Kings N Things | Austin’s Premier Drag King Troupe

Recently I had the opportunity to photograph the annual Kings N Things (Austin’s Premier Drag King Troupe) performance, and I leapt at the chance. If you haven’t seen the troupe before, here’s an excerpt from their website:

Kings N Things is a performance troupe that consciously performs gender in the spirit of non-conformity. Our shows provide a forum for a mixture of fun entertainment and serious activism on gender-related subjects, as well as many other socio-political issues.”

A couple of years back when I was studying photojournalism at UT, I dreamt of turning in a project like this. By the end of a night of shooting, I was exhausted and my cameras were covered in glitter, but I was thrilled I had been a part of such a great performance.

    I hope I would make a decent grade on the project if I was back in school.
