Some of the disgusting features of a drag music videos are makeup, costumes, acting and the interpretation of the artist which all work together and if done wrong it can make an okay or worst drag performance but if done right it could make for a really great and even an amazing performance. The makeup has to be expertly finished, wigs have to be on point, costumes have to be fashionable and suit to the build of the person and the acting of a female has to be so good that you can fool a person with your voice and body
Drag exploded in the 1990s, which was very different from how it was look at in the 70s (Brinkley). Drag had become more popular in LGBT+ community and in American culture (Miller). RuPaul was in high interest in the early 1990’s because his album “Supermodel of the World” that came out in 1993.He was the first drag queen ever to get onto the pop charts. When asked to comment about being a drag queen he said, “Drag Queens are like the Shamans of our society, reminding people of what’s funny and what’s a stereotype”. Many drag movies also got national attention. Some of these movies were “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” in 1994 and “Too Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar” in 1995 (Miller). One of the most famous drag movies to come out of the 1990’s is Jenny Livingston’s “Paris is Burning” which features African American drag ball culture and showed what goes into transforming into drag
Later in 1972, she wrote the book “Mother Camp: female impersonators in America”. In this book Newton had spent time with drag queens for two years, she went with them to the loud bars they appeared, the chaotic dressing rooms where the homosexual men transformed themselves as women and the cheap apartments that the
Information was a crucial role in this presentation. I wanted my audience to actually learn from my speech. Drag racing is a very complex topic. I knew my listeners would be lost if I didn’t explain what it was. I used credible, up to date sources to engage my listeners. It helped a lot for me to have a lot of knowledge on the topic. Having knowledge on the topic helped me feel confident in giving my presentation. It is actually intimidating being a girl with knowledge of drag racing. I feel like people underestimate women who take interest in drag racing and cars. Many feel drag racing is such a masculine sport that girls can’t compete with guys. I chose to include facts
Madame de Pompadour may have only been chief mistress of the king of France, but she was most definitely a queen. Although she was common born, she could play the clavichord, was well learned in many arts, had a thirst for literature that lasted all her life, and seduced the king. She was admired by many, and thought to be beautiful and charming as well as extremely intelligent. Among her friends were intellectuals such as Voltaire, and the queen of France, despite her being a bourgeois mistress, and a rather different one at that.
Claudette Colbert dazzled audiences as the “girl-next-door” actress of the 1930s and this made her role as Cleopatra that much more appealing. In 1934, women still struggled in the United States to escape their set gender role. A sexually charged and intimidating star may have been too much, too soon for the multitudes of this time; Colbert was perfect for the role. “Colbert offered a model of all that was 'tasteful and attractive' in contemporary female sexualit...
More recently, cross-dressing has been seen in popular culture, with, among many others, drag diva RuPaul, the movie, The Crying Game (1992), and, as an example of female to male crossdressing, singer Madonna. This gives a sense that transvestitism and performing are interrelated, not merely “historically” or “culturally,” but psychoanalytically, through the unconscious and through language. (Garber, 1992) To Marjorie Garber, this represents a notion that there is a naturalness to this behavior, since the common theme crosses so many boundaries, including time. It does seem as if society is tolerant of the idea of cross-dressing for art’s sake. However, what about cross-dressing in everyday life?
Mother, lover, warrior, femme-fatale. Mother of a country, lover of all that brings beauty, warrior of the state, femme-fatale over all men; this was Cleopatra Queen of the Nile. Cleopatra’s intelligence, wit and beauty are still remembered and written about to this day. Born a Greek, Cleopatra adapted to the Egyptian ways and even learnt their native tongue, a feat which had not been ccomplished since the Ptolemies had first ruled. Although not a “true Egyptian”, she utilized her tremendous aptitude and cunning female ways to gain and provide, for her country that she so loved. Cleopatra was a born ruler and did so with a flourish that would later be her undoing. Cleopatra’s seductive, yet absolute ability to keep Egypt in the means of profit and gain was accomplished through her fabled beauty, cunning intelligence and political know how and intimate details of
