Drag as an Art: panel discussion
Drew University Special Collections invites the LGBT community to Drag as an Art: panel discussion by drag queen Pissi Myles and photographer David Ayllon. The discussion will focus on the history and culture of drag, and how it is recognized as an art form.
Pissi Myles (Joseph D’Angio) has been noted as one of the most talented drag queens in the area by fans, critics, and peers. She’s been featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine, Out In Jersey, Mic, RuPaul’s What’s the T Podcast, and more! Photographer David Ayllon’s work has been featured in the Huffington Post, NEXT Magazine (cover), Out In Jersey and Rangefinder Magazine. His works will be presented at the event. Some of his clients include Rupaul’s Drag Race contestants Katya, Monet Xchange, Miz Cracker, Shea Coulee, as well as Drag Race winners Bob The Drag Queen, Alaska, Trixie Mattel, and Sasha Velour. The discussion will focus on the history and culture of drag, and how it is (and should be) recognized as an art form. Co-sponsored by The Sexuality and Gender Alliance, WoCo, The History Club, the Art Club, and the Art History Club.
