"The Drag King Anthology examines the 'other side' of the drag culture -- female-to-male performers who embody masculinity as a statement of queer identity. This unique book dispels the myth that drag kings are simply 'women doing drag,' presenting entertaining and enlightening essays that address gender, sexuality, and feminism. Using prose, poetry, and photographs, an eclectic mix of scholars, performers, and fans offer cultural and political insights on the international growth and development of drag king troupes and communities."
