About the Author

Jake Hall is a freelance writer who has written for Dazed Digital, i-D, VICE, Highsnobiety, INTO, Refinery29 UK, and British Vogue, among others. They have written on topics from sustainability in fashion and body-shaming in queer communities, to government crackdowns on queer people, and intersex genital mutilation. Alongside this work, they are studying for a PhD at the University of Birmingham. Jake's research aims to illuminate the link between high fashion and queer theory, as well as arguing the potential of clothing to radically challenge and subvert the social constructs of gender, sexuality, and race.

Reviews

"Highly enjoyable, extremely interesting and very accessible, this book is an essential guide to drag, its history, its impact and its continued potency."
--Amrou Al-Kadhi

"So fun, so thorough and so beautiful! It taught me more about drag than I could have ever imagined, because until this book it hasn't been quite so well documented."
--Amelia Abraham

"I've always thought drag queens could save the world and this book helps prove my point."
--Miss Coco Peru

"Only a book as beautiful and broad as this could possibly honour the history of drag. This book is utterly desirable as an art object but also hugely informative about the art of drag, the queer rebellion of drag and drag as a political statement as well as cultural art form. A thing of beauty!"
--Juno Roche
