    “Having that sense of community is important in a world that is trying to eat you up and spit you out.”

    this is so so true and important and should honestly be the slogan of my friend group. also Jem looks absolutely stunning in picture #7 like whoa there!

    i honestly don’t know too much about the history of drag yet, but it seems to me like this generation is managing to present gender complexly while staying true to itself and to the defining spirit of drag, which is SO COOL

      beansprout if you are looking for an amazing place to start with drag history may i humbly suggest the movie ‘paris is burning’? it is about drag queens in the ballroom scene in 1980s new york city and is a really good look about how drag gives strength to its community members. you will just die it is so fabulous <3

    I recently went to a drag show put on at my university, and it was honestly one of the most beautiful and uplifting things. And it finally gave me the push to come out and get involved with the lgbtqa+ community on campus so basically drag is love drag is life

    Yooooo I live in the Bay and I know pretty much nothing about drag queens so this is cool

    this is seriously cool. I like the idea that men should be able to wear what they want and express themselves in any way they choose – I mean us girls don’t get anything for wearing trousers do we? <3
