Every day of my life.

Someone wrote…

I’m so sick of being in drag every day of my life.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Ha–reminds me of when I was in college & this group of mostly (but not all) straight people had a drag party. If you dressed in drag you got in free. I’m a girl who dresses mostly in boy’s clothes every day & I didn’t think about the party much, arrived with some friends &, flustered, just looked at the kid at the door and was like, “I’m not paying.” It’s stuck with me 5 years later though, a meaningful moment, I guess because of the feeling that drag is a fun thing for these people but there’s so so much more at stake for me, for some reason. Like, drag implies some sort of farce but this is my life people!

    Sick of being in drag? Simple solution: go neked.

    We’re all in costume. Lights, camera, pose….

    The image I present to the world is much less important to me that the image I keep in my heart for me, and for those who matter to me. I have always been a terrifically secretive person – there have always been tons of things I would never do or try because I was afraid of losing control. I have always wanted life to come at me on my own terms. Didn’t always work out that way.
