted - and Mitchell has an identical                     twin. This long-lost, separated-at-birth sibling isn't hard to find ... but he may be hard to take. For while his driver's                     license reads Donald Sweet, he's better known in Chicago's demimonde as Kitten Kaboodle, the gloriously gowned,                     stupendously stiletto-heeled star of the Tam-Tam Club's "all-girl" review. Recovering from the shock, Mitchell doffs his                     Armani jacket, loosens his Hermes tie, and prepares for a battle of the wills. He sees it as his mission to haul Donald out                     of Bob Mackie knockoffs and into the real world - or at least into flat heels.

Burned by her traumatic past, Angel is new to the                     drag world, new to ball culture, and has a yearning inside of her to help create family for those without. When she falls in                     love with Hector, a beautiful young man who dreams of becoming a professional dancer, the two decide to form the                     House of Xtravaganza, the first-ever all-Latino house in the Harlem ball circuit.

If                     you are a fan of filmmaking in the raw, a devotee of drag queens in the flesh, or simply curious about how to make an                     impossible dream come true (complete with a deliriously happy ending), Making Priscilla will make your day.

The resultant fallout might best be described as something like the Iraqi version of Jerry Springer: The                     Opera. And that was just the beginning.

                    Imagine a pied piper singing in falsetto, wearing sequins, and leading the young people of the nation to San Francisco                     and on to a liberation where nothing was straight-laced or old-fashioned. And everyone, finally, was welcome--to come                     as themselves. This is not a fairy tale. This was real, mighty real, and disco-sensation Sylvester was the piper. Yale-                    trained sociologist Joshua Gamson uses Sylvester's life to lead us through the story of the 1970s, when a generation                     took off its shame. Celebrity, sociology, and music history mingle in this endlessly entertaining story of a singer who                     embodied the freedom, spirit, and flamboyance of a golden moment in American culture.

Mother Camp: Female Impersonators in America
                    January 1st, 1972
                    ISBN 0226577600 (ISBN13: 9780226577609)

                    For two years Ester Newton did field research in the world of drag queens—homosexual men who make a living                     impersonating women. Newton spent time in the noisy bars, the chaotic dressing rooms, and the cheap apartments and                     hotels that make up the lives of drag queens, interviewing informants whose trust she had earned and compiling a lively,                     first-hand ethnographic account of the culture of female impersonators. Mother Camp explores the distinctions that drag                     queens make among themselves as performers, the various kinds of night clubs and acts they depend on for a living,                     and the social organization of their work. A major part of the book deals with the symbolic geography of male and female                     styles, as enacted in the homosexual concept of "drag" (sex role transformation) and "camp," an important humor                     system cultivated by the drag queens themselves.

As a straight girl in a drag queen's world, Heather has developed                     a saucy, street-smart attitude, along with an unblushingly provacative persona and an always energetic wit. She already                     had the breasts.
