Toutes les photos sont de l'auteure. La scène s'éclaire et la salle devient silencieuse. Sur l'estrade, la silhouette d'un jeune homme brun se détache. Il porte un bleu de travail et des chaussures de sécurité. Sous les ricanements de la foule, il mime des pompes puis s'embrasse les biceps.

The Drag Scene That Gives the Young, LGBTQ, and Homeless Hope

It's not the first time a documentary has been made about the ballroom scene appropriated by Madonna for her David Fincher–directed "Vogue" music video. In 1991, Jennie Livingston's Paris is Burning served as a time capsule for the 80s New York ballroom scene that was the inspiration for current hit TV show RuPaul's Drag Race. That documentary can now be seen as a prologue to an era where more and more trans characters are popping up in the mainstream. Kim Chi's 'Femme, Fat, and Asian' Fierceness: C. Winter Han Discusses the Subversive Runner Up to 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 8.

Few RuPaul’s Drag Race fans could have been surprised Monday night when the show crowned as champion the 29-year-old New Yorker who goes by the name Bob the Drag Queen.

Kim Chi's 'Femme, Fat, and Asian' Fierceness: C. Winter Han Discusses the Subversive Runner Up to 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 8

Over the course of Logo’s cult-beloved competition’s eighth season, the personable and funny Bob so skillfully met the expectations for what a Drag Race winner should be that, during the finale, RuPaul asked her just how much she’d studied the show before joining it. But the most memorable moments of the night belonged to a runner-up, Kim Chi, as had many of the most memorable moments of the season. A 28-year-old Chicagoan and first-generation Korean American, Kim Chi’s fantastical outfits had frequently impressed the judges even while her physical clumsiness had become a running joke. In the finale, Kim Chi’s original song, “Fat, Femme, and Asian,” performed partially in Korean, took direct aim at three labels frequently treated as undesirable in the gay male mainstream.

In many ways, as the show has grown, so have I and that’s lead me to having this complicated relationship with not only Drag Race, but also with RuPaul and especially his fanbase. As I move into a stage in my life where I am more aware of things, I cannot look at even some of my favorite shows and feel like they are without criticism. That is part of the burden that comes with being socially aware. You start to recognize how oppression is packaged, watered down and sold in mainstream entertainment under the guise of comedy.

While Drag Race is a show about an artform that is supposedly subversive and counter culture, it is effectively part of the mainstream and is bound to be problematic, and therefore isn’t immune to criticism. I have a segment on my YouTube channel where I answer questions sent to me from viewers called True Tea. Recently, I was in New York shooting for MTV and speaking at a college. We touched base with GenderFlux creator, Elliott Alexzander.

We asked them to give us a run down on the brand and what is to be expected in the coming months as Pt.3 of the campaign is set to begin on April 1st 2016. From Elliott, Just over a year ago, myself along with several others started a campaign that we felt could bring real change in many ways. Pt.1 of the journey was complete. Pt.2 of this journey brought us GenderFlux!

“I feel there was no better individual suited for the challenge of designing a collection of clothes that defy gender stereotypes and fit a diverse range of body types.” My mentor, my life coach and my friend, Barry Brandon, has also been along for this amazing ride preparing myself and the rest of the GenderFlux team for all that is about to happen. This is why Pt.3 of the GenderFlux campaign is so important! “What better place to serve the world than from the internet? Eclosion, le quotidien d'une femme transgenre. On entend tout et son contraire sur Conchita Wurst.

Eclosion, le quotidien d'une femme transgenre

Parfois citée comme étant une personne transgenre emblématique de l’actualité, l’information est parfois démentie et on ne sait généralement pas trop comment situer la chanteuse sur ce plan. Conchita Wurst est-elle une femme transgenre, une personne non-binaire, un travesti, une drag-queen, une femme à barbe, un homme homosexuel ? Commençons par les données consensuelles : Conchita Wurst est la personne ayant gagné l’Eurovision en 2014.

Elle représentait alors l’Autriche. Le titre de sa chanson lors du concours est Rise Like a Phoenix, ce qui se se traduit par « s’élever comme un phénix », référence évidente à l’animal mythologique renaissant de ses cendres. Son nom est lui-même provocateur, mélange les genres et les références anatomiques d’apparence contradictoire ; de même que sa barbe, couvrant la moitié de son visage, côtoyant des courbes bien dessinées, un maquillage la mettant en valeur, et des vêtements toujours très féminins.
