Today, on International Day of Drag, I'd like to share some priceless snaps of my dad in drag for a performance in his school days. Of my mom in drag for a performance in her college days. Me in my attempt of drag as a kid. Me in drag recently. Drag is not about wanting to change your sex, or just about dressing up and wanting to look like the opposite sex, it is a performance art. It is creating a caricature of exaggerated femininity and entertaining from that space and play on feminine gender roles. Or in the case of drag kings, exaggerated masculine gender roles. Wearing a dress and wig and heels is just a part of it, the idea and motivation is to not just self express but to PERFORM. I'm so lucky I belong to folks who have pushed the ticket of "normalcy" for performance. And who have always supported me when I did the same. Remember, we're all just born naked, and the rest is all DRAG. And one of my other favourite drag quotes is: Treat everyone you meet like God in #drag Dropping a mujra video tonight. Stay tuned. #internationaldragday #dragqueen #dragking #dragart #indiandrag #dragperformer #performer #dancer #indiandancer #maledancer #queerartist #gayartist #gaymodel #gayindian #gaypride #lgbtq #instagay #gaystagram #gaylife #outandproud #genderfluid #familyphotos #familyofperformers #breakingstereotypes #gratitude #pride #creativelife
