Thanks, y’all. I really appreciate the compliments – I’ve had a lot of last minute problems come up with the drag show (people getting cold feet, technical difficulties with the sound system, etc.) and was in such a low mood yesterday that I seriously considered just cancelling the whole thing. But heck, if chicks are gonna think I’m sexy then it’ll all be worthwhile!
Daowajan, figuring out how to dress is actually pretty easy. You just think of some (stero)type of guy and do your best to imitate. Finding a place to be a drag king is more difficult. While practically everyone has at least heard of drag queens the idea of a drag king is foreign to most people. When I started the drag show here I had people ask me how you could have a drag show with all girls, or if we were going to dress up like drag queens ourselves, or even if I had invented the idea of drag kings! Like I’m that clever!
If you’re really interested, once you’re in Madison you could suggest a student drag show, or find out if there’s already a drag queen show that could be expanded to include drag kings. I know one of the area gay bars had a drag king show a couple of years ago (my friend’s mom organized it), but I don’t know if it was a one-time event or what.
