The Drag King Book

Author(s): Judith 'Jack' Halberstam (photgraphy Del LaGrace Volcano)


100 photographs, 25 in color. This book, the first to chart the explosive rise of drag kings, combines the photographs of Del LaGrace Volcano with the text of Judith Halberstam. The text, a savvy mix of interviews and theory, contains important insights on the notion of female masculinities as exhibited by the drag king scene. The photographs of drag kings in London, New York, and San Francisco showcase these exuberant performers with an appropriate sense of admiration. They include posed studio shots, live action pictures, as well as the intimate images of drag kings dressing up and practicing their looks. The book celebrates the most important new developments on the New York and San Francisco club scene.
