How to Be a Drag Artist
A guide & werkbook on the craft of drag for female dragsters, faux queens, lady queens, drag queens, and other drag lovers. 

This book answers the question i get asked at least once day, “do you have any advice for someone just starting out in drag?” At a whopping 60+ pages it’s a super deluxe collection of advice, stories, and dragwerk covering the full spectrum of the art and craft of drag.

But really the suggestions and advice i offer can be equally of value to any other performance art. Because really this book is about falling in love with what you do and doing it to the best of your ability, always – whether there is one person, one million, or no one watching.

And that’s something EVERY creative, performer, and person can benefit from.

Release date: July 16, 2016

(Psst! Don’t want to wait that long? Here’s the “How to be a faux queen” post that inspired this book!)
