Drag has officially transcended the underground and exploded into the mainstream. Queens have more visibility than ever, and it' s been hard won through decades of perseverance, imagination, and intergenerational support within local drag communities. It' s time to honor the queens who paved the way for the new generation of drag and are still carrying out their work today. To create Legends of Drag, a photo book and archive of living drag history, authors Harry James Hanson and Devin Antheus traveled coast to coast, visiting 16 cities to meet 80 legendary entertainers who shared boundless wisdom and powerful anecdotes from their lives. These queens are featured in stunning portraits shot on location and styled with unique floral elements.
