In her new book, historian and photographer, Elyssa Maxx Goodman, explores the dynamic role of drag, from the Jazz Age to Drag Race, in queer liberation and urban life. Drag has played a vital role in the creative life of New York City, but the evolution of drag in the city—as an art form, a community and a mode of liberation—has never before been fully chronicled. Now, for the first time, Elyssa Goodman unearths the dramatic, provocative untold story of drag in New York City in all its glistening glory.
