Recommendation: Sunny Drake

Tiara the Merch Girl recommends…

"Other-wise" by and with Sunny Drake

Sunny Drake
Performance artist.

Sunny Drake is a gorgeous FTM (or, as he calls himself, “CARNIVALESQUE MAGICIAN!”) performance artist from Australia that has created some beautiful work around being transgender and dealing with family, relationships, school, and life.

I saw Other-wise twice this year and loved it – so much fun and randomness. There’s clever use of multimedia, flashbacks to school chants, Beryl the Femme Singing Puppet, and a sincere message to his family. You can see videos of his work Other-Wise and Genderqueer Seeking on
