The art of drag has long been a part of New York City's cultural scene. In celebration of Pride month, we welcome a group of thinkers, creators, and artists for a discussion and performances exploring the history of drag in the city, what can be done about the current wave of drag bans, and the inspiring world of drag today.
Hosted by Esther, the Bipedal Entity!, the event features a conversation between Life is Drag creator and multimedia artist Rachel Rampleman, actor, comedian, and entertainer Murray Hill, drag historian, documentarian, educator, and pundit Joe E. Jeffreys, and legal expert Julian Castronovo, as well as performances and conversation with drag artists Klondyke, La Zavaleta, and Paris L'Hommie, and video footage by Rampleman interspersed throughout.
Presented in partnership with Nancy Manocherian's the cell theatre and The Municipal Art Society of New York.
