DRAG KING HISTORY

WORKSHOP
Presented by Mo B. Dick
Assembled by Mo B. Dick & Ken Vegas

This presentation is a comprehensive overview of Drag King History from the Tang Dynasty to today. You will learn about the extensive history of female-born performers who donned men’s attire for theatrical purposes from breeches roles to en travesti, variety to vaudeville, male impersonation to drag kings, and drag kings to the gender free. Because women have had a long history of invisibility and marginality, we come forward with this history so these courageous women are recognized.
