This was my second time photographing Kings N ThingsAustin’s Premier Drag King Troupe. If you haven’t heard of the troupe before, here is an excerpt from their site:

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.

It was KNT’s Love Show this time with some pretty killer performances. My favorite had to be a wonderful lip synch to Madeline Kahn’s stage performance from Blazing Saddles. I have such a great time photographing these shows. I can’t wait for the next one!

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.
