David and Danna Galan

dragqueen bolivia

Danna Galan is the most famous Bolivian drag queen. In 20 years she constituted a family of 60 members, who work together in La Paz and around. As David, he works with the ministry of culture and just released a book on the history of drag and transvestites in Bolivia: “La China Morena.” In this book you can see how the history of drag has always been very politically involved. Also there is a lot of travesty that is embedded in the Bolivian folklore and culture, as you can see on Danna’s photos.
