As part of his Gay Pride weekend roundup, Erik Piepenburg from the New York Times wrote about some amazing shows in New York and asked me about the state of drag.
"Is it O.K. to cry at a drag show? That’s what drag artists and their fans have been asking in the aftermath of the massacre at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla., this month. For the drag queen Sasha Velour, tears make drag about more than a funny man in a dress.
'Drag promises the queer community transformation, that we can turn pain and make it into something beautiful,' Ms. Velour said. 'Drag can be a source of hope but also a way to process mourning.'"
