DRAG

I spent two years photographing the female-impersonators at the Blue Moon in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. At first I thought I was just photographing dudes in dresses, but what I discovered was that these men are artists and talented performers. There is a common misconception that drag queens “want to be women” or are transvestites which is entirely untrue. This series was made to educate a closed minded community, within a prominent gay town, which ended up having a huge impact on a lot more people than I expected. I showcased the photographs in a gay community center and invited all different walks of life, including five of my “subjects”. From the conservative “rich and classy”, to the average middle class family, to the local rednecks, I had an eclectic audience. I can safely say that every person left a little more open minded to something different.
