Martijn Crowe started the project “Drag Queens of the World” from an interest in the transformation men go through when they dress up as a drag queen. “We made studio photos of them before and after their transformation, we interviewed them, we went to their clubs”, says Martijn. “We found that all Drag Queens are entertainers that create a world of glitter and glamour, but our project also shows a great diversity in the appearance and the motivations to dress as drag. Bolivian Drag Queens are deeply rooted in the traditional culture, and their shows serve a political purpose, while in Cambodia, Drag Queens dress up and dance as a part of their work as prostitutes”.
On the 1st of April we start crowdfunding campaign for the book “Drag Queens of the World” , so check our website for the updates and information.
