Drag in the Digital Age

May 16, 2018 · New York, United States of America

Drag -- as performance, as culture, as community -- preexists internet culture by decades, but like everything, it has been shaped by the development of digital life. The emergence of social media offers new opportunities for self-definition, including new ways of performing genders and sexualities, for self-promotion, and for the representation of previously invisible communities. Join QX for Drag in the Digital Age to explore the relationship between drag and digital, gender and bodies, and self-promotion and self-identity in our new digitally mediated reality.

DRAG PERFORMANCES will follow the panel discussion and Q&A -- bring tips!
